At 93 seconds long, it's worth a minute and a half to see a dopey driver.

That sucks, but hopefully he learned something from this crash.

I've ridden sport bikes for almost 10 years and the one thing I've learned is to stay within my skill limits.

They should show this at PDE's showing the reason why you always complete most of your braking in a straight line.

Biggest problem here is know the road you are flying down...or off of in this case.

The g00b had no clue he was going off. Stoic throughout...

Damn that was worse than this kid! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZVrnd9V7sk

Why they treat the roads as a race track and cut the corners, drive on wrong sides of the line - takes all the fun out of the road, straightens them out! Just a way to see who is 'fastest' Good lessons learned by them.

Ouch. I instantly remembered the above vid with the kid hitting the rock... but this is much worse then that. Kid's M3 was probably salvaged... This one... not so much.

He's lucky he's alive.
This is driver error, 100%.

-Go on a road you're unfamiliar with? CHECK
-Be oblivious to the fact the car in front of you hit the brakes for about 2-3 seconds into that turn? CHECK
-Go wayyyy too fast into a turn that can easily lead to falling down a cliff? CHECK
-Understeer off the cliff? CHECK

Sure makes a case for side-curtain airbags.

I wonder what the guy in the lead car was thinking when he saw this in his rear view mirror (or didn't see it and was wondering where the hell he went when he did check).

----------

I wonder if these guys ever track their cars. It seems that a lot of people once they take their cars on the track dial it way back on the street (myself included).

From what I understand... It was an E92 M3 allegedly. Probably a new Kia Forte. LOL

-JThere's a longer version of this vid, and someone else mentioned that it was "a Miata" though I didn't actually see it.
