If thats the one where the guy rolls the white lancer, he was driving like a feckin prick. It looks like a track day where I thought undertaking people at speed was generally frowned upon. Deserved to roll it, just lucky he didnt take anyone else out at the same time
Sorry, have to agree with rhys on this. He was driving like an utter prick. Its a track day not a race or a demolition derby. You have to respect everyone else on the track and not put them at risk - he couldnt give a flying f**k about anyone else. I was soooo glad when it rolled - lmao - there is a god
I must say, I think she was asking for trouble the way she was driving, undertaking the elise, takin the Porsche just before the cones, daft, but wouldnt go as far as saying she deserved to roll it, I mean... what she really deserved was some better driver training, esp. about track day etiquette... hopefully she learnt a very valuable lesson from this episode, and she should be counting herself very lucky that she walked away.
Roamer, maybe you think I was harse to say I was glad of the outcome, but its about time people acting stupidly got caught and not the innocent bystander. Usually what happens is that she/he would cut someone up and that person would swerve and crash their own car, nice to see the ones driving unrespectfully getting the medicine.
Yes, I agree that the French "track-day rules of etiquette" seem a little laxed from the high standard we see in this country, and youd probably be black flagged and sent home if you tried some of the late overtaking manoeuvres seen on the clip, but some seem to forget that the whole point of track-days and airfield-days is to get out there in relative unrestricted space and push your car and yourselves to and possibly beyond the limit. The Evo was unlucky to blow out a tyre, slide off and roll, but thats the risk you take. I cant believe some of the criticisms above! This is not road driving, this is what people do on track and these are the possible downsides of this risky activity. Get out there and try it, you wont push it quite so hard on the road once youve been in a tight spot or two on track! Respect her driving skill, may the Evo rest in peace....
Im suprised people are saying she deserved it and was driving like a prick etc. It was clear she was a lot more talented than anyone else in the clip, she didnt undertake the elise driver, its a track day, she passed him! Whats the point in going to a track day unless you cant exploit the cars potential?
I dont drift around corners like that but if im on a track ill go as fast as i can, i wouldnt form an orderly queue behind the slow drivers, ever! Some people are speaking without experience..
No you are right it is not a track car but she was on a track and should therefore drive accordingly. If she wanted to drive it like a rallye car then she should go on an off road day. As for you trying it yourself go for it, but trust be you will be black flagged before you know it.
