Default Gladiator Hook and Ejection

This is nuts. I don't know if it has been posted before, but this is the first time I have came across it:

Welcome to F2, and the demise of the class. Bet a healthy portion of the F2 boats spunout at one point or another. I remember the Donzi F2-22 not just hooked but rolled as well.

Why is that? Driver error? It seemed that the boat was out of the turn, straightening out, and doing fine, then BAM! Crazy...
