Renault 5 in cornering catastrophe

This showcases exactly what can go wrong with these high-powered hatches on the racetrack. 

The first time around he almost makes it, but gets quite literally turned around in the heat of the moment. That could happen to anyone. The second time the attempt is just embarrassing. It cant be nice staring at a barrier that leads only to the abyss, but this driver clearly isn't having any of that. Not spectacular but quite funny nonetheless, and a reminder that it does take plenty of skill to make these cars go as fast as they can in difficult conditions.
