Got owned by a supra and performed a 720 flat spin!!

Ok so my first time at the Manfield Race track was when I was 18, I had only had my FC 13b Turbo for a little while. Anyway me and some mates decided to go to an open day at the track to have a play and see what its like as it was my first time ever on a track and thought I could be the next Michael Schumacher.
I met up with a friend of mine at the track who had come up with a guy in this 96 supra (or thereabouts) and he asked if he could ride with me in the FC. So we get on the track and I nanna around for the first three laps to get used to it all with everyone passing me (ha ha very funny) so for the last 2 laps I start pushing it a bit more and get my confidence up and I had fun and was no longer a track virgin. We came off the track and I checked over my car to make sure it was all running sweet, nothing too hot etc and lined up for the next round. I noticed this Supra a couple of cars in front, looked pretty normal, nothing too flash so to me it just looked like any other supra. My mate then told me that it was his mates car and to watch out for it as it was heavily modified and very quick, so I stepped in to Schumacher mode and entered the track again. I took the first lap easy again but then opened up the throttle and I was having the time of my life! I went around the track again twice and noticed this supra coming up behind, told my mate and he said to be carefull, he will push me to my limits (but I was Schumacher!!!) and he came up quick. He sat right on my *** for a few corners so I started to push myself and the car real hard and he just kept pushing me. We came up to the back sweeper that leads onto the back straight and I pushed it even harder. A little too much it turns out, as I got 2/3'ds out of the corner I was going real fast and felt the rear act kinda funny, all of a sudden I see this supra dart out from behind me and i am ******* sideways!! I must have been doing at least 130-150k's easy and she stepped out on me. What could I do I was 18, had a fast car and didnt know how to get out of the situation and my car was going around in circles. At this point I think the car went on the grass and I let go of the wheel and hoped for the best. The car finally stopped on the grass and I was shaking like hell, my mate on the other hand almost pissed himself laughing. I had had enough that day, so I went back to the pits and was very quiet for the rest of the afternoon!

I think it took me a few months to get back on the track again but I had a new fire breathing engine, more boost and 18" wheels and tires. That day was alot more fun!!

Then there was the day I was using my FD to pull out 4wd tow vehicles that got stuck in the mud while pulling out cars, oh and the other time i had to tow a V8 T-bucket with my FD for 30kms (sorry no pics ).
