    observations:

    • surprisingly low amounts of damage
    • if a car is crashing on the Nurburgrung there is a 75% chance it's a BMW
    • fuck riding a bike on the same track side by side with cars
    • that 5th gen hatch... ouch!
    • Smart cars look silly spinning out
    • if you want to have an entertaining day at The Ring, locate the guy who filmed all of this and pack a lunch

    yeah i lol'd at the smart car.

    and most of the people (sans the last) really didnt have much damage. seems like most people crashed in the same way in the same spots too. that one corner like 90% of the cars oversteered lol

    did the car oversteer, or did the driver not know what they were doing?

    the driver made the mistake, all of them put the car into oversteer.

    either way, the car still oversteered lol.

    So many people wreck on the north loop that they actually fine you for doing so.

    If you wreck, they'll charge you for repairing the surface, the guardrail (if there was a rail where you beefed it), and then the "loss in profits" from your wreck-induced closure.

    IIRC, 1000€ per section of guardrail you messed up.

    I decided that I didn't want to wreck, so I didn't. lol.

    So does the city, Take out a pole or a guardrail... watch what your insurance pays.

    whats the difference?
