This one isn't "bad" driving, but a bad choice of line that unsettled the car. This is a very fast sweeper, turn 8, at Roebling Road Raceway.

He's completely inside the pit lane at the start of the video. Fail.

Jump to 7:00.

The video is taken from inside a $600 beater miata gone ultra-cheap trackrat special. Ebay coilovers, almost completely used SM cast-off RA1's.

The driver of the black corvette used to be CDI for the local Porsche club.

I liked your "allergic to apexes" comment in the other thread. Horrible.

This is what happens when you "drive the car in front of you." His wheel inputs are mimicking the car in front, instead of driving his own line.

SCCA Spec Miata at Sebring this Sunday had a one lap dash to the finish after a series of yellows. Frustration and egos begat predictable asshattery.

What's that I hear about Porsche drivers? This is exactly what it looks like- and victim is freshly built IT Integra.

Directly behind him. Supposed bad qualifying had the Porsche pushing hard to the front on the first lap. Ya know- stuff like four wheels off in the grass and so on. I can't come up with a reasonable explanation for it.

Found this on a regional blog:
The Acura Integra of Cliff Ira and the Porsche 944 of Shane Doles and Charles Coker had an incident at Turn 9. The car of Doles and Coker was disqualified for “Avoidable contact”.

I'm impressed. At :29 you can see that the driver saw him coming in his mirrors and avoided being the first punt-ee. Nice awareness.

... what in the world? How is that even possible? Seems like an amateur among pros, or a seriously messed up car.

That is what would happen if you let me on the track in that car... the difference is I KNOW this... he didn't seem to understand.

I have had that exact feeling, but it was on a public highway on a bridge after a light snow when I was on ultra high performance summer tires. I was a dumbass in my early 20's and didn't know any better about the summer vs winter tires... only drove on "no season" tires before then.

I ended up crossing 5 lanes of road and hitting the drivers side rear corner on the concrete barrier. I had time to think about it and chose to take it on the corner rather than attempting to straiten the car out and possible wiping out the whole drivers side from front to back against the concrete if I had kept sliding.
