In real road stuff I've had a couple but nothing that resulted in maiming, death or other inconveniences.

on track I still think my high speed roll was the best Wink

yeh track stuff counts

Jenson the highspeed roll sounds impressive can we hear the full story?

I Spun my car out today at about 30-40mph. 180 degrees into the opposite lane. I came into the corner a lil too fast the car understeered, hit some mud and it slung the back end round and threw me across the road... I just thank god there was nothin coming the other way and that i had nobody with me...

I have pretty much had nothing in the last five years of driving. A few minor moments when I've braked too late and nearly ran into a car or something.

Only one I can think of was coming home from work one night, from another town, was doing a speed that might be considered as unsafe. It had been hail and rain shortly before, but the road was clear. A car joined from a slip road ahead into the left lane, and I had moved into the right lane to let it join and pass. But the car moved straight across into the right hand side in front of me for no apparent reason - there was no one else around us - and I slammed on the brakes.

My Astra had no ABS, so locked up but kept straight. I was absolutely raging, then I saw why they had done it. Ahead of us, there was a kinda long S-bend, and a car had spun off the road into a sign, due to the road being covered in hail. Another car was reversing back up the left lane, obviously having just witnessed it.

If I had hit that bit of road doing the speed I was doing, I might have had a considerable accident. The guy that pulled right in front of me did me a huge favour by slowing me down.

Funny thing, life...

A scary moment for me was in the back seat.. my grandad fell asleep behind the wheel in his old Corsa SXI on one of those Coastal roads on the west coast, he luckily awoke in time for a tight left hander with only a few bollards to protect the car from falling into a revene with trees and all, the rumbly bits before the corner woke him up, and he said afterwards ''those strips before the corners are handy..''

My mate fell asleep on the M1 one day. We'd all fallen to sleep in the car at the same time and drifted towards the barriers. Luckily they'd just put those concrete bollards up (not the grass with the metal barriers, the tarmac'd ones with the concrete pillars) We were about a few inch away from the concrete wall when we all woke up, lol. If it had been the grass we would have been [Censored], was rush hour as well so the road was really busy.

Hope it never happens again! We had to pull off the next junct to all calm down, haha.

on the track the worst thing that has happened was... This guy's kart spun around and flew through a chicane and collected another kart causing pile up that i was involved in. I flew by the intial incedent and a kart rolled in front of me and hit the back of my kart spinning me off into the woods and finally righ into a ditch, before rolling over.

In my mustang i was on I-95 and i was heading to daytona beach, an Impreza flew by me and lost control while it was raining and slid off the road into a light pole and got split in half...i pulled off the road and called for emergency vehicles. Never found out if the guy survived, when i checked on him he wasnt moving.

oh dear. here we go!!

I've been woken up by a roundabout about in VW Golf. Going straight over a roundabout at around 35 wakes you up with a massive shock and a strong adrenaline rush.

Also been woken up in a work Astra estate as my girlfriend at the time helped me drive from Torquay one early Monday morning to a job in Norwich. She was driving and woke me up as she screamed VERY loudly only to find we were doing 80 odd over a curb at the beginning of a laybuy!!! She got confused a picked the wrong way ;O( Both driver side tyres blew and both the wheels had huge dents in them!! I had to grab the steering and shout "KEEP ACCELERATING" as I allpied the handbrake gradually as I got her to ease off the accelerator when back on the motorway. I feared she would just decelerate rapidly and cause a roll!! Another adrenaline rush that one!!!

Had a Audi Quattro turbo, blew up the turbo when doing 140 odd on the motorway!!! All i could see in my rear view was black smoke, getting to the hard shoulder without being able to see if anyone was coming up or already there was nerve racking.

In the Audi Quattro, when I was getting used to it at first, i pulled out to overtake a Volvo estate on a very short bit of road between bends with oncoming traffic just appearing, only to learn very quickly what turbo lag was!!! Then all of a sudden the turbo kicked in and only just got me passed. I rememeber the angry face of the oncoming chap to this day, and the noise his tyres made!!

Being chased!! I have two of those to tell!! Its approx 4am, driving back from a rave, in the work Astra estate again, many years ago. Driving like a nutter as i used to, when I caught up two cars both 4 four up with chaps. They started racing me and I can only assume from the look of them and the way they treated these cars that they were nicked. Suffice to say I started to poo myself, especially when one got in front and tried to back me into the other!! Fortunately, i knew the area and hung a sharp left just as they were bringing me to a halt. I bolted down this narrow country lane to this humpback single lane bridge, straight through the red light and took off!! Thank god they didnt follow ;O)

Other chase, a guy who used to be quite handy at karate thought I was poking his misses. I wasn't but wasn't going to wait around and explain as he ran at me in a carpark we'd gathered at!! Resulting chase through country lanes scared the hell out of me. It was another lights off, find a junction, hide praying he goes passed. Phew, he did. Pushed the Escort Mk111 to within an inch of its life that night.

Had the gear stick come out in my hand and a steering wheel come off too!!! both not pleasant.

In my first fiesta, a 950cc speed demon!! lol. I went hacking down a steep hill towards a hairpin corner named devils elbow. My mate in the car didnt know there was a dirt track beyond as there is a sharp drop behind the corner the get to it. I decided to scared him and slowed to 30 then didnt brake!!! he actually screamed out loud, hands thrust in front, legs pressed out straight as we went straight off the corner. lol. only problem was, I scared the hell out of myself. Wasn't expecting to see only sky for a while, then only the dirt track coming at us!! bottomed out, exhaust ripped off, car chassis bent!! ouch that hurt. He's not a mate anymore.

many many more, these jst sprang to mind reading yours guys. Thanks, made me giggle ;O)

He hee, sorry guys, just remembered rolling my Mk11 Escort on a country lane, tight bend over bump, front wheels went light, I went straight into a gate post and rolled onto passenger side and skidded down the road. First time you roll a car undoing the seat belt shocks you up as you plunge to the ground!! Just dont expect it first time! lol ;o( Sold the Mk11 to a mate but it still got me back. He was driving on the motorway, I was in the passenger seat, another mate sat in the back leaning forward chatting so head in the middle. doing 90ish, the windscreen shattered and blew in on us. When we all opened our eyes and slowed down we couldnt believe we all didn't have class stuck in our faces. The roll had obviously weakened it ;O(

Dang, im going to try at top though. At a divisional at Summit point in West Virginia, there was some hard racing going on at the track, it has the longest straight of any track we run, you routinely hit 80mph (with a 4 stroke) at the end of the straight, some guys brakes failed and he went sailing in to the hay bails, the front of his kart was ripped off. he had to get a whole new kart
