Has that Evo driver ever heard of opposite lock?! Can't believe how easily he keeps losing it!

Poor mk2 Golf - looks like a write off to me.

Dad hired Goodwood many years ago (with mates) with his 928. A mate brought his 328GTS - he spun it (didn't hit anything), it bent the chassis and that was it - a write off!!

Auch, poor bugger! That Golf went from a few new panels to a write off.

Track looked pretty damp, but I still can't believe how much the Evos were spinning. Everyone seemed to be on the power too early, and just letting it spin out to the inside.

It is easy to spoil oil? Probably harder than spilling it...

As Woll says there must have been something on the track? Those Evo's are 4wd and seemed to lose the back end quite easily and it didn't look like they were coming in to hot and back off the power.

Real shame for the guys in the golf and fiesta. Hope they were both okay.

Was thinking of buying an Mk2 Fiesta XR2 for a bit of fun, but seeing that impact reminds me how fragile they are!

poor lads...looks like write off...

definitely, something tricky on this bit of track....evos can't be losing it like that!....unless the guys were amateurs....actually,even your average joe can drive an evo fast....
