It was a 360 with F430 wheels.

According to a guy on Ferrarichat, from this town in Poland, this spot is accident prone due to a poor design in the road. One guy was laying flowers for a friend who died there. He in turn was killed by a car that lost control.

ouch. sad to see.

I've driven around quite a bit in Poland. They drive pretty quickly in general. Not much in the way of a highway system though, at least not compared to those of Germany, France, etc. Coupling a fast car without autobahns to run it on is going to spell trouble.

Don't blame the roads, they never harm anyone, they don't move!

Blame the lack of talent behind the wheel.

Where's the cockpit? Ferraris come apart like that in high speed crashes but the cockpit normally detaches and remains intact.

unfortunately, us polish have a bad habit of making foolish choices while behind the wheel for some reason. Here in Chicago, there are far too many alcohol, speeding, racing, and motorcycles accident and deaths for many young, and stupid, for lack of better words, polish, usually males, and unfortunately the passengers that might've been.

What do you mean behind the wheel... isn't it just foolish choices in every day to day activity?


it's ok... I'm Polish too.

Driving fast has absolutely nothing to do with getting there faster. In fact every time I step on the pedal I accept I may end up late for my destination because I'll get pulled over.

I would take my car to the track. At least I won't kill anyone there (well, I might). Plus, I won't get points on my license. And last, it's in a closed environment so I can relax and not worry about all the shit I would otherwise if I was on a public street.
I concur with this assessment. That car disintegrated. He did something wrong. Either he wasn't familiar enough with that stretch of road to be going that fast or he was going too fast period and lost it on a road he knew well. I personally don't drive nearly as fast when I'm not familiar with a road, even on the highway. All my insanities are committed on roads I've driven hundreds of times and could likely drive with my eyes closed.
