Wow, not a lot of runoff room in that section! Looks like a combo of dirty/dusty track, cold tires and too much throttle (from someone stilling learning about his car/his abilities[?])spun him around.

I think he needed about another 10-15 feet to complete the half spin. With a little more room he would have been fine and lived to take another lap with the knowledge of what he and his car are capable of.

Ha ha Austin, you found the golden nugget! The car was on a flatbed being hauled away at the end of my last session.....The car was DONE! We were wondering what happened to it. I'm guessing an inexperienced driver with too much car.

The bad habits are going to creep regardless because I don't have the time or money to do this every weekend. I was getting faster by the end of the day.

The bra worked great, thanks for the recommendation.
