CSCS - Car Rolls Over...Due to Apex? Wha?!

I don't understand how this car rolled over yesterday on the track at the CSCS event...but it's pretty odd...was it too hard a turn and hit the Apex?? something to do with the pylon? Pylon vs Car...Pylon wins?!?! More experienced track drivers please chime in

I can't see the video due to a very intrusive work firewall, but clearly a wizard did it!

Seems the wheels locked up and physics took over






Chatting with a buddy at work this is what he said...

my guess is the guy probably trail braked and the rear kicked out more than expected. or he turned in way too early. the left front wheel hit the beginning of the curb, and that's what sent him over.

He just caught an edge into the curb... that coupled with the velocity, angle and the weight & momentum transfer could do this.

yeah this was nuts! Also, the track has seen better days. if you look closely the tarmac is all messed up. Not saying he didn't catch the edge of the curb....but the shitty track conditions def play a factor as well

Oh I know, I was there for that. Kind of a freak thing to happen when you look at it.

Turns out the guy driving that car was the owners brothers friend. The owner was on Vacation.

correct. they were testing the car and well it hit the hay bail and flipped. if it wasn't for the hay it would've survived. But i mean, could've/would've/should've, its the past now.
