probably would of been fine if he didn't have opened the chute imo the wind was blowing too hard that day and as aerodynamic as the car is he probably would of been fine... but this isn't the first time he has spunned out of control in that car..

I hear it works wonders and doesnt require resetting after every stop like a chute.
The brakes worked fine, the problem was after a hard accel the car got light when lifting. If you watch the videos from last year he was spinning slowing. Stopping from 250mph in a half mile is tougher than you guys think. Even the 250+ BUSA's have gone off the end of the runway...

The stock car has PLENTY of brake for that speed especially for one stop.

I like the earlier video fo the driver trying to "outsmart" the traction control and looping it...

Brilliant...
Was it smart, probably not but when the guy makes what he does....he can do whatever he wants with his cars and money....I'm pretty sure he's earned it.

If you've driven a high hp car you would understand the traction control only works at stock power levels. When the car is making over 4X the power, traction control does nothing but shut the car off. It made 1900whp+ for those that thinks it's SO easy to drive...

Different car and driver. Richard is the Orange RWD E-gear Superleggero-TT (stripe and wing) that crashed. IMG 3841 UGR Twin Turbo Gallardo


Jonah has the other Orange LP560-4 AWD manual (1 of 3 in the country) that spun at the line. He also owns the other Black Gallardo-TT...

That track needs another 1/2 mile of brakeing area for those speeds, I,m sure it was the winds also, Bill Werner said he was almost dragging a knee going straight at those speeds

...
Oh, I know it isn't easy... I also know if you are going to spend that kind of coin on HP you need to spend equal amounts on keeping it on the ground and pointed in the right direction....

Just saying...

(BTW, I COMPLETELY agree it's his money and he can do with it as he wishes, It's a pain when his money and lack of spending it wisely costs
other people time cleaning up when other people could have been making
passes...)

I agree, only having a 1/2 mile shut down area isn't enough.
