Come on guys, that's what we are, guys: who like to show off now and then, like loud and fast cars and sometimes the big kid in us gets the better of us or the situation. Everyone has made a mistake by being an out of character tool or a show off, we make mistakes and learn from them. The only thing this guy is guilty of is that albeit he had a higher financial price to pay than most of us. I can safely say that any of us would do the same with a cheap a$$ E46 M3 if the child within wanted to hear that engine note and feel some speed. Yes, the weather conditions and having driving aids in the off position should have trigured in one's mind that planting your foot was a bad idea but there are rare occasions when even the most level headed man or woman acts dumb.

In the end it's only metal which can be replaced or forgotten, unlike a life so be thankful that this crash wasn't at 150mph and he lives to walk another day.


But he definitely had the TC/Manettino turned to 'not so safe on wet tarmac'.
