Time Trials In Freedom Square or An Accident Waiting To Happen

Another day, another unique event happening in Freedom Square.  From our apartment we could hear loud screeching but we weren't sure what the heck was going on.  We made our way down to the square later in the day and found they were doing sports car and motorcycle time trials. 

Sports cars would frantically drive a course as quickly as possible and make their way back to the start.

This was all done on one of Kharkiv's famous locations.  It would be like icing over the reflecting pool in Washington D.C. and having a figure skating competition.

I was able to grab a few seconds of video of what was happening.  The only thing between the cars and the spectators was a plastic tape which would probably stop a speeding car from hitting us, right?
