There’s no worse feeling than losing control and just sitting back and watching yourself crash.
The following video comes to us from Canterbury, and won’t particularly improve the UK’s reputation for having lousy weather. It shows the driver of a Mazda RX-8 who is simply driving along the highway. He needs to change lanes, so he moves left and immediately loses control. It’s just water, but hydroplaning can be as bad as hitting ice if you’re going fast enough, and at about 85 mph he most certainly was.
You can hear pretty clearly that he knew full well he was about to crash, and it must have felt like an eternity just waiting for it to happen.
