Strangely enough this is the same corner I spun in just a few weeks ago, Im glad the same thing that happened here did not happen to me. Both driver and passenger walked away from this crash (thank god). For those who have not been lucky enough to run cresson, this corner (richochet) is both off camber and down hill, its a nasty one.

Look on the opposite side of the track to see the flipping:

WOW :eek: :eek: :eek:

I would definately have had to change my shorts if I were in that car. Great to hear that both people walked away from the roll/flip/spin/crash. Makes me rethink suspension mods and go for SAFETY!!!

Makes me think about slowing down!

OK, I'm done thinking about it.

It would be interesting to know if the car had a roll-bar...otherwise, it's a real testament to the design...
