You have to screw up pretty bad to find a wall at Winton, it's got pretty good run off in most spots.

Well that's the thing, you can see in the second pic how far he had to drive off the track.

Sorry to post this car here but this is from when we were at Winton last:

Over on the right you can see some wheelie bins and the building, that's the building in this:

And as you can see in the pic with the Mustang, that's a pretty long way.

The corner is the "Motorsport News Esses" (refer to http://www.wintonmotorraceway.com.au/home/images/stories/map%20with%20corner%20namesweb.pdf )

And to make it around the first part of it, you have usually washed off a lot of speed, so honestly, I don't really know how the car could have ended up where it did. It looks like it went around the first part of the corner, and then went straight ignoring that there was a righthander to go around as well.

Someone who knows the track better, and knows more of racing than I do will probably be able to explain more, but I remember that corner as a pretty nice one, really getting on the power, and I've never seen anyone (personally) go off there.

Although he could have picked up some oil before the start of the esses that my mate left behind when a conrod went through his sump last year...

Yeah I know, I don't know why we let that car on the track...

And I would have never posted a pic except it helped show the track.

Maybe I should photoshop it out.....
