Looks like everybody gets airborne then overcorrects.....

Is that the cause of all those 45 degree to turn radius marks?

It must be nice to have more money than sense.

I wrecked a '70 Nova in High School and I was pretty torn up. That was just a Nova...

Ok, It doesnt look to me as if you could do what he did on that corner, unless he went into it just WAY TOO HOT. the left turn that he should have been set up for doesnt look that bad, even coming over the hill from the previous corner.

I know that the DIABLO is an un-forgiving car. Lambo usually insists that you come to their driving school in Italy so you can get some high speed stick time before you take delivery of one. Actually anyone can go through the school they offer if you can ante up the 14G or so for the class.

I still dont see just how he did what he did coming out of the previous corner and going in to the Left hand sweeper...

I heard about a guy thay put a GT40MkII into a guard rail at a vintage race at Road america one year. I had a friend that was at the corner watching, He said the guy just sat there STUNNED from what he had just done...WOW.

You can see many many others have done it at varying speeds....that was exactly my guess...

I bet the spectators along the front stretch got a big kick out of seeing him go "airborne" and then shit his pants.

Does it happen often? Are most as spectacular?

Thanks! I have seen several Bimmers, 911s and Vettes go off from Nelson's when they just can not accept a Z28 reeling them in.. :)

i think you are supposed to line your helmet up to certain dots on the bridge and you arent supposed to lift either...somewhat similar to a turn in Lime Rock
lift and crash
I just cant wait for the upcoming Watkins Glen TT we are doing
I love that track
high speed blind corners are the best
and the esses are the bomb

a guy I work with knows the guy who totaled that lambo. Unfortunatley there weren't many spectators there that day because it was a PCA open track day. Since it wasn't race just a track and test day, he filed a report with insurance and got a new one.
