The instructor flipped the Z06 during the first lap of the day, when he was supposed to be getting a feel for the car to better instruct the car's owner. The instructor gassed it too much, before the PSCs had any heat (it was a cold and blustery day). The car did roll. Fortunately the car had a full cage and no one was hurt.

There has been a significant off with big $ damage just about every time I've been to RA for an event with the BMWCCA. The first time I was there, a guy with a new Elise lost it in the kink, totalling his car. Another time, a dude with a E30 M3 went into the wall.

RA is no joke, and the Windy City chapter (my home chapter) used to go there in April when rain and cold conditions are common.

I haven't been there for a DE since I got the RSA. If I go back, it will be with track insurance.
