Lotus Esprit V8
The owner was getting used to the new car and experimenting with different 'lines' on a fun day at Nelson's Ledges race course in Ohio. This was the result of, among other things, a bad choice of lines. The car left the track backwards at close to 90 mph. It impacted the tirewall at significant speed and ended up on the wall. No one was hurt. The damage was a bit costly, but the car was driven home and will be repaired.
