Another video to show how important Electronic Stability Programs are

Attached Image This video by CarAdvice demostrates how big a difference electronic nannies like ESP (Electronic Stability Programs) in our cars make. While most of us (hopefully) have no need for it, it can definitely save your life or a pedestrian's life.
 
In the video, professional racing driver, James Courtney, who races in the V8 Supercars, go through two runs in a Holden Insignia VXR ( a.k.a Opel Insignia here) : one with all of the systems (including ABS) turned off, and another with all switched back on.
