Some people should not be allowed to turn off traction control.

Looks like if he would have spun the wheel the opposite way he was sliding (what he didn't do), then he would have just spun out and probably missed the curb.

I don't know if traction control was the issue. Sounded like a downshift of some sort.

I think he was well past the point where he could have corrected. Although, if he would have done that and hit the brakes earlier, I think the hit would have been a lot lighter.

I can't believe how close that course was to a hazard. Too close for comfort for me to run on a layout like that.

that was a pretty good lick that car took. Looked like the rear end was broke since the back wheel angle was waaaaay off. I bet he was sore the next am huh. I would have liked to been a fly on the wall when he called his wife and asked for a ride home

That entire course was to dicey for me. I like a lot of room for error. I have bee snake bit hard twice and was OK. I tend to slow if there is obstacles that might hurt my car. Ouch I feel his pain. The insurance man tends to frown on this also. Never race more than you can afford to loose is my rule.

I like your rule. It's surprisingly true, because of videos like this and the insurance man :/

I can't tell if that feature was a finish line or a 180 when he hit the throttle and lost it... any ideas?

Yep, I'm right there too. I actually just won't register if I'm not comfortable.

From what I remember, that seemed like it was a finish line.

And here I thought this thread was going to be about one of the last events out at the old airport.

Many of the "low speed" events I've been to in the Corvette club is actually medium/high speed and the course isn't made for it (ie: too much loose dirt/gravel, poles and ditches are too close, etc..).
