The Z4 crash looked well nasty, id be well gutty if owt like that happen to me on a track day.

Great little Video, That Z4 crash was very nasty!

Looking at all the cars that went into the tyres most of the "modern" cars looked like they had Minor damage (Although im sure it was worse than it looked) but that Pug 309 just folds on the front end! Crumple zones FTW LOL

I was stood near to the guy filming on a few of those!

Features BMW tool then, wondered if anyone would find the marshal post there like the Scooby does.

The Liquid 197 was lucky !
 
  Turbos.
I liked the sympathy spin from the R27, oh and the NSX of course.

Z4 trying to keep up with a Caterham, major fail!
 
Z4 crash looked unpleasant. were they all from this last action day? never ceases to amaze how many people bin it really - and that's just the one corner!

best i've seen at Quarry involved a couple of cars - a 924 came over the rise, the driver outbraked himself, and the side of the car went into the tyres well before the apex (more or less where that Z4 went), and then someone following him in an XR2 did exactly the same thing - the 924 had bounced out just enough to leave an XR2 sized gap and, fair play to the Fiesta driver, he managed to squeeze it through on the grass at speed. good job no one had either gotten out of the Porsche or made it to it to help really

No that's from all the Action Days (and Japfest) this year.

I like that 'BMW tool' gets a look in at the end, they were a genuinely idiotic bunch.

This is last years vid, incase anyone hasn't seen it...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZ0-zkEyHIE, the standard has improved since last year!

He was on the phone to the wife when we walked past him ...

"I don't think you will be able to use the car this weekend..."

2.14 min both same speed, perhaps oil on track ? evo trick 4wd does a 360deg, yet the 197 just slows and controls to a stop ? better technology on the ESP, more road friendly ?
 
  Turbos.
Thought i'd seen this vid before, some thread resurrection action!

I like the MR2 at 2:31 which loses it in virtually a straight line lol... typical MR2!

I'm the complete opposite :S

I tip-toe through Avon Rise into Quarry, but pitch it hard into Camp.

I'll grow bigger balls.

Camp is sooo frightning for me. It's off camber as you come around and you can feel the back end go light.

I lose alot of time on that corner tbh...
 
Camp corner's really satisfying when you get it right (obv. the quickest corner on the circuit - speed you carry through it and onto the straight is important for lap times if that's your thing) and it's always seemed wise to approach Quarry with something in reserve

It's mostly people who come over the Rise too quick! Flippin' nutters.

Lovely videos so credit must go to Jim, who according to local folklore, is part of a band of brave spectators who go by the name of 'The Quarry Hardcore'.
