Ridiculous BMW M3 Nurburgring Crash: V8 Torque Can't Compensate for Poor Driving

We want to start by getting one thing straight: as odd as it sounds, certain Nurburgring crashes are justified. For instance, when you have an official or personal record to beat, it's obvious that you can't achieve your target without taking at least a few risks of this kind.
However, the Green Hell has also earned its nickname by biting inexperienced drivers, with this leading to the kind of ridiculous accidents that could've been easily avoided.

The most recent example of the silly crash trend took place earlier this weekend, sadly involving a delicious E92 BMW M3.

We can see the M3 driver losing traction as he comes out of the corner and, from this point on, it all looks like a wave of mistakes. For one thing, the guy behind the wheel could've easily used the V8 torque of the M3 to avoid spinning.

Sure, the guy did countersteer, but his maneuver came late and was rather shy in terms of the steering angle.

As a result, the M3 Coupe went nose-first into the protection element on the side of the track.
Fortunately, the impact wasn't all that violent, since the Bimmer started skidding at a less-than-frightening speed in the first place. Also, the bumper did a wonderful job at absorbing the impact and, thanks to its elastic properties, the car didn't even show the signs of a crash.

Nevertheless, we hope the driver gave the M3 a thorough check once he managed to exit the track, as this is the type of impact that can have consequences below the surface.

As most, if not all, crashes, this one serves as a quick lesson: while we all have to learn somehow, using a much cheaper car, such as an E30 BMW, is one simple way to avoid throwing your money out the electric window.
