i tihnk it was the fact she was a woman driver...


ok bad joke, was probabley due to the nearside wheels losing speed and the off side with the weight transfer making the car go over.

also it looks like she was trying to oversteer at speed but couldn't quite get it.

look at the croner before she crashed, there is a load of cone s on the road for some reason, i think this made her take the wrong line in to the corner and thus made her roll, i think the track officials are to blame for this one.

I think she has just carried to much speed into the corner and understeer has caught her out. By the time shes got enough traction to get sideways she in the gravel where the car digs on an rolls.

Pretty lucky to walk away, there where a few big impacts while that was rolling!

Looking at the vid again, I think the cones are a makeshift chiccane (Or where earlier in the session) to slow cars down for the pit exit - I dont think thay had anythign to do with the accident... whistle

She also pulls a very close move on the Lotus going in to a corner, that with her general driving style would prolly have got her kicked off a UK trackday due to what inevitably happened, happening.

Isn't a chicane asking for trouble though! It's like a red rag with people racing along trying to get in there first. Pretty stupid of the french if thats the case

the lotus overtake wasnt that risky i dont reckon, she passed up a take a corner earlier

seems to be skilled enough but even the best make mistakes.... especially the best sometimes, when they get cocky

I was seeing what could be done in ice in the Land Rover, and once 4x4 goes, it just lets go and not much can be done to get it back!!
