I got black flagged for this one because they thought I was intentionally drifting. In reality I was just keeping the car pointed in the right direction...in style.

You have to grab the A pillar to avoid getting the black flag

I found this on the Z4 board, and it deserves to be republished. Guy looses brakes on back end of a straight and "saves" the car by sliding through an open gate. Amazing save and a little bit of luck. Action starts at 45 sec in.

Not quite as awesome as the last one. But here I'm taking a pass from Thundermoose and then trying to keep him at bay.

Not a save per se, but I believe this video precedes yours. I think we show up at the 1:45 mark.

Oh yeah, that when I got the right handed point by from the Porsche. I had to pause and laugh.

A friend of mine lost it very similar to you on the next turn and ended up not getting as lucky as you and backed it into the wall right under the bridge!

Nice save!

From NJMP Lightning last summer. I early-apexed an over-the-hill right-hander, sending me a bit wide on track-out. My left front tire clipped the edge of the track curbing where it steps up, unsettling the car and shooting me to the right toward the inside wall. I luckily avoided the tires before spinning back onto the track. Silliness is at 1:05.

You guys threaded right down the middle between the two P-cars. Was it open passing, or did you get two simultaneous point-bys to the inside? A little dicey.
