True. That event was awesome too, and local rotorheads are friendly

Looking back I see he actually rolled about 4 times, which would explain the write off.

What I dont understand is before the roll he/she was doing a right hand bend, but then rolled clockwise, like it fell down a ditch or a wheel fell off.......

Did you see it in the flesh Jarno?

Well, driver of that car is notorious for his style. We have saying here: tulos tai ulos, which basically means: first place or nothing... As you might know, many Finns race that way...

Driver is ok. Car isnt

Didnt see it. Only see fiberglass parts flying in air...

In fast turn to right, car drifted to big gravel pile in left side, rear hitted that and lifted it to roll...

And make it a real 'roll' cage by making the top a semi circle so that the car rights itself. :)) :))
Finance dictated it had to go 13 months ago,  after 14 years in an RX8 regretted ever since.
