Yep. Almost had a student kill me this way. Actually, he turned in early from the middle of the track and when he ran out of track at exit, while I'm YELLING "STRAIGHT OFF, STRAIGHT OFF!" he tries to defeat the laws of physics and tries to pinch it back on the track. I'm yelling "BOTH FEET IN! BOTH FEET IN!" By the time he does this and we stop spinning, we're sliding sideways in the dirt at about 50-60mph and I'm waiting to catch a rut and flip. In a Miata with no rollbar and only the fiberglass roof. The only time in my life I've ever been afraid on a race track.
