Looks more like the mile high club to me ...look at all that air, 4 wheels clean off the deck...one assume both Riku and car are fine? If not a little shaken and not deterred!

car seems fine, did another sesion each after the "incident", although he is now going a lot slower after the reality check! Have slight damage to the diffuser and I have the suspension off now for checking/ cleaning. It was one of those moments that it would have been better to let the car spin than try and catch it and head off in the opposite direction.
Hopefully all set for first sprint at Rockingham on the 16th March.

Been there but with limited experience or natural reaction will always try to save it ! At least in a GTA when it goes you don't have much of an option lol it usually goes round at a very rapid rate of knots!!

Glad to hear all is ok ;-)
