    Sadly this all comes down to driving to fast in the wrong conditions or less talented Driver

    I, in my driving career have not always got everything right and messed up, but from an older guys experience, respect is needed with the tools you drive! Even last weekend on an early morning run I had a slight moment were I thought i Pushed it a fraction too far, but the tires stuck and it was a phew moment! Stay safe out there folks, fast cars are to be respected and know your talents!

    I've driven the Tail many rimes over the years and it is a blast. Unfortunately, there are too many people trying to set personal best times and driving beyond their skill level. That road is best enjoyed at 6/10's.

    Absolutely agree. And to go along with that, so many people go in groups - and while someone might be driving at 5/10's of their skill level, the person following is driving at 9/10's of their skill level trying to keep up.

    I watched a friend that had zero racing/track day/autocross experience absolutely roast their brakes while trying to keep up with another friend who is an inductee of the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame. He was lucky to drive away only needing new pads/rotors/fluid.
