    • BMW 318is race car flips over the barriers at the 2011 Nuburgring 24 hours

      Here is a wreck somewhat reminiscent of the terrible Audi crash at Le Mans with another car going over the barrier and getting dangerously close to the crowd. The #206 BMW 318is goes onto the damp grass and then tries to get back on the track sliding out into and over the barrier. The driver amazingly was able to walk away unharmed and even helped with waving the yellow caution flag.

        Damn, the driver popped up and grinded the barrier like a skateboard! Glad no one was hurt.

        Looks like the tire got wet and he couldn't regain traction.

        Lol yeah that was like a boardslide in a car!




        It's crazy the speed even the weaker race prepped cars carry!
