Yeah, the cold tires didn't help but he was way past where hot tires would have helped.

I wish I had a go pro on my car for this event. There was all kinds of fuel for this thread. Daytona really draws out some interesting drivers.

We put the Aim Solo DL + Smarty cam Demo unit into a white cobra. When the driver got out he said "you should have some good video. there was a crash and i spun out twice." i looked at the camera and it didn't turn on.. the auto off was set to 10 min and they where on grid for 16.

I feel a great deal of anger in my heart for that Porsche driver. I heard recently of a dad in india tying down his daughter's alleged rapist, lighting fire to his genitals, and strangling him.

Sounds about right.

What a tool. Hate to think others would drive like that, but I know a couple at my local track who probably would.

Locked up his brakes and lost all steering capability. Apparently the throttle got stuck.

OK... to Brains post: WTF are people in Russia (?) in Ladas thinking???

And to Enginerd's post: How friggen non-chalant is the guy looking away from the incident and back at his phone after that?

You'd think he'd be like "Hmm...I wonder if those dudes strapped into 6 point harnesses in a mangled *** car are going to be able to get out before they drown?" instead of "Hmm...I wonder if that chubby Czech girl is going to respond to my facebook message...?"

Ah wow... Yeah if you listen close you can hear that the throttle doesn't let up at all. That SUCKS. Looked like he was driving a little too close to the ragged edge IMO.

I had a stuck throttle on the highway once when my car was still supercharged and that alone was scary. I was able to shut the car off in q straight line and pull to the shoulder. Can't imagine how helpless that would be in a car five times as fast and with a few hundred feet to make a decision.

Yea...the people witnessing the crash are unbelievable.

You mean you didn't careen down the highway for a few dozen miles, then crash and blame the manufacturer?

that's also what happens when the promoters use highway barriers. Those kinds of barriers are engineered to divert the vehicles momentum skyward. this is in an attempt to prevent a vehicle from braking threw the barrier and entering oncoming lanes of traffic. it suppose to be used at 35mph. at motorsports speed they will launch a car into the air.
