Nice. I'm guessing the driver was fairly new to Sears Point, since his passenger was pointing to the 3a apex and he missed the 3b apex by a country mile.

That turn has a blind exit that tightens up, so if you don't know the track, it's easy to drop two wheels of the exit curbing.

Driving too fast too soon.

What kind of car was it? RWD/AWD? Porsche?

It seems like that even though he missed the apex by a furlong, overrunning the curb shouldn't have been such a big issue (ie steer, gas out of it) - there was plenty of road ahead.

Looks to me like it wasnt caused by dropping 2 wheels off, but more because he was going a little too fast (because of missing the apex), then lifted right as the car became unweighted at the top of the crest. around he goes.

I can't open the link (something wrong with my computer). I always felt that Sears was a very technical track. There are a lot of chained turns where if you screw up on one turn, you're really screwed on the next.

Laguna on the other hand, you have a lot of room between most of the turns so you have time to make corrections before the next turn.

If you knock off everything starting with the "V" in video, in that url, and go to the video archive it says, 'F360.' It also says he drops 2 wheels and lifts... If you listen to the video you can hear clearly when he gets off the gas... And the dropped cardboard box sound as he hits the foam... seems they know just exactly where to put that stuff.

I love the sound of the engine on the in-car videos from the RX-7!

That's right. The proper way to do it would have been like this: http://www.themricenter.com/jamz/spins.mpg
