Yes, they did, they came to a halt and were shell shocked, I was checking if the scene behind is okay, after I escaped the numb-skull by a whisker.

The dashcam reads out the GPS speed, so the speedo speed is approx 10% more, IIRC I was cruising at 90ish kmph, and once I saw this guy swerving towards the bikers, I moved slightly across the median, only to be shocked to see him change direction towards me, head-on. I actually slowed down and moved to extreme right, as I had nowhere else to go.

Apart from your good reflexes, you were really lucky there was no vehicle behind him

Am guessing D&D or drowsiness. I did not have the option of moving to the left for 2 reasons. 1 - Was originally anticipating the Dost guy to cross the path on my left, after his first stunt. 2 - It would have been a close call with my speed and the shell shocked 2 wheelers slowing down.
Am beginning to think if someone wanted to kill me! stupid:

That he was mika hakkinen, and could drift his way into the right angled mud road ? Atleast people should value their own lives ? :deadhorse
I saw him in the opposite lane, then Stunt 1 happened, which was a sudden swerve towards the two wheelers, he was at good speeds, and then Stunt 2 happened, the swerve turned towards me!
