Default Bad Day at the Autocross

Looks like this course needs more run-off room...

I feel for the guy, hope he gets up and running soon. The good news is he probably didn't get hurt, cars can always be replaced.

Now wait for the ignorant folks in other media outlets to make comments about another rich guy crashing his corvette, most of whom have never driven anything faster than their 200hp Golfs. If I had a dollar for everytime active handling saved me, I'd have several more dollars in my pocket!
