Re: SAS Expert Training

Apparently, finding the limit point means driving as far away from the bend as possible... :) sounds like standard AD intro, with some common sense evasion tactics, wrapped together to sell at a premium to the rich and paranoid... good business model...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

Even when empty, drivers seem determined (as the one ahead in the photo) to not use the good surface, instead they head out right over the decaying join and closer t...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding
