Here the driver actually stayed on the throttle pretty much until he's loosing control.. Lesson learned the hard way I guess.

Also perhaps I am wrong but I always thought racing regulations called for water only rather than super slippery coolant?
Exactly...be aware! I was behind a car that left their fuel cap off. So as I was closing in for the pass I saw fuel spewing out of his fuel filler and being an old E36 M3...gas door was broken and flapping around. I could have went for the pass but I don't think fuel being sucked in through the intake and hot radiator would have been a great thing.
