^^ Exactly. I must be spinned 7 times on the surface. If it were to roll 7 times or rotate in the air 7 times then the graves must have got internet connections.

Maybe the threadstarter wanted to mention that is spinned 7 times.
Highly unprobable.

This guy has used phrases like "Hit the divider", "Somersaulted", etc. and he has also specified that he was alive just because he was wearing his seatbelt.

Just imagine a car hitting a divider at 190 kmph! You think all 4 wheels would be on tarmac? I don think so. Consider even the other scenario : Spinning. For a car of Civic's length to spin 7 times at 190 kmph, i am sure the car should have touched the 'divider' and if it had, it should sure have flipped. Some Physics, as they say.

Either he has a problem with english or he is making it up. Its for us to decide.

Arre re ? Thats a little harsh IMHO. I am a believer that anything is possible in an accident. We have seen subtle nudges result in death and a tipper unloading its stuff on Lineas and the entire family getting through unharmed.
I would like to give him the benefit of doubt and believe that his friend and he are plain jane damn lucky. It was not time up for you guys. Take it as another life and make corrections for some irresponsible behavior.
Thank God that the Police are not net savvy else they could got to your door by now . Cheers! No offences meant Brah!

Thank you all for your comments. I know it was a mistake and I have learnt quite a few things from it. I would like to say sorry to all my fellow members who were hurt after reading about the incident. I appreciate their comments and I have proven to be a very bad car enthusiast(although i was not even driving).
Last word: Please drive safely and do consider safety over anything else in the world.
Friends do forgive me and I would appreciate your advice in near future.

With all due respect to the all of the people who have posted above, including the OP, and please excuse me for being a newbie to the site, I fail to understand how we are responding to this situation.

The OP has clearly described an extremely dangerous,rash and illegal course of action employed by his friend in not the most favorable conditions, with no justification (emergency etc) seeking some 'thrills'/'experience'/'adrenaline-rush'.

The magnitude of how dangerous it was cannot be understated. Not only were the lives of the OP and his friend in grave danger, they also posed a severe risk to life and limb of everybody who happened to be on and around the entire stretch where they went about merrily laying rubber.

Lets not forget friends, safe and reliable car or not, outside the city road or not, speeds close to 200 kmph are atleast 3 times the maximum speed they should have been doing. I understand the enthusiast nature of the member fraternity, but this kind of behaviour cannot, or rather should not, be condoned. The responses I have seen so far seem to be of a rather indulgent dont-do-that-again-u've-learnt-your-lesson gentle rap on the knuckles kind

Having said that, the fact that the roof looks pristine and rear right window glass is intact seems to suggest 'something'

Was this real??

Are you genuinely alive?

A bang at 190 kms and you come out with neck sprains only is fairytale stuff.

Thank your lucky every one that you live another day.

Pls. drive carefully. 190 kmph on a wet road is madness. And ask your friend to do the same.

Hey,

Glad to hear no real damage was done.

Sure, mistakes might have been made in the past - but thanks to your good fortune there was no irreversible damage as a result.

If you spread the message of road safety, and even successfully convince 1 or 2 people to be safer and smarter, i think the net outcome will definitely be a positive one

I think the car must have done 360's seven times coz it sure doesn't look that it's rolled seven times.

Well, what happened is really sad, and going by the numerous questions that are being posted about the gravity of the incident/accident, it would be good if you could post a few bigger and clearer pictures of the car or the insurance estimate bill or the photographs the insurance surveyor has taken before sanctioning the repairs.
It will put to rest a lot of questions.

190kmph, wet road, 7 somersaults and you came out with only neck sprain-
Like 'Jamesbond' (he come without any sprain!). Anyway you are extremely Lucky.
And you need all these somersaults to learn a Lesson?
Drive safely!

I'm happy to see someone come out safe from an accident like that. I'm sure your friend would have braked as well when he started to skid/swerve and the final impact would probably have been at much less speeds than what you were at when you took the curve.

Well, Pancham did say that he didn't count or know what happened. It was what the public told him. Lets give him the benefit of doubt.

Yes, seatbelts are and will be the primary live saving mechanism in a car.

And I don't want to give advice or point out flaws here. I've done my share of sins and I certainly cannot take a "holier than thou" attitude to find fault with what your friend has done in this case. I'm happy to see a lot of folks in T-BHP who seem to follow rules to the book!!!

Man you are very lucky to be alive if the details what you have given is correct. But it is common sense that people don't go more than 100 also when it is drizzling/raining. I don't know what to tell. It would be better if you could get some more snaps or answer the question/doubts that were asked.

The car never somersaulted. Look at the roof.
Something's fishy here.

If your BEST driver friend ever did that 190kmph stunt, he is just plain STUPID.
Its even more with your argument about F1 drivers making mistakes. You must be kidding.

Were you doing this stunt at your friend's private racing track or any racing track? NO. You were doing it on a PUBLIC ROAD. That means your skidding Civic with that wannabe racer driver could have met a family in their M800 in its path...and killed all of them.
Go ahead, i know you can justify that also qouting some race driver.
