Robotic car crashes in Roborace car race series

A robotic car crashed into a wall during Roborace, the world’s first fully autonomous motor car race series. All teams use their own electrically powered self-driving vehicles and self-driving software to race around real-life racetracks. Like all other motor races, the fastest wins.

Long story short, a mechanical limitation the programmers overlooked caused the car to drive straight instead of turning due to the steering being locked.

And once again it raises the question who is responsible when an autonomous vehicle kills someone the owner, designer, builder ,software developer or the manufacturer?

I get how cool this is for people in the related engineering industry, but why would regular or casual race fans ever care about this?

Self driving cars are not the future unless the future is to put human drivers out of work and destroy our economy... Which is what (((some))) would like to do.
