This is why blindfold slalom racing is a bad idea
This video demonstrates how blindfolded slalom is supposed to go, as well as what it looks like when things go wrong. You even get a glimpse at the aftermath. It seems like it would be a lot more fun with beater cars you didn't care about, not what looks like a pretty clean third-generation Toyota Supra. By running this event on a drag strip with retaining walls, these guys are putting themselves and some nice cars in harm's way. That said, the video below would also appear to be a good reminder of one of life's key tenets: Always pick a good co-driver.
Fair Warning: the video contains some mildly explicit language. Scroll down to check it out, and let us know in Comments if you'd be willing to try blindfold slalom racing.
