Track days are fun, whether you’re just starting out with a Civic or semi-pro with a turbocharged Porsche. But high speed combined with untrained pilots and potential mechanical breakdowns or unpredictable track conditions is an explosive mixture. Here’s why.
The images on board at the top of this article take us to a day on the track in Ohio where some Porsche drivers are trying to improve their corners and achieve better times. At one point, around 0: 24 minutes, what appears to be a white Porsche Cayman GT4 suddenly appears at one of the corners in reverse at very high speed. The description of the video tells us more.
“Coolant spilled on the track, causing a slippery track, I had to get out of the“ line ”to slow down. The GT4 behind me started to spin as he applied the brakes making me back up inside. The blue Porsche that we passed in a straight line also turned. Fortunately, nobody was hurt!!”
Another video (attached just below) shows the Cayman cabin accident and it’s scary. The good news is that no one was injured, but we doubt the GT4 will be ready for the track anytime soon.
“Hit the coolant in the braking area. Fortunately, the safety equipment worked and I walked away without any serious injuries, ”said the driver in the video description.
What is the moral of the story? When you’re on the right track, be patient and always think twice before waiting another second to brake. It’s not worth the shot.
