thank god for that
Again the things that offroading teached you is beyond limits.
if not for that stunt, id definitely clock the fasted time, and for sure tejas would have also driven with more ease and confidence and proved competition to me
sorry doc,'
next time we shall go better prepared

Again it was a brilliant experience, the whole autocross feel, and shall definitely do it again,

Turning away from the direction of the skid = reflex

Turning into the direction of the skid = presence of mind

Being unhurt and in one piece = reflex + presence of mind + luck
