Re: Rental Vette wrecked on Nurburgring


Police are still investigating, but cite "excessive speed" as the cause.

Err, it's a racetrack.... People tend to drive fast on them....

Maybe this should read: Police are still investigating, but cite "lack of ability" as the cause

This video was taken before the accident, as you can see you don't get a lot of notice before the roadworks. Surprised

Re: Rental Vette wrecked on Nurburgring


It's a tricky track to drive on. I've done more than 160 laps with a Golf mk 2 GTI, Golf mk 5 GTI and once with a Lotus on it.

During the tourist driving hours, I'm always keeping my distance from the other cars, they're many people on the track with not enough track experience.

I think this accident happened because of too much cars on the same time on the same place.

Re: Rental Vette wrecked on Nurburgring


There is another (and better) video here

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXTXGY1sUeA

Skip forward to 9:40 and watch for about a minute - if you look closely you get to see the Vette being pranged Sad

After watching the original vid (now taken down) and then this, I'll revise my earlier comment

"Police are still investigating, but cite "poor track safety management by the 'Ring" as the cause" Just my 2 cents of course

Looks like the Vette was stood still when the white BMW hit him in the rear !!

Er no it's not a race track. On public days it is a mostly deristricted toll road and therefore dosent benefit from the usual standards of track marshalling and certainly track safety
