Have you ever wondered why they don't treat pyromaniacs with
anti-inflammatory drugs?

That was excellent. Full left lock and max power before the wheels had even
touched the ground. He would have rolled a long way otherwise. Smart guy.

Certainly showed a clear head, despite the situation. Ironically if
the other 4x4 hadn't have been where it was, he wouldn't have rolled
it. You see him try to steer round the other 4x4, which is what causes
the roll.

not entirely convinced - he'd got a swerve on before that, and I reckon the
front end was dues to overtake the back anyway. Mind, WTF the other one was
doing at the top of a hill people are trying to climb is anyone's guess.
