So on the way home today, down the usual route, It was drizzling, had been for about an hour? Was dry before and has been dry for a few days.
Came up to a corner, I know this corner well. it was a long 90 degree right hander, cambered a bit. Smooth tarmac instead of the rougher asphalt. 100kph speed limit. I came into it neutral throttle, just coasting mostly, at a speed i know I could easily take the corner at. i wasn't pushing it or anything, was fine. And then, halfway around the corner, the back end of my car just went out with no warning, i can barely remember what happened next other than i know i steered into it immediately, and shoved both feet on the brake. I did a full 360, literally. And stopped in the middle of the turning bay thats on the corner since theres an intersection on the corner (its a country road) so i wasnt on either side of the road.
Thankfully no cars were coming the other way, and while there was one behind me he was far enough back to slow down. He came past and looked out the window and waved to see if I was okay.
I drove the rest of the way back at 60kph.
it was fucking scary. Im so fucking lucky that there was a turning bay on that corner, that i stopped in it, that there was no one coming the other way, that the car behind me was far enough back, and that I didn't hit anything.
Talking to my dad, he thinks that there was a bit of an oil patch on the road there, which is what suddenly caused it to spin out, because of the slight rain.
Im fine, my cars fine, but fucking hell. It was scary as hell and I was shaking for hours afterwards.
