A video taken at one of my training days. The last lap of the day. Not the best example of fluid driving as, in my defence, the surface is questionable at best and I only had tread on my nearside tyres thanks to a day of driving mostly sideways.

Just an extension of the 'oversteer' thread to show you what happens when the tail breaks away at different speeds on different surfaces and how quick you need to be sometimes to catch it. The video ends with happens when you get it wrong (not that I ever do *cough*).

Sorry for the REM soundtrack but we were testing the DVD recording equipment and forgot to set it up to record the engine noise and screeching tyres :)

Cheers for the Vid.
You kinda need the tyre song soundtrack since it is used by the driver to gauge the type and severy of slip, and to modify his responses.

Wish I had somewhere to hoon around without fear of arrest:)
