You guys are saying let the M3 recuperate from his mistake...The M3 has already lost traction and at the point of impact, had the EVO not been there the M3 would have spun off the track. The M3 driver, by braking right in the middle of a turn, had no chance to recover from an impending spin. You can see it clearly in the video that prior to the EVO trying to make the best of the situation, the guy in the driver's seat in the M3 wasn't driving. He was merely a passenger.

That wasn't an attempt at correcting his line. He had braked in the middle of the turn, the weight had shifted enough where the rear wheel no longer has any traction, and the pitch of the car is already rotating above the center of mass PAST the maximum slip angle.
The hell I don't! LISTEN, KID! I've been hearing that crap ever since I was at UCLA. I'm out there busting my buns every night! Tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes!
