Driving a fast car fast takes a lot of skill. Split second decisions and actions can mean life or death. One little mistake and there could be a crash that can be fatal.
Racing, on the other hand, needs something more. One would need eyes at the back of their head. And if a wrong decision or judgement is made, that could end up being fatal.
In this video below, the driver's split second decision and reflex action saves him from crashing into another car during a race. The BMW that loses control from the inside line almost wipes both the cars off the track, but a split-second flick of the wheel saves the day for this driver.
