Nissan 350z eats a tree

During an autocross event, an amateur Nissan 350z driver took a corner too fast and nose plowed right into an embankment. This particular embankment wasn't your average hill. No, this one was setup like a ramp that launched directly into a sturdy tree. Guess what happened? Yep, the 350z hit the ramp and like clockwork slammed head on into a tree. The tree didn't care as it proudly stood with a deep voice and bellowed,"350z what? Muhahahah..."

Ok, well that's some fiction. The tree didn't really bellow out and speak, if it did this would be one awesome video. When I see wreck footage like this, I like to place myself in the driver's shoes just seconds before impact. What was he thinking? The last thing to go through his mind was probably "Oh, ****!" That's the typical expression prior to impact found within the racing community. The second favorite saying is that four letter word we all love and enjoy, but you won't find that word here. Sorry!

So what could have been done to prevent this from happening? First and foremost, this appears to be a total driver's failure. Had the driver possessed more track time with a lower horsepower vehicle, this wreck had might not occurred. If you are serious about racing, you start small. Every racer knows that you don't jump in a 500 horsepower rear-wheel drive vehicle for your first time on the track. That being said, not everyone requires practice and very few are naturally talented at racing and can go directly into high horsepower application. Unless you've got a bottomless wallet, it's wise to start small and work your way up. Ask this guy, he can tell you all about the infamous "newb wreck".
