      things are already bad enough. I don't think stopping the car with the rear end still in the track is a smooth move. like the GT2 has done here.

      Pretty clear these guys aren't trained professionals. Seems like he was more concerned with the well being of the other driver than he was with himself.

      And for all of the armchair race car drivers in here, at least these guys have the balls to take their cars (that likely cost more than my house) to the track and give them a run rather than hard parking on Sunday mornings at Starbucks. Mistakes happen. At least this one happened on a track.

      I don't really understand why he was diving towards the inside of the turn like that. If he missed his braking point, you'd think he'd be trying to go straight on to the left. This looks like some sort of insane overtaking attempt but really I'm guessing he just missed his braking point and was hoping the Pagani wouldn't turn in...

      I guess he didn't want to lift, because fear of lifting. So you gotta give the 911 driver props for that.

      The Mercedes SLS had exploding bolts on the door hinges that detonated in the event of a rollover so you could remove the door without opening it. Pretty cool.

      All that matters is that everyone is ok. I'm sure both those guys can go back to the car store and buy another one and try it over again.

      Are these bolts designed by Taketa?

      HPDE/lapping is not racing.

      Common problem is people with more performance than their skillset/seat time can handle. Unless the brakes failed on that GT2 that was some ignorant corner entry for the given scenario.

      I didn't say the people on the track were racers. I said there were a lot of armchair race car drivers in the thread.

      Totally agree on your second point. Still impressed they are out there driving the cars instead of taking selfies with them.

      One could argue the guy in a computer on wheels is in more of an "arm chair" than many of the "analysts" on this forum.

      I remember when the camera car behind me was baffled by my line and posted the following,
      "A unique line through turn 1, as performed by an EVO driver. I was impressed that he drove away after this maneuver with only a bruised ego. Those EVOs are tough cars!"

      "Dave Stanley9 years ago
      Update - it turns out a brake problem was the inspiration for this. 100+ mph with no brakes must be real exciting!"
