Bad Day at the Autocross: Corvette Driver Slams Sideways Into Curb

Apparently, this driver had laid down some great times during earlier runs. But then the track and his tires cooled down… And then this happened.

On first glace it doesn’t even look like he’s moving that quickly when when he nails the curb, but since the car goes up on two wheels at impact, he was sliding at a good enough clip to brake some stuff. This goes to show that even with relatively low-speed autocross courses, there should be plenty of run-off space. Here’s hoping this dude gets his ride patched up quickly.
