Lotus Elise at NJ Motorsports Park Lightning racetrack September 2011
Full (long) video of session 3 of the Lotus Cup race at NJ Motorsports Park in September 2011. The clip ends with me crashing in turn 5, doing cosmetic damage to the front clam which has since been replaced. Turn 5 is at the crest of a hill, and unbeknownst to me I was running out of fuel. The fuel pickup went dry in the right hand turn, and the combination of mid-engined car + lift throttle oversteer + cresting a hill (getting air under the chassis) = sideways slide.
