Feeling dizzy?

Is it normal to feel dizzy after taking a 270 degree circular freeway on-ramp at high speeds? Or is it a sign that my body's too weak to ever fully enjoy motorsport?

your body's too weak,

or you're running racing slicks and a trick suspension

that's not a crazy amount of duration (270) and it's just a 3 series, not a serious sports car

were you on the way home from some crazy activity??

like working out too hard at the gym, or maybe you hadn't eaten

or heaven forbid hopefully not the bar!!

I'd be concerned about the dizzyness for health reasons, as the car doesn't create forces strong enough.

I hope this was a 1 time deal, and that you're OK

Nope, I was just playing around at 1am on a Sunday night on 580 around Richmond Marina, probably had low sugar level at the time. Anyways I was kind of bummed that my body was failing me, I doubt it's anything serious since I'm pretty healthy but I'll mention to the doc during check-up. Thanks for heads-up!

i normally take those circular ramps at 70-80mph if there are no other cars on them, and all i feel afterwards is a good adrenaline rush, but no sign of dizziness

This was s different ramp, a very small one, so turing 3/4 of a full circle in such a small radius I didn't know where to put my sight since there was just no stable object in my view (half of my view is pavement since the ramp is sloped), I think that contributed to much of why I was feeling dizzy. I was playing around again last night but avoided that ramp and everything was fine, doesn't look like I got dizzy from g-force since I could generate minor Gs from other corners I took, but who knows?
