    Default Chumpcartastrophe @ Mosport..with Video!

    Grabbed this off Oppo-lopnik. -- > Link < --

    Good (?) crash at Mosport... A CRX is mentioned (say it aint #6-1-3), and the BMW in the video has a nice Perry performance sticker in the dash.



    The comments on YouTube are entertaining.

    LOL comments are retarted.

    If you panicked because brake lights came on, you're doing something wrong.

    Seems the driver lifted, which rotated the car and sent him into the grass (did I get it right??). I didn't really see what he was worried about, but the car in front could have been much closer than it appears.. Anyone know who it is ?

    Was not us.......

    From the title, says AISA Wringers, they are another team running a CRX. Pretty scary video, know several people who have pulled that same maneuver, some of them hit the wall on the inside.

    Looks like a lift throttle (never good to do in 2) oversteer. Lucky, could have been much worse. He should have just kept his right foot down and aimed for the new patch of pavement, lots of grip if he just held on a little longer.

    Greg, is that the "Big Deal" team you are driving with?

    I believe that's actually the car that Carl and group built. If you good AISA Wringers you find posts by Carl on Montreal Racing talking about the incident.

    Seems like they fixed it and used it for Sunday too.

    Totally lifted/panicked. Line was okay and steering input was normal. Ouch.

    you see his right foot on the gas all the time. If he lifted, he didn’t lift much. Looks like he was steady and only when he lost it that he went for the brake..

    I didn't hear a lift. Looks like he wasn't too smooth with the wheel and it got away on him. I didn't see any brakes on the E30 either.

    Yeah you guys are right just watched it again with sound and doesn't seem like he really lifted. So it just rotated?

    butt hurt much? racing is dangerous. He did it all by himself. I was with Buzz, Redgreen and Possum, At mosport they were listed as redgreenbuzz.

    Not that I see brake lights in the vid, but even Clive and Glen said watch out for the brake checking among other tricks, it's racing, not gentlemen racing.



    as for the vid, something is up with that car, look as it entered turn 1, his head moves, there's no bump there?

    Also, why does the camera not rotate with the car when it flips? Camera position stays upright. Weird.

    Car did not flip, just went very sideways, then the camera came off it's mount.

    God knows why a car gets loose sometimes when there no reason for it

    ya you're right.. Seems to kind of clunk into position as he inputs to the right

    doesn't look like he flipped, just hit the inside wall, drove on the two right side wheels for a bit then landed back on all fours.. Camera stayed sideways

    we should tell them to try out gentlemen gt if they want more gentle racing!

    There's a small dip right there. In my car I need to wait for the car to settle after being a bit light before getting back to full throttle. Too soon and you lose the back end. Spun right the a lot before I figured it out.

    My other car is 10 motorcycles that don't start

    Oh the exit of 1 I know of a dip, but don't remember on the entry? My big boat soaks it up?

    I only notice that the track was to narrow by about 6 inches at the bottom once. Bad design Lol

    looks like he fucked up.

    slow mo shows him turning left hard and then letting off.

    regardless of the car infront of him, he shouldnt be grabbing it that hard to get into his line. if hes slowing down that much, dont take the line where your exit is a wall.
