Yikes. The Ring crash is a classic case of lift throttle oversteer. As soon as he got his foot out of the gas, the back end came around.

Happy sad for sure....is it my imgination or is or is the rally driver actually lifting to rotate the car on corner exits? Anyway this guy looks good to me

Not being a 911 driver....how do you guys lift to slow in mid corner if there are obstacles. I think the ring driver lost a few hundred rpm and was ejected....or could be brakes as well

....lift and counter steer simultaneously?

Ring driver was over his head and ran out of talent. $$$ Cha-ching! The Porsche most likely to be stuffed into a guard rail or driven onto it's roof... GT3.

Jaykay- lift + handbrake is the rally cornering method.
