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
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!

Bonneville Salt Flats: Automotive heaven
We found a place where the automobile is king and speed is the one true
god. It's a piece of land shaped roughly like a frying pan—flat and
hot—bordered by mountains, and crusted in fine white granules of salt.
To get there, drive west for about an hour and a half from Salt Lake City,
Utah on the I-80 towards Reno. Drive past the vast pools of sulfur, where
there's no escaping the smell of rotten eggs. Take exit No.4 and keep going
until the road ends. You'll feel a bump as the wheels of your car drop off
the edge of the pavement and then start rolling across the Bonneville Salt
Welcome to gearhead heaven.
