Racing Hydroplanes Is So Terrifying

Like Nascar, hydroplane racing seems like one of those sports where fans only watch in hopes of seeing a spectacular crash. Making over-powered boats race at speeds of over 200 miles per hour might not be humanity’s best decision, but it makes for some impressively terrifying highlight videos when things go wrong. We’ll just stick with canoes, thank you.

“Like Nascar, hydroplane racing seems like one of those sports where fans only watch in hopes of seeing a spectacular crash.”

Please stop. You are showing your ignorance and doing a disservice to the racers and fans of both sports. I do not know one race fan who hopes to see cars and people wrecked.

How did this ignorant crap start anyway?
