I thought it loooked familiar. I ran Thunderhill in reverse earlier this year but since I was on street tires, couldn't carry enough speed to get any wheels off. I did manage to break traction and hit the rev limiter several times though...

This guy tried the same thing in a GT500, with a much worse outcome:

Next time you come up, drop Paul or myself a p.m., I'd love to see your car, or maybe we could all do a track day together! Paul and I live very close to the track and love to run our Fds at HPDE's.

Damn, I'll bet he thought he was in an RX-7 with hoosiers on it. Guess he wasn't.

If had had been thinking about what was happening, he would have turned his wheels back to counteract the spin and go off the track straight, even if it is backwards.

Sideways + dirt = roll

I saw that car come in on the hook, scary, no roll-over protection.

I usually run NASA Time Trials, it would be great to have a couple more FDs out there!! A track day all to ourselves sounds pretty cool though

Actually, he eats it in turn 9 not 5, scary stuff. Kinda reminds me of my rollover at Sears.

Gotta give the guy credit, I never had the ***** to post my crash vid on the 'net.

Thanks for the photo props, I'll pass it on

I think Matt, AKA "rotoober" knew it was 9 not 5 as well. Just making a funny I suppose I got what he meant, don't think it was viscous. I am just glad the dude is O.K. I was on pre-grid when they brought him in, not what you want to see right before going out to lay one down.

Is Norm your "Pop" or some other relation?

Good thing he taped it.... Sorry couldn't resist.

In the vid it is amazing how quickly that thing bites in the sand. I am glad we have grass up here to slide on to a safe stop.

Holy crap that looks dangerous! So you're cresting a hill and getting air in the middle of a corner? I'm surprised they'll let people run like that, that's gotta contribute to a lot more accidents there than anywhere else on track. I bet the insurance company for the sanctionning body would have a bird if they saw that.

Sorry, not trying to be mean, trying to make a funny. Thunder Hill is a great track with a lot of run off room almost everywhere, but if you get way out of shape, anything can happen. I don't even think the poor guy had got plates on the car.

BTW, those are some awsome photos of you two launching in the air! If it was me, those would be blown up and be hanging on my office wall for all to see.

Actually, I have never seen an incident in turn 5, air or no air. I suppose you have a bit of a point, but I think it's one of those things that looks worse than it is

Problem with Head-On-Photos is, they take so many awesome pics., I would go broke if I blew them all up

Just saw the vid and photo-album of that poor guy in the Mustang - do we know what happened to him? Was he towed out to a country road and wrote on the police report he was trying to avoid a deer?

Yeah, 5 was totally safe. I'll try to post some in car vid of it going over the hill, it's really not that big of a deal. Just keep your wheels straight.

Yeah Norm's my pop. He drags my car out for me whenever I run with NASA.

Ok Gadd, we live so close to this track, I've got the perfect place to work on/store one, we really NEED to get a dedicated track car! We'll sponser it thru our business's and write off the expense.
