Confidence can be a dangerous thing. I was feeling pretty good about myself out on the snow-covered road course of the Monticello Motor Club road course, pulling big yaw angles with the Aston Martin Vantage Roadster, making it look nice for the camera just as the snow was giving way to ice. You see where this is going: carrying too much speed down a particularly slick part of the track and into a snowbank, pushing in the mesh grille and cracking the carbon-fiber splitter. Oops.
