Most instructors would probably just turn it back on the second they got in the car. I never asked if I could turn it off, it was my instructor that told me he thought I was ready to turn it off. That was on my 4th day out on the track. You want all the help you can get when you are learning how to drive on the track, its better to be a tad slower but much safer than faster but have not safety net.

that guy really was a dumba55.

i'm glad he's ok but more importantly happy he didn't hurt anyone else. which is exactly what idiots like this do.

And this is why you should track your car...

Wow wow wow
That's pretty crazy.

What I want to know is..."What kind of mount did he use for that camera?" That should be an advertisement for that equipment. I run the Contour camera and I am always afraid that its going to fall off and it'll be gone forever.

Glad he's ok, hope he learned a little something in the process. I never drive 10/10, but makes you wonder if he thought he was driving at "his" limit at the time. We might not think we are living that close to the edge (no pun) until we slip off.

Rest in Pieces ///M

Driving off the cliff?? Or off the road? I remember there was a kid who drove it off the road not off a cliff.

Hey guys, sorry I was late to this party! What'd I miss?

Oh look, IDIOT driver* cliff diving! - at least he proved that our Old e46 platform can still protect its occupants. RIP E46 M3!


*Found this thread from [e46 M3 drives off cliff]
Glad he & his passenger survived. Were they even given tickets for reckless endangerment (to themselves)?
They should wear T-shirts that says " ^ Luckiest Dumbazz - survived driving off cliff."
