    Looking at the front wheels it only seemed the driver was aware of what was happening when the car started going to the left.

    Was he using the LC?? I know it disables the TC, but IIRC it doesn't completely disable it so you don't just sit & spin the tires (more like minimum TC intervention to give the best acceleration time)

    The video takes place at a drag racing track. Where the driver, alone, just tries to "ride out" the wheel spin from which he can't recover and smacks the wall, not violently but hard enough to cause considerable damage. Now the video says "owner." Well this car has no front or back license plate, weird, for the owner to take them off if he's just taking it for a spin. Maybe it's a test gone wrong by a magazine where BMW had delivered the car. But since the video has now been pulled....adds further to speculation now.

    Why not?
    Bit of a sad move to take the video offline.

    Ouch. But there seem to be speculations whether this is owned by an individual, dealer or was it for a magazine.

    Why? Didn't know there was a history behind the crash. Don't know the owner or driver.

    Why was it not in good form? They should have left the video up.

    It's a good reminder to people what can happen at the track and gives them an idea of what not to do.

    If it can save at least one person from doing the same thing and damaging their own car it's worth posting.

    Ok fair enough. The owner wasn't there, car was 3 days old. Anyway long story I don't think he expected it would get crashed. But I suppose that's life. $#@! happens.
