The players in this contest are MUCH more experienced, but this almost reminds me of the HTM crash.
The day before the crash the boat had run near 150 mph, and everybody (including one of the persons killed) was talking about it on the internet. The passenger that was killed posted that they were going for more speed the following day with different props. That was the last post he ever made.
I hop everybody involved the best, and hope that nobody dies pursuing this goal to be the fastest.
