At least the guy walked away from the crash. My hat is off to the guy for taking a risk for charity.
I'm sure he had fun behind the wheel of an Enzo, but how many of us would risk injury for the benefit of others?
Living in Chicago, you need certain driving skills (especially on a moto) to keep up with and avoid the minivans and suv's that are out looking for blood. Out here, the unofficial speed limit down side streets and alleys is 50 MPH-with 2 inches of snow on the ground.
But, I doubt that I would be able to drive as well as Mr. Griffin. The man was out of his element, and mistakes happen in those situations.
Fortunately, he was uninjured and has the insurance/bank account to pay for a mistake like that.

i mean this with all due respect, but risk?
"Celebrities, including Griffin, were to split a pool of $250,000 for their favorite charities."
with a red-carpet list that "...included Wycleaf Jean, Reggie Bush, Bow Wow, Jackie Chan and Nadia Bjorlin..." they could have each easily donated the 250,000USD per charity, instead of splitting a total 250,000 between a dozen charities. 250k twelve ways is better than nothing, but this was an organized press event where some media a-listers wanted a 'humanitarian' reason to have some totties (closed racetrack), race elite sports cars against each other, and have people see them do it (positive face time).
once again, no malice intended, but i just see a bunch of pampered moguls making a day of sport for themselves (read: next to no sacrifice) and reaping applause for it.
