Audi TT RS Driver Crashes at the Nurburgring… Twice at the Same Corner

"Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me." That saying is something this wannabe race driver should take to heart.

After one of the faster corners on the Nurburgring almost catches his Audi TT RS out, the driver decide what he needs is not less speed and more caution, but the exact opposite. The results are as predictable as they are hard to watch. The beautiful yellow coupe scrapes along a huge section of track barriers.

Do you guys know how the famous Carousel corner at the Nurburgring was formed? People repeatedly clipped the tight corner and went on the grass until eventually a sharply banked concrete section was added. If we extrapolate that philosophy to this part of the track, it needs an extra bit of tarmac and some soft mattresses to catch all the crashing cars.

This video perfectly demonstrates the difference between real life racing and unrealistic videos games. Game: max throttle and use the barrier to steer the car. No problem! Real live: lots of damage to a €50,000 car and probably €2,000 in fines for damage to the barrier.

That huge cloud of smoke poses a safety risk for any cars coming through the area at high speed. Not to mention the Audi could have developed an oil or gas leak which could spill onto the track.
