Google VP Skillfully Keeps Ferrari 488 GT3 From Crashing At 120 Mph

Ben Sloss isn’t just the guy Google hired to make sure its websites don’t go down; he’s also a huge car enthusiast and known Ferrari collector.

His collection includes a 599XX Evolution, a 458 Speciale a Giallo Tristrato LaFerrari, and more.

This time however, he was behind the wheel of a 488 GT3 at Mont-Tremblant, a race track in Quebec, Canada.

Thanks to the dashcam, we can see how the car’s rear end decided to take a break for a split second at about 121 mph (194 km/h), requiring Sloss to countersteer swiftly in order for the 488 to not end up in the barrier by the side of the track.

This is what happened in his own words:

“Mix a cresting right-hander at a hundred and twenty one miles an hour, with a compression rebound and a lot of aero, and you get a very exciting moment coming over the top of the hill at Mont-Tremblant in a Ferrari 488 GT3. I give a lot of credit to the courses I took at Dirtfish and Bridgestone ice driving for keeping my car out of the wall on this particular day.”

Those courses definitely paid off, because one could have easily lost control of the car during that right-hander, either by overcorrecting or by not reacting soon enough. Sloss did exactly what he had to do to keep the racer on the track and away from the barrier, so kudos to him!
