Of course it was the driver! The car did not wreck itself! Road? Driver should be paying attention! Weather conditions? Police write tickets for Too Fast For Conditions! (Do they give the car a ticket or the driver?) Other than a blow out (where the driver should still be able to save it) or a broken axle...anyway you look at it...the driver wrecked the car! Dumb driver!

Maybe if they actually caught this on camera and the presenters abuse Aaron Gold the way we all are and the way he deserves they might actually have something funny AND original

That is the difference between thinking you know how to drive and knowing how to drive. A million dollars of computers on board a car will not over ride the laws of physics.

ha ha. so lossing a car makes you an idiot and stupid???? if you have never spun a car out I have to say 100% you are a puss.

Every pro driver in the world is stupid and an idiot then.

there is no person in the world with much seat time pushing a car to the limit that has not lost one. no way no how.

Exactly...and it was the drivers fault...not the car! Nice, proved my point.

I'm going to low ball this guy... I'd give 3,990 for said car if it is indeed totaled.

Does suck to see an awesome car bite it, but that's what they are there for. To be raced, enjoyed, and every now and then wrecked.

Don't be too hard on Aaron guys. How do you know the limits if you don't cross 'em once in a while?

Now that we know he's ok, I just want to see the video!

I loss control of my C4 Vettes many times and it was stupid on a few of those occasions because I knew better...The problem is with not much seat time (a drive with a very powerful new car in the rain) this idiot manages to lose it, period! I am not a pro driver, but I am sure even pro drivers will take their time getting familiar with the behavior of the car and the track and its condition before pushing the limits. When a pro driver loss control it's usually problems with the car as they tend to have a good seat of the pant sense of when they are about to lose control and recover.

Damage is just cosmetic however, according to GM.

Wow, what a shame!

Cosmetic for GM but at least $10,000 at a body shop. And ooooooh the insurance rates.

Ok, a few factors we're not looking at.

1. Was the driver qualified to really drive the car at high speeds?

2. Why did GM let the driver take it out on a wet course?

3. Did the driver hydro-plane? If so why did track officials let any drivers on the track if water "could" puddle.

There are to many questions, and what if's, and we don't have the answers. Accidents happen, it's to bad that it was on the ZL-1.

I just hope that Top Gear doesn't smear this and make it look like it was the machines fault and not the driver.
