This Mini-Cup car, when geared correctly and raced on a high-banked half-mile asphalt track, can attain an average speed of more than 100 mph. A head-on collision with a concrete wall at that speed can generate enough g-force to seriously injure anyone, young or old. An underdeveloped human being, such as a 10- or 12-year-old, may not have the strength in his/her neck to withstand those forces and could be subject to basil skull injury without use of the proper safety equipment. Parents must be aware of the risks associated with racing and make sure your kids are well "suited" for the task.
