Not sure if anything he did after he got on the grass would've helped. There's not much grip, you're just there for the ride... Although steering right might've spun him the other way and away from the wall, can't tell.

He could've realized his had too much speed and point the steering wheel straight at the crest of the hill, that would've gotten him on the turtles, but saved him a spinout and the impact. I guess that before he'd typically carry way less speed through there, so that crest didn't have much effect and he just ignored it. Lesson learned.

And BigD, I disagree on that not being a skill related accident. Gotta read the road ahead of ya and realize what happens when you crest a hill. I think he was staring at that Viper coming up and lost track of everything else.

Wasn't that bad as I thought it would be Not much damage at all.. That could be easily fixed by any good body shop.

He wasn't going too fast for the turn, he just got scared of his speed going into it and lifted as he started turning. If he just stayed on it he would have been fine. He maybe could have still saved it if he got back on the gas the second he felt the back step out but that car doesn't look very forgiving and he was already scared at that point = brain lock. I'm not saying he definitely has the skill to correct the situation, I'm saying what happened doesn't necessarily show it. Like I said I've had that happen to me and I knew what to do - I just didn't do it.

Wow, thought that car was done, not too much damage at all, although it will cost a lot
