Video of a guy crashing his car while weaving at a DE

Have you guys seen this video - looks like a DE in Germany. The driver is trying to get some heat into the tires on the warm-up lap and ends up in the wall, LMAO!!

I'm sure that's what he told the guys at the body shop.

I can't remember where I read it, but I think it was in one of Carroll Smith's books. The author stated that even with race tires, swerving back and forth was a complete waste of time, it just didn't generate enough friction to warm up the tires. With slicks or R-comps, it may serve some function as far as scrubbing the marbles off the tires after a caution. But other than that, it only serves two purposes: give drivers an outlet for their pent-up nervous energy, and wreck race cars.

It might not help a lot, but when you only have one parade lap before the green flag drops, the tires need to be ready and doing that generates more heat than just driving normally. Im talking about R-comps and slicks. When I see people doing this on street tires....

In that case hard acceleration and hard braking works best, sometimes I'll throw in some dorifto action on corner exit if there's space before the field groups up.

Wasn't saying much. Gf said he was basically saying he's so stupid, and repeated it a few times.

This I feel works best.
Scrubbing your tire like that dude just makes you look like an idiot, and he sure completed the act perfectly.

It's a friggin driving school for friggin street cars.

What's wrong with just taking it easy on the out lap and working up to speed on the first lap or two? Afraid the guy behind you is gonna beat you to the first corner and shrink your dick?

If any of my students had ever gotten sideways on the out lap, their tires would have plenty of time to cool off since they'd find their ass parked for the session, or possibly the entire day.

I was giving race advice for a racer, calm down.
