Swerving Corner

I had this minor little incident while driving yesterday, I lost control of my car at one point. My car is a really feisty car and it shows. I was turning at a corner when one of the front wheels went over a puddle of water. That was when I lost the back of the car and it swung wildly to one side.

Luckily I did not depress my brakes. If I did, I would probably have totally lost control of the car. Instead, I released the accelerator and fought with the car to get back in control. It was an ‘interesting’ experience having your car go in one way while your steering wheel is pointed in another. My rear end swung wildly to the left and right for a few seconds and finally settled back into order.

That was quite an experience. It was kind of like – drifting – is what I would say.
