Japanese tyre ski-jumping Answered

Having seen a few good videos contributed by fungus I thought I'd add this one:

What happens when you roll tyres down a ski-jump?
How fast do they go, how far do they get?

Sometimes English words are incorporated by other languages (just like we do: restaurant, etc). So maybe they don't have an exact translation for sports car.

I heard it too, BTW.

The PA Dutch are famous for this. Speaking a somewhat corrupted form of German, I have over hear this a few times: Ich schlagt du im der head ! (I will hit you in the head !) :-)
