OOPS Nearly crashed the MG

Post by mgbloke » Tue Jun 05, 2012 9:29 am

First video with front and rear Gopro cameras.
It doesnt look it but max speed on this track is top side of 130mph.
Towards the end about 3min 30 secs in I lose the back end going into Tower corner. Tower corner has virtually no run off on the outside with just a few yards of grass and then armco. Rather than try and catch it and risk a tank slapper I let the back go right round just missing the marshall post.



Cheers

Mark

Is it really necessary to have such a solid looking object as that marshall point quite so close to the track? :? :?
Best regards

Impressive stuff, you were seriously motoring around that circuit. Good Work.
