Remember how shocked many people are when seeing videos showing tons of people boarding a train that was designed to hold a quarter of them over in India? Sometimes, the Nurburgring Touristenfahrten (Tourist Days) can become just like that, with a huge crowd of cars and bikes struggling to share the track.
Heavy Nordschleife traffic is one of the reasons for which drifting is forbidden during such events, but certain drivers simply let their douche side of their personality take over and ignore that rule.

Don't get us wrong, we find no problem in letting the back slide in a manner that can't lead to your car spinning and becoming a threat. Heck, even Ring Taxi drivers do this from time to time. and since it's extremely difficult to separate deliberate drifting from the occasional oversteer that might occur during a track day, they get away with it.

However, the guy behind the wheel of the BMW 1 Series Coupe in the piece of footage below takes things one many steps too far. Lap after lap, the man enjoys going through Adenauer Forst sideways.

It doesn't even matter if he does is for the camera of for his sheer joy, the idea is that the inevitable happens, with his Bimmer spinning out of control. This leads to a bit of a jam building up, as the drivers and riders behind him were forced to brake.

And while the whole situation was far from turning into an accident, the premises were there - this is one of the paths that leads to horrific Nurburgring pile-ups.

While the first piece of footage below is focused on the wannabe drifter's failed stunt, the clip underneath it gives us a richer perspective on the man's attitude, but the latter does require 14 minutes of your time.

P.S.: If you're willing to drift more than a little, perhaps it would be a good idea to enter the Nurburgring Drift Cup, which takes place not on the Nordschleife, but on the Müllenbachschleife part of the circuit - here's a sample of the action.
