I've heard people wiping out on the track around where I live and totaling expensive cars too.

But yeah, going all out like that on a difficult track is asking for trouble

Yeah, there's a reason half the video is that one sneaky turn, but you have to admit some of those mistakes look like they set someone with a learners permit loose on the track.

As I watched, I was wondering just how many laps in each session they got on it because you usually have to learn the track for at least a couple of laps before trying to actually go near the speed limit of any corner.

It's almost as if some of them are trying to go to the limit in a single go, which would be suicide.

No animals were harmed in the making of this film, but sadly, plenty of beautiful cars were demolished. Viewer's discretion is advised.

Notice some "go faster stripes" and "go faster decals" on some...

Maybe they increase chances of a crash

They were not even going all that fast. The comments talked about them getting wind in their skirts or something.

Anyway. Nice Grand Turismo video.

exactly my point. i once had a 79 cellica, it was awesome, but even that was beyond my skill set, and i sold it. i stick to FWD or AWD these days. i think the problem is these guys have no track time, they dont know how the car handles. and i guess when you got 500 hp, you never really get the chance to get good.
more money than brains.
that said, id love to take my yaris on that track.

Much of it most probably has to do with a bad setup in a previous turn, leading to losing control in a subsequent one. A lot of times that happens with not breaking enough, taking a bad line, or both. There's this one car that just passed a Corvette without even preparing for the next turn, where it wiped out... When speeding up in a place where slowing down gets through a turn, that's the start of "off roading"...

The two big ones around me (Leguna Seca and Sonoma) have too much elevation change... I'll need an instructor plus an orange "I'm slow" sticker.

Either that or get a used dinker car like you've said. I don't want to go off roading in my G37.
