Had the wits to pull the chute.
Saw this one a little ways back... my take away is, this should be proof that you should get an insurance discount for adding a chute to your car just like they give for airbags...

I accept that my synopsis was pretty ignorant. But after the hard landing on the right front, he continued straight down the track. Clearly a well built car. And it turns out he made a successful pass the very next day (passed tech). Right rear fender needs an update. For Sail.

$5 says there was an onboard system(s) tied to a yaw sensor and accelerometers (probably wheel speed sensors too) that deployed it automatically.

The manual button on the trailer brake controller has saved my bacon a few times.
