Bonneville Salt Flats:
3rd gen Mazda RX-7 race car trying to beat the land speed record for a production vehicle.
At this speed, the tire patch that is touching the ground is LESS than the width of your index finger across each tire.
Furthermore each patch is encountering dust and small sand-like particles often. If you could keep the pace with this car and remain standing next to it, you could reach over and push it away from you sideways with little effort.
The announcer claims that an additional burst of oxygen in the fuel causes a loss of control, but in all likelyhood, the wind just changes ever so slightly, or began to blow (even lightly) and it was actually this that nudged the cars nose off by just enough to start a flat spin.
Yes, a flat spin, like an airplane goes into!
No rudder on this vehicle, so no control!

Bloodhound SSC 1000 mph rocket car, land speed record attempt
Equinox Graphics is proud to present the visualisation of Bloodhound SSC,
the trans-sonic rocket car aiming to smash the current land speed record
and raise it to a mind-bending 1000 mph (Mach 1.4). The car is being
designed and built in Britain, and Equinox Graphics has had the privilege
of working in association with the design team to bring the car to life.
The minute-long viral video was produced on time and at High Definition
(1920x1080, 25fps, full GI/radiosity) in just three weeks - including
rendering time on our computer cluster.
The animation has proved extremely popular with the world's media, and has
proved to be the ideal medium for engaging the public's imagination. It has
so far been featured on BBC news (TV and online), and on stations as
diverse as CNN and Al Jazeera.
