Video of a guy crashing his car while weaving at a DE

Have you guys seen this video - looks like a DE in Germany. The driver is trying to get some heat into the tires on the warm-up lap and ends up in the wall, LMAO!!

Clearly, the guy should have warmed up his tires before he tried to warm up his tires.

Looks like Hockenheimring by the track seating in the background. Not really a DE since there are no instructors and you don't have helmet rules. They do separate the autos and bikes though.

I'm speechless, a classic case of monkey see monkey do. He saw the car in front "warm" it's tires and decided it would be a good idea as well. check out the rear view mirror at second 15-16, looks like the guy crush the rear right (maybe left) of the Z28.

Good thing he got 'out of the way' before the high speed laps started.

I saw people do that at the opening day at Watkins Glen last year, an event where you are limited to 55mph.

We're assuming he was trying to get heat in his tires. It is entirely possible that he was just following the guy in front of him thinking it was the correct line for that portion of the track.

Maybe he was looking for the jet dryer?
