yeah i have, i was there one time when a high end german car, not naming names or cars, had a front suspension arm fail and the car coming down the back straight missed the corner because of no brakes and went off the track at 190+KM/H, through the 45ish meters of soft sand and straight into the wall, whole front end was gone, air bags set off but the driver walked out with only a single scratch....... i got to go to the car and take photos of it after the incident.  :scared:

is that what your thinking as a "oh shit!" moment? also seen 2 cars spin at 200+ at the back straight, one of them because a rear tyre blew at high speed....

Yep, that's what I meant - post "oh shit!" :argh: and "BOOM!" :boom:  :scared: moments - the "oh dear"  :hissyfit: :banghead: :grumpy: (while looking at the car) post impact moment!!

Does the guy still race??

mid corner balance ace
can change direction very well
can exit a corner much earlier than the 3

the car pulled a 116.5 around mallala on its first outing

it needs a seat, harness and a bit more power and i reckon there is a 115.0 in it

it is a road car but balance is outstanding

gt3 is MUCH more honed and agile.

i was amazed the r8 was that good.

at one point, i had a good driver in a 7GT3 behind me (100m) for 4 laps and i didnt get overtaken nor was gap closed ....

great shots chris! i so want your lens :P

Cheers mate, your shots are starting to get better and better, good to hear you were pushing the boundaries and trying new things out there, thats what these days are perfect for!

Yeah, that lens is great, next up is a 300/400 2.8 prime hopefully :D

it that rear tyre creeping off rim?

Looks normal to me for something on the track pushing hard. You ever see the footage from one of the ford V8 supercars of the tyre and how much it moved around when going round Bathurst? Its amazing how much tyrewall flex those things have, and how close they seem to get to pulling off the rim
