Chevrolet Corvette Drifts into Curb during Autocross

We recommend autocross events because they allow you to learn car control in a way that would be suicidal on public roads. Playing with your car brings you skills that can prove vital when you have to avoid an accident.
And yes, you do have a lot of fun while doing this. Usually, there’s no way of getting yourself into trouble, as the cones are placed in such a way that your speed is kept down and you have plenty of space to fix your errors. However, there will always be exceptions, as shown by the adjacent video.

The footage shows us a Corvette that ends us on two wheels. How did the car get into that situation? Well, the driver spun off and violently hit (notice the lateral indicator light popping off?) a curb during a Speed Ventures autocross. According to the Youtube description of the video, the driver had just taken a break, so both the track and the ‘Vette’s tires were cold.

Watch the video and play with the pause button for some interestingly painful moments...
