Maybe the most valiant save I've seen at a dragstrip...
But what happened to kick out the back end of the MR2? I don't believe it could have had the power to kick out the back at those speeds. Maybe something broke in the rear suspension - but if that was the case I don't think he could have gotten the car back

Skip to 31:53 if this doesn't automatically track

Is that a big powder spot from oil absorbent or just the light on the track? That is where he started to lose it.
He is Australian so you know the car has an excess of power.

I think you're right. Looking at the video in slow-mo, it looks like the car was already wagging a little from the start went through the absorbent and slung the other way
