VAG Trophy Driver Pulls Off Staggering Save

A driver from the VAG Trophy championship has managed to pull off a remarkable save which has to be seen to be believed.

Over the weekend, VW Golf driver Kenan Dole was leading a race at Brands Hatch before the rear of his car suddenly stepped out at the exit of Paddock Hill Bend and for the next 10 seconds, the car was fishtailing wildly along the track.

Onboard footage shows Dole furiously countersteering in an effort to avoid spinning, and by the time the car stopped sliding at Druids, Dole was sliding down the track at a 110-degree angle yet somehow, didn’t end up in the crash barriers.

Sadly, the save wasn’t perfect since just after seemingly regaining control, he ran into an Audi TT.

    I was once told by Peter Brock (a famous Aussie race driver RIP) that once your car goes beyond 45 degrees (to intended trajectory), it’s pretty damn impossible to save it, but that was in a rear wheel drive car. That was impressive.

      Nah, done it plenty on track (RWD), but it can be a scary ride for sure.

    Damn nice save. Looks like a video game almost.

  • Dennis James

    Well, it was a save…until it failed on the easiest part 🙂

    Now thats some wheelin and dealing on those four wheel deals..

  • Jason Miller

    FWD FTW. If that had been a RWD car it would have went around in those conditions. Best part about a FWD is if the rear steps out, the throttle will bring it right back in line.

    Arab drifters can learn a lot from this man!

    Accidental reverse entry. Nice.
