Default one bad day for a canyon run

so i read a post on here from HTT760 in the sd thread that there was going to be a canyon run a few days ago that the z32 guys were setting up. i'd thought it would be fun to take my 370z and fiance out on a canyon run since the z had been sitting in the garage. we met up with everyone this morning. we were the first ones there and to follow was a red gtr, 3 or 4 z32 guys another 370z and a pontiac. everyone was really nice and greeted each other. i then mounted my go pro but didnt turn it on. i didnt want to turn it on until we got into the canyon. then we headed out into towards the canyon. maybe 5 minutes into the canyon, "chris", a z32 driver takes a turn too hot, looses traction and rolled his z32 right in front of us. he wasnt going very fast, he just hit a patch of dirt it seemed like and lost it. i then quickly pulled over and ran to help him out but by the time i got to him he was already out of the car. he came out of the car with only scratches and was perfectly ok, just shaken up. the car is done but as long as chris is ok, thats all that matters and could have been a lot worse! jusrt want to say if any of you do any spiritual driving in mountains or canyons, please be carefull and please be safe about it! im not trying to preach but i would, along with your z friends would hate to here you died on a spirited run. so please be carefull out there. oh and chris rode along with another z32 driver to finish the run and had lunch with us. i think i wouldve gone home and cried! haha

i have a lot more pix but, ya know.

Wow, wouldn't have imagined a rollover at 40. Crazy stuff. At least he came out of it though.

i was only doing 25 because of the toyota. the turn wasnt that far up ahead, im guessing 40. its only a NA z32, not a TT but im not the speedometer, so only he knows what he was really doing. it didnt look that fast though. it wasnt even that hard of a corner


edit: fiance says closer to 55-60 which would make more sense. i have bad judgement when it comes to that stuff. probably more realistic. the driver said 40 though i looked at my speedo though and said 25ish. we were stuck behind grandma

I know the couple with the red GT-R. I got a ride in it last August.

They stated that it was loose gravel on the road that made him lose control and flip.

I'm suprised the roll back operator didn't flip the car rightside up. I never see them winch a car on upside down

So it was a left hand curve. The driver got into the dirt, over-corrected, spun around, and his rear hit the bank on the other side of the road. When his rear hit, it caused kind of a slow motion roll over. This is how he described it and his skid marks concurred.
