Video: Nürburgring: huur-Clio boort zich in Nissan GT-R
En belandt vervolgens op zijn dak . De Porsches had hij gezien, de Nissan kennelijk niet. Zijn eigenaar zegt:
First lap of the day, still warming up the car, so luckily (or not?) so i wasn't going anywhere near the usual pace. I let the 2 Porsches pass me and drove behind them for a while. Coming up to Metzgersfeld we caught up with some slower traffic, among them a while Clio rental. I usually give the rentals a wide berth as they are usually driven by people with limited Ring knowledge, who can sometimes get overwhelmed by the whole experience and become a little oblivious to what's going on around them.
Coming up to the Spiegelkurve, Clio has moved completely to the right, so we all try to get past, still being very cautious of the traffic - we are obviously not racing or driving anywhere near the usual speed at that section. However, the Clio cuts straight across the track to the left - he either didn't look or didn't see me, although a big black GTR is hard to miss...I brake hard and move to the left as much as i could go without going off the track myself, but i'm left with nowhere to go. He hits my right wheel, his back end spins, Clio's front wheels dig into the grass off the track and he flips on the roof. He slides for about 50m before coming to a stop.
Fortunately there were some people around to wave and warn the oncoming traffic, and the Streckesicherung arrived within seconds, literally. Occupants of the Clio were pretty banged up, got a few cuts from the broken glass, but fortunately that was that. Clio was a total loss. You drive your own conclusions as to who's at fault here.
