Nice job with the driving in the wet Shawn ... up to the crash.

It looks to me that on the second downshift the car broke loose, maybe not enough throttle blip, the rear wheel slowed down too much when you let the clutch out and the slide started.
If the rear wheels are not moving at the speed you are traveling because of gear change, it is very difficult to catch. Once the slide starts, the wheels just dont get up to the propper speed in slippery conditions and off you go.

Glad you both are okay.

Congratulation on the wins ... next year I will be there for sure.
