Be responsible, don't treat it as a race track, and you're fine.not surprised. happens literally all the time. back when I was big into Z's in the mid 00's it happened every year we went up there. now with the GTRs I know of like 4 bad incidents up there. thats why i quit going as much like I used to. for me its a been there done that type thing where its not worth it anymore to risk someone speeding meeting me the other way on a curve up there on a crowded event weekend
I like how you define the term "freak accident." So true. Anyways here's the dragon being done right. I'm never pushing the car 10/10 but certainly having fun on the road.I know this guy "personally" as well, David Brown from Charleston right? He tried to sell me a bunch of his ragged out used '09 GTR parts for almost full price before he traded it in plus 2 other cars for the 2017 one thats toasted now. I hate to see this happen and I'm glad he is ok. He is lucky he hit a tree and didnt lose his life.
I've been racing for years and I know this area very well as I've primarily raced 1000cc+ bikes on it. Cars go off the side on a day to day basis and the road will eat up unexperienced drivers for lunch. A freak accident is a tree falling in front of you or an animal running across the road and having to avoid the obstacle at the last given second. A freak accident is not trying to show off for the cameras and going WOT coming out of a turn. Every road has debris on it and I'm sure the police report will denote what was found.
The only time you'll see the rear of a stock GTR kick out like that is when your VDC is off. Which would be the dumbest thing to do on a road like this unless if you are a professional driver.
awesome video !Be responsible, don't treat it as a race track, and you're fine.
Don't push the car 100% or 100% to your comfort level. Make sure you have good sight lines ahead before you push a corner and things can be fun. I took mine on the dragon last year and it was a blast. 2,500 mile road trip.
