BMW M3 E92 Crash Nurburgring Nordschleife Onboard video

The Nürburgring is a motorsports complex around the village of Nürburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. It is located about 70 km (43 mi) south of Cologne, and 120 km (75 mi) northwest of Frankfurt. It features a Grand Prix race track built in 1984, and a much longer old “North loop” track which was built in the 1920s around the village and medieval castle of Nürburg in the Eifel mountains. The north loop is 12.8 miles (20.8 km) long and has more than 300 meters (1,000 feet) of elevation change from its lowest to highest points.

This video consists of an amateur racing and you'll see a BMW M3 E92 crashing very hard.

The BMW M3 was racing against some other cars, but suddenly the driver lost the control of the car.The rear side of the car slipped and he lost the control. The track was a little wet and this caused the accident.



I had a conversation with the former M3 owner:

Me: "Seems modified to me, looks like it has springs and a BBK? Your wreck looks like it was on the "Wipperman" turn? I lost my STi on that turn. They don't call it the Wipperman for nothing. I just had flashbacks looking at your video."

M3 Driver: Yes, it was on the Wipperman. The M3 is modified, eibach springs, full akra exhaust and brembo brakes.
But the M3 was out balance because we were with 4 in the car.

Me: "What did you do with the car? Did you part it out or fix it?"

M3 Driver: I fixed it and then sold it, now I have a BMW HP4. Much cheaper and much much faster.

Gotta be a lot quicker with the hands. The rear can come out quite easily on the E9x. That's too bad - sh!t happens out there sometimes unfortunatley.

+1, it seems you could have corrected much faster to control the oversteer

That depends... it is probably safer but you can drive it at slow speeds if you want and be fine.

Racing is not allowed there... but what people do when driving a toll road with no speed limits is another matter.

I never felt like I needed to, no. But at the same time, I wasn't driving like those idiots either. I knew my limits. And the fact that I saw a GT-R crash literally within the first 10 turns made me extra careful haha.

It's a toll road no helmets required. That track is very tricky when wet. I have a few moments like the video but saved it (lucky). He did seem to off line and that turn gets quite narrow. Bad day.

looks like that turn dips as you enter and can unsettle the car, especially taking the wrong line...the rear got light after going into it and the car loses control...that sux, at least no one was hurt.

What can you do? Can't be too harsh on the drivers...shit can happen when you're on a track.

What were the condition of the tires? I've been on a turn like that it looks like you can get enter fast but realize its deceiving.
