Starring Vadim Kogay, a 45 year old russian business man who decided he was going to buy a 458 GT3 and pay to race.

You would have thought that after a while he'd have figured to slow down a bit on the fast corners...

He is just taking the Marc Marquez approach to finding the limits by going over them. The only difference is that he goes way over them  :lol:

Isn't that the general standard of driving of Ferrari customers? :p

 

More seriously I'm surprised he wasn't black flagged.   I wonder if he had a clean lap at all.

Three-driver race, and the most professional of the three drivers took the first hour-long stint.

It's a pro am class, rich amateurs that own the cars and finance the racing effort and professional drivers who get a car like that up to second. They need each other, the professionals couldn't do that kind of racing without the rich amateurs and vice versa

I see you the guy who used to run in F1 friday practice for some team around 07/08(Maybe he was a fulltime driver?)Who always bounced on the limiter a few seconds before changing up.

 

Can anybody help me to remember who this was?

That is terrible. Seemed as if he jumped straight into the race without doing any laps in practice.

 

PS: It just HAD to be in a Ferrari.

That is terrible. Seemed as if he jumped straight into the race without ever doing any laps in practice.

 

I thought that too, then I noticed that he overshot most times while following another driver. I think he was in a frame of mind like: 'Oh, when HE can brake there, I can do it too!'

 

In which he was sadly mistaken.

I hope the race director got a b******ing from someone for allowing that to continue.

I feel kinda sorry for the guy, he was hopelessly out of his depth. But I felt even more sorry for the other people on the track with him, that was dangerous.

It was very much racing game driving. "Oh I can go flat round this corner probably..... Oh I can't. Oh well!" You can't say he lacked enthusiasm. :p

This is much worse:

 

 

 

One lap down, waiting a lap on track and cutting chicanes/corners to hit the leader who could win the championship.

The culprit was banned for life by Renault.

Don Shead of Mako Racing, who entered Le Mans a number of times in the 1980s, was the first (unintended) victim of 'Dr' Emil Savundra, a con artist who built up an insurance company based on a pyramid scheme (which collapsed in May 1967 - there is still a spike of car insurance policy renewals each May as a result, explaining the plethora of adverts at the moment).

 

Savundra entered the Isle of Wight powerboat race in 1964 and the first thing he hit was Shead's boat.  The second thing he hit was a lifeboat (sinking it) and the third thing he hit was a lighthouse.  Only when he cracked a vertebra was he persuaded to call it a day.

That is quite ugly. But he tried, though. But leave it to the professionals....

 

Still, he could have casued a very bad crash with the other drivers.

Really does remind me of racing games where you're not too sure of how tight the corner is until you're pointing backwards, you just say to yourself " oh, i'll get it right next time round"

Honestly, that's exactly like online racing. Tap someone at some point early in a race, and they'll literally hide their car only to jump out, cut some corners, and ram you off from the lead. Nice to know that people are that stupid even when they aren't annonymous internet users and real lives are at risk.

Even harder. I was once a passenger aboard a Lamborghini Countach lapping Zandvoort... the day before I had done several laps myself in a Mini. That was pretty easy, because the Mini is easy (still I was exhausted after three laps). Then I witnessed first hand with amazement how much work the driver had to put in just to get the Countach to slow down for Tarzan. While in the Mini it was: start braking, slowly release brake while steering in, release brake totally, the Countach needed as much work as wilde horse that has to be broken down severely before you can even think about putting a saddle on...

The driver used an alias that day... so perhaps it wasn't far from an internet user (Old Navajo or something).

I must say, eventhough i'm having a laugh at theese dudes, I would not do better myself. Probably much worse. But knowing my limitations,I restrict personal driving escapades to getteing as many MPG out of my Volvo as possible. Something theese guys should consider.

I'm sure the guy in the OP is having an absolute ball but I am surprised he is cleared to race as he is obviously very dangerous to race against.
