The driver turned in too early and pinched the apex. He was probably dragging the brake on the way in to the corner, which might have unsettled the rear. Lifting off the pedals and a big check and hold to the right with the steering wheel would have kept the car on the track. The front wheels still had traction, which is why the car turned left.

I wondered what the motorcycle guy was thinking after the crash?

Not necessarily. I got the rear end of a 328i x drive loose during a test drive. The road was curvy and it was wet. I was surprised seeing that DSC was on and it was awd. I was able to correct in time luckily with little drama. You shoulda seen the sales guys face. He was like "that was awesome. You were drifting."

With 4 people in a tail happy car, plus a wet road is a recipe for disaster regardless of whether it took place on a track, course or even a "toll road". Stay safe out there and I'm sorry about your M.

That guy doesn't value his life much I see.

Never drove this in real, but it is a tricky one in GTR-Evo (the game). This turn has a bump just before the (very late) apex. If you take it from the inside, the rear of the car rebounds like on a racket, exactly at the moment you think "oh shhhh its a closing radius", and there is no way to avoid a spin. The proper trajectory is on the outside with late apex, and you still have to be careful not to lose it. It is not as bumpy as the inside, but it still unsettle easily.

Very unfortunate for the OP. I hate to see such a nice M3 get wrecked. Since The Ring is a public tollway and NOT a racetrack did the insurance pay out?


As for the vintage videos.....a few observations. Cars used to roll with little or no provocation. The drivers inside these cars were rarely utilized the lap belt. WTF is up with all the random rubbish inside the cars.....who really hauls all that crap with them everywhere they go. What is up with track safety....let's just give spectators the apex to set up a picnic....that way we don't need tow trucks to right the rollovers. People must have been terrified of burning alive in their cars....no more than a second or two after a crash the drivers jump out like it's going to blow up hollywood style.

I wonder how much he was charged to repair the guard rail that he wrapped up.

I've had friends return from ED and told me that you are charged a per meter rate for guard rail repair if you crash on the ring.

They charge you, a lot.

Costs are incredibly expensive. You can see them here: http://www.nurburgring.org.uk/prices.php

Insurance from foreign cars mostly now exclusive the 'Ring specifically in the terms and conditions. So if you crash there, your left with the cost of ring closure, replacement armco, recovery, the cost of your car and if you happen to collect anyone else.

Wrong line, lifted off when neutral throttle was needed on camber and direction change, downhill, people in the back, late correction.

Apart from that it was pretty good, really....

WOW... this is good to know... I hope to ED a 4-series when released and will have to deal accordingly as my bucket-list would include. Honestly im more concerned about others hitting me... but im far from infallible.

If there is a DROP of rain im not going near the nurburgrin
