Mitsubishi Evo Nurburgring Crash is a Quick Driving Lesson

You would imagine that hitting the Nurburgring behind the wheel of a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution would result in glorious laps, with the rally-bred machine devouring the Green Hell along with unsuspecting Tourist Days drivers. Well, such a scenario would require a driver who is up to the task, which isn't the case with the guy behind the wheel of the Evo that brought us here.

In fact, the crash experienced by this Evo hooner demonstrates that the man failed to tackle the Nordschleife properly, while also lacking control of his all-wheel-drive toy.

The accident took place in Adenauer Forst, a corner that usually surprises novices. Nevertheless, most incidents that take place in this Ring sections see cars going wide and ending up on the grass on the outside of the first bend that makes up the S section.

Well, the all-paw abilities of this Evo allowed to driver to avoid such a scenario. However, once the car avoided the understeer, the driver should've brought it back in line.

Instead of doing that, the man used a late countersteer reaction, with the rear stepping way out of line. And the fact that he panicked and hit the brakes only made things worse, with the car ending up completing a 180-degree turn.

The Mitsu hit the barrier on the side of the track just as it was about to come to a halt and, as you'll see in the clip below, the ridiculous driving didn't even stop there.

Now, you should know that the Evo crash we mentioned above is part of a Ring accident compilation. So while the Lancer shenanigan awaits you at the 4:55 point of the video, the rest of the clip will also keep you on your toes.

Sure, we've already shown you some of the accidents in this video, but chances are you'll also get to check out fresh material
