    Wet Roads

    Gotta be careful on those wet roads!
    Kinda makes one sick to watch, but no major damage.

    I'm at 2.0 minutes. No major damage? That Jag FHC is certainly major damage. The Falcon....can't see the aftermath, but nose into the barrier, gotta be bad.

    wow. part of me admires the cojones to drive those kind of cars in that kind of weather though I am aware it likely has every bit as much to do with how deep their pockets are.

    It did fascinate me to see that we saw the same car spin out more than once - and then when they did go off the road, in every case the driver slammed the steering wheel like it was the car's fault.

    :rolleyes"

    I'd love to go out there for a few laps. Alone. In your car.

    I suspect you're right! No way in Hades would I subject my E-Type to that! (My pocket ain't that deep).
