File under: Lucky
This is the result of all the nitrogen in my front right tire deciding to come out, all at once, and at the least most opportune moment. Luckily, those immediately behind me were able to navigate around as I flirted with the less desirable parts of corner 7 at the Infineon Raceway (Sonoma). Could have been a lot worse. Remarkably, all that was damaged on the RS4 the tire, not a scratch otherwise. Although, it did dent my confidence and it kept me off the track for the the first half of the day while I sourced replacement rubber.
Not the most glamorous shot of the Audi RS4. Note the shredded front tire.
