Oh La La La La: inside the big Nurburgring crash.
"Oh lalalalala, putain, merde comme c'est violente..."
There seems to be an effort to bury the incident and pull videos off YT, the fact that the video below had it's title changed to "NOT for Save the Ring" and then pulled gives a bit of a clue about the Eiffel intramural scrum going on these days.
That clip showed, in our opinion, gross stupidity and unbelievable lack of judgement by the Nurburgring track crews who crated a 20 mph funnel on a very fast part of the track and put warning signals after a blind corner at nowhere near enough distance for a safe deceleration.
No wonder track management bans cameras and why it's more important than ever people disregard and document everything, thanks to the video's author for sharing.
This clip shows you a lot of what happened.
we start as the car rounds Bergwerk and starts the climb up the hill. One accident at the work zone funnel has already happened, you will see a white e90 M3 missing a complete front strut and at least one damaged 911
Cars are stopping everywhere as they can, on the grass, sideways. In the camera car they quickly realize stopping is not the right play and just as they start picking their way thought the wreck, you see a Corvette stop at the back and moments later getting smashed by one of the BMW Ring Taxis arriving on the scene what else, flat out!
