BMW Ring-Taxi in rookie Brünnchen fail

BMW Ring-Taxi crash, Nurburgring, August 2014

Looking at the image above there’s only one way this BMW Ring-Taxi ride is going to end. And it’s not pretty. To be fair BMW has experiences worse crashes at the Nürburgring with its famed Ring-Taxi, but this one stands out because it looks a bit like a rookie error.

The accident happened on the exit of Brünnchen; driver goes wide to the left of track on exit, gets some oversteer and then ends up shooting across the track and into the barrier on the right hand side. We’ve seen it time and time again. Unless there was some oil or fluids on the circuit you just wouldn’t expect one of BMW’s usually very adept drivers to make a mistake like that.

Thankfully, it appears as though nobody was seriously hurt in the incident. Although the driver’s pride and bank balance may have taken a blow.
