Damn, glad he made it through that. That happened at Pacific Raceways in Kent, WA. At the last track day I attended I would come around that same bend at 140+, don't think I would have been as fortunate if I had lost it.

First time I saw that I thought the driver was dead. It is incredible...

More importantly, what is that smiley in your sig OP?

It may supposed to be beating a dead horse, but it's just not...quite...right....

I think I read somewhere that the car didnt have a cage or a bar? I could be wrong though. I know Subies are tough cars, my best friend had an 06 WRX that he flipped down a twisty by Mt. Diablo. Car rolled 5 times and landed on its lid, he got out just fine. Although he had a helluva time climbing back up to the road. Especially in the rain. So he bought another 06 WRX.

Figured that was the video from the name of the thread. Impressive crash, especially to walk away from it.

I used to wear arm restraints when I did track events in my Miata when it was open top. Solo I was what got me started with them since it was mandatory.

Thought so, there are some ripples towards the outside of the turn that can really **** you up... friend of mine went off there at about 170 in a GT1 Corvette. Stuck a small tree right up through the floor of the car.
