Corvette Z06 Hits Deer

If you were to actually sit down and write down all the things that could go wrong when you’re racing, you’d probably never set foot in a race car. I mean high speeds aside, the amount of unknown variables is simply mind boggling. Other drivers, track debris and weather are just a few of the immediate hazards, but wild animals?!? That’s one that even I hadn’t factored in. The following video shows a driver in a Corvette Z06 taking out a deer at speed. It’s one of the more frightening videos I’ve seen in quite some time and it will have me forward scanning the track horizon for what lies ahead next time I’m out there. Click through and check it out.

    wow i f-n hate deers i have lost count on how many times ive had to panic brake to not hit one of those stupid animals. now granted the only animal i actually have hit is a seagul going 100 mph but i see that as revenge for seaguls always crapping on my car.

      Ditto, save I’ve killed a couple of turtles and rabbits going the same speed on the way to Vegas. They make a loud thump, but the rental kept going like a champ.

      I have to agree… I’ve killed a few animals during long roadtrips. It’s annoying how you see them early on, but for some reason, they wait until you’re already very close before they decide to jump in the middle of the road to cross! I busted a turn-signal once because of these animals.
