Unhappy Imprezzive roll-over

Have you guys seen this video?
http://web.wtez.net/t/w/tw57472/vide...zarollover.mpg

If you've seen it, I apologize. I just found it on the SCCA Solo2 website. It looks like the guy did everything right, but with the wrong results. He was gaining on the 911 though. It's kind of a long download, but worth it. Keep the shiny side up!

Hey, good find! Most people don't find that on their own...

It's been rolling around the board for ever... I think the guy driving is on the board. Cool clip though isn't it? Kinda scary.

That's Patrick Olsen. He's a member here, when the search function comes back you can find some more great videos of him flinging his "new" Legacy around some tracks.

There was a lot of good discussion about the accident and what he could and couldn't have done, but they're all old enough that they're long gone. Does anyone else think that threads aren't being arhived nearly as long as they should be?

Oh, well. Maybe we should take up another collection for server upgrades...

Thumbs up

For clips of his new car, go to the New England forum and look in the first two or three pages about "bumper cam" movies. There are four or so posts.

It looked like he turned the wrong way, aren't you supposed to turn into the slide?

Actually it just kinda caught him off guard and I think he hesitated in reacting. Realistically he should have turned into it a bit earlier and either saved it by drifting through sideways and losing a ton of speed, or kept it closer to the pavement and possibly just spun it on the pavement instead of the dirt. Not too much you can do at such a high speed, and hindsight is always 20/20. It is an excellent example of what could happen at a track day that I think anyone who is planning on a track day event should watch.

Question

This is really clean footage and is very interesting to me. Hard to guess what he could have done differently, and even harder to do it in a split second.

I'm no expert, but did he brake or lift hard just before the back end came out?? It looks like the nose drops a bit just before the car begins to rotate...I'm just curious...

I'm actually suprised he rolled insted of sliding or spinning completly around, it looked like he was going to come full circle and caught in the grass/concrete edge with the front left?

It looked like it came around very quickly. It didn't seem that he was going too fast or anything, just lost it all of the sudden. Scary!

edit: I thought that he was very composed as he flipped over and crushed the roof on his car. I don't think I would have been so limited in the words I used in the same situation

yes, he seemed more dissapointed and upset with himself than scared, I think we all would though. It didn't look like he had a roll cage though, did he have a harness either?

if i recall correctly, the car rolled because the rear(not sure) tires caught the dirt, most cars would roll at that point...

You guys sure that's a Legacy ... I personally have no clue, but it just looks to small to be a Legacy ... however I think I only remember the triangular hazard switch being in the Legacy's ... dunno.

I found the clip on the SCCA Solo2 site:
http://www.solo2.com/

It's on the message board. That site lists events, schedules and results of LA area autocrosses.

Yes, that is a legacy sedan. A 99 I believe, maybe a 98.

What happened was his low-profile tires dug into the soft grass/dirt and the dirt built up against the rim flipping the car.

Somebody should rename that file.

I'm still more interested in what caused the spin rather than what caused the car to roll over. He didn't seem to be hot into the corner. I'm still curious if he lifted suddenly or something to shift weight forward.
