Kurt wrecked in practice today. He's ok. At least they have a few days to rebuild the car, better to wreck today than on Sunday.

@taterracing I think he just got loose and turned right to try to correct it.
With the amount of downforce these cars have, I can only imagine how hard they'd be to save when they get loose. I'd think that once it gripped during counter-steering, it'd just slam you into the wall.

Did you watch qualifying yesterday? Hinch darn near lost it after the back end came around a bit. I'm not sure how the heck he saved it. I would have overcorrected into a wall.

I'm glad he's alright. Hopefully that's his only issue in Indy.

Kurt's a very talented driver & I'm sure he'll learn from that mistake......it was just a rookie error.
I wouldn't even call it a rookie error, sometimes dirty air upsets a car before you have time to react.

He has very limited experience to see what a car does but I'd rather him get it out of the way now to see what happens than risk it in a race.

Maybe I missed it but I'm kind of surprised there aren't safer barriers or are there?

he hit right at the end of the safer barriers
