This accident is a clash between two titans of affordable performance: the Honda S2000 and a Mk4 Golf R32. VTEC versus VR6, rear-wheel drive versus all-wheel drive. Japan versus Germany. It's what we'd call a classic.
The S2000 is slowing down to let faster-moving Nurburgring traffic pass it. Unfortunately, at the exact same time a Golf R hot hatch is caught out by the track curb, loses traction and plows into the back of the Honda at high speed.
The Golf will need a lot of engine work, but both cars should be okay and probably learned valuable lessons in track day etiquette.
Our say: Poor Honda driver probably never knew what hit him! Still, this could have gone a lot worse.
