exactly the possible scenario. and the other marks look like a truck which has seen it unfold and stopped to see/help?

Just read an interview with Bam Margera (http://www.heatworld.com/Celeb-News/...is-irrelevant/) and noted the following text:

Tragically, five years ago Bam predicted his friend would be killed in a car accident, when asked if this was true he said: ‘I guess I did say that, and maybe I agree. The dude gets the lightest Porsche possible, puts a Lambourghini engine in it, with like a turbo boost thing. I see him fly down the road and I’m like, you’re going to kil yourself man.’

I had not seen any mention to engine mods or even an engine swap in his GT3... Perhaps it was a Lambo engined supercharged by Underground Racing.... Must have had significant hp & boost...

Again, this is a tragic accident. Very sad story.

Now that I actually have a GT3 which is quite easily the fastest, most capable car I've ever owned, I cannot imagine doing anything above 70mph at night on a wooded 4-lane road with no center dividers.

It's a huge loss for a lot of people that have personal ties to the guy. It's a shameful way to go. I'd personally be pissed if I was sharing that road and I saw a set of HIDs come and go within two blinks of an eye.

From the regular GT3 to the king of the road GT2RS, I definitely respect the speed of these highly capable beasts (but still managed to get a 74 in a 60 speeding ticket on my way to Canada this past weekend).
