Dude in the s2000 doesnt even try to save it. It starts to oversteer and he just rides out out.

Does the s2000 guy not know how the steering wheel works?

Agreed. My son drove better than that in his go kart when he was just 8 years old. I need to know where this is so that I never EVER encounter these people on a track.

Note to self: Avoid asshat in hipster glasses with fancy shift **** driving S2000 or Miata with non- Snell rated motorcycle helmet.

Looks like they were spinning on purpose to make video.

What track is that? Harris Hill?

I think you're correct on both counts Rick. Based on one of their other videos:
(it mentions Harris Hill on youtube)


It's laughable that there's actually not too much difference between their wet vs. dry performance.

If a guy canīt even buckle the helmet I suppose we cannot really expect much from it

Spinning on purpose as a demonstration would more likely be done with an experienced driver with a real helmet. Asshat may have possibly been doing it on purpose but I can't imagine wanting to risk rolling over with those sideways entries into the grass. And all of the dirt and crap entering the car is pretty stupid, too.

I vote for being stupid and dangerous, whether the spins were purposeful or not.

Those driving skills are almost as laughable as what you pass of as a race track. Concrete slabs in a cornfield. No kerbs, armco/tire walls, marshalls, brake markers etc.

MURICAHHH!!!!!

BTW, no cornfields. Way too hot/dry to grow corn in TX. Those are Mesquite "trees." There's probably a steer/oil well/gas well out there somewhere too.

Not that much asshattery...


Though attempting to follow a high-dollar Spec Miata at speed with my stock-suspension/14x6 ZII wearing/150k mile Miata was extremely stupid.

And I could have sworn I straightened the wheel before leaving the pavement.

At least you had both hands on the wheel (6 & 9) and your helmet done up. You also recovered fairly gracefully. The first videos are enough to make me weep.

Pretty sure those guys in the "s2000 vs Miata crash compilation 2013 trackdays - YouTube" video would have been black flagged quickly and booted out on their **** until they'd proven they could actually drive on a track here in Australia - nobody likes wasting their track time.

Steering around a track with one hand on the steering wheel? No wonder the S2000 guy just rode-out the spins.

Yeah, any of those spins would be mandatory black flag here, too.
