Well, the object of motor car/bike isn't to get killed, but it is inevitable that many will get killed and maimed - including pedestrians/on-lookers/- because of the nature of the sport.
And, the sport undoutedly encourages members of the public to drive at silly speed, which in turn, leads to deaths, maiming and brain damage etc.
In the past 12 months, in my smallish town, two young motorcyclists have died while driving at silly speeds.
Indeed, it could be argued that bodies like the BBC are complicite in these deaths for airing Top Gear which is all about powerful cars that can drive at speeds well over the speeds limits of the country.
