    Road Atlanta this past weekend. I was winning my damn class by 21 seconds when this happened. If I didn't pull the wheel back to the left at the last second I probably would have killed this guy. This is turn 1 at Road Atlanta, about a 90+ mile an hour turn in my car under normal circumstances. Enjoy...

    He was written up for the accident, I was not. I had to go to medical from this, checked out fine, but today I am sore as FUCK. Damage is severe, but it will be rebuilt.

    PLEASE RIGHT CLICK AND SAVE AS

    The other guy was fine, just shaken up. I am bruised from my straps and my neck is sore today, I suspect he is the same way.

    I'm suprised you didn't see that coming, you should have noticed him starting to lose it in that turn. Glad you're in one piece

    Oh, your server is :Owned: as well.

    I did see it coming. Usually in situations like this you only get to make 1 decision. I actually made 3.

    You have to watch the video closely, his car loses it well before the deep part of the turn. He comes from 3/4 track left to the right and actually skims the "green/white" curbing on the right side (this is crossing the track once), at this point you see my input was to the left to go around him on the left (1st decison), His car then comes back across the track ass end going off drivers left (2nd time he crosses the track) and you see my input to the right AND you hear me hit the gas (2nd decision), he then crosses the track again headed back to the right. At the last second when I knew I was going to hit him I have a 3rd input to the left to avoid hitting him in the door and killing him.

    Bottom line, at every drivers school in the country they teach you "In a spin, BOTH feet in" he didn't do this or he wouldn't have come back across the track again. Chalk it up to just one of those things, but...

    Yeah, if he hadn't swung back across the track, you would have cleared it no problem. :sad2:

    Good job aiming away from the door! :bigthumb:

    Sucks man - if you had stuck to taking him on the left - you may have cleared it.

    Oh well. Glad you didnt get written for it -- at first when I watched it, I was like - "Wow - that guy's drifting the corner -- uh oh"

    the 'door is ajar' beeper still beeps at you in your race car! :big grin: :bigthumb:

    that sucks man... you did what you could... that guy crossed the track twice :(

    had you gotten out of the gas as soon as he started to get loose or if he had just gone off everything would have been OK...

    was the other driver OK?

    I wanted to get out fast because I saw the smoke coming from the front. I was worried that the car was going to catch on fire. I did however look at the corner and they were already waving.
