Well understand where you are coming from and fully agree that stupidity is an offense that nature often treats harshly.

But an idiot with more horses then they can control is much more likely to leave the tarmac and practice flying into the surrounding countryside at lethal speeds.

Of course the idiot in a poorly maintained banger that they think is a rally car can achieve the same and often the only thing that prevents them from doing so is the lack of power.

Put the kid who's been hammering his 1.2 Clio round with no problems into a Porche 911 or any other high powered rear wheel drive beasty and neither the kid nor the supercar is likely to survive the first rainy day.
Put em into a 1970's or 80's, pre traction control supercar and they won't survive the first hard corner.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
