Default puder stuffs hardcore

well it wasn't my boat. But it did happen racing.

THANK GOD the safety crew up at Watkins Glen puts out tons fo absorption material. I looped in the boot running about 70-80 and impacted the retainer wall adn impact material. I'm basically totally fine. Sore as hell, a few bruises, severly damaged ego and a really really sore wallet. Considering the wreck the damage isn't too bad. Totally fixxable. The way i spun/hit and the impact material A. prevented major structural damage to the car and B. let me walk away.

attached is a pic of me in the pits after taking crap from all my racing buddies.

Hey Puder, can you spell EXPENSIVE??? Sorry, couldn't resist!

Nice clean crash. I've been doing the Glen for years with PCA. I've seen some pretty good crashes out there. I lost it once coming out of the heel of the boot. Got lucky and just missed doing major damage. Sure makes you rethink things after visiting the wall, doesn't it? Oh well, wanna play... gotta pay!

BTW, your car is a very easy fix. Your lucky it hit so flush on the side. Once you starting hitting things at an angle **** gets damaged quickly.

Puder, is Watkin's Glen a road racing course? Are you part of a 'league' or just out on occassion for a little impromptu racing? Sounds cool as hell.
