Autocrossing your Corvette is great way to have some fun in your car in a safe and controlled environment. Most courses are laid out to keep speeds down and drivers rely on technique to complete the course. But just because speeds are lower than other track events doesn’t mean that one wrong move can come back to bite you as one Corvette driver found out at the Speed Ventures autocross event.
According to the YouTube post, the driver was making his first run since returning from a break. With cold tires and a cold track, the back end of the Corvette got loose and spun the sports car around through some cones. The slow speed spin-out ended with a gut-wrenching crash into a curb that lifted the entire Corvette off its wheels and dropped it heavily back on the track.
The YouTube post again says the driver was pretty shaken after the crash but walked away unhurt. Too bad that can’t be said about the Arctic White C6 Corvette which looks to have sustained major damage to the passenger side wheels and suspension.
