A few years ago my sister took a photo similar to this of me in my orange Mustang leading the field several laps ahead and passing everyone in sight on the road course at Bondurant School of High Performance Driving in Phoenix. She lined up for a another shot but was very concerned when I didn't come around on the next lap. I had gone into turn 11 going WAY too fast, spun 2−1/4 times around on the asphalt, and went off the track backwards.
As required by school rules following a spin I returned to the pits. On pit road my instructor just handed me a "Creative Driving Award" and sent me back out to pass the entire field *again*
