    That's the amazing part. Rollovers? No problem, they just climb out of the car and roll it back right side up

    They are often showing this video in the Devil's Diner at the Nürburgring. Car engineering has come a long way since then.

    Re: Vintage Ring crashes

    I spent some time as a spectator in the late 70s / early 80s at this corner (races and public days). It was always entertaining. I even saw a bus with 30-40 people using the gras and damaging one of his wheels. It seemed to be so easy to be too fast at this corner using a car with about 30-40HP 


    Re: Vintage Ring crashes

    It shows one more time - speed kills people. The cars have been so much slower and the accidents have been so much more mild! heart


    Re: Vintage Ring crashes

    Indeed, today's sportscars have become too quick for the Ring. 

    Also the reason why they're currently removing 2 bumps before the jump at Flugplatz which unsettled the car.

    Maybe if drivers would have a more "intelligent" chassis setup for their cars, this wouldn't be necessary. Many drivers believe that as low and as stiff as possible is the way to go. Then, they shouldn't be surprised. Smiley

    But they're doing it not because of the Tourifahrer, but because the GT3 cars have become too fast, with some of them having a tendency to take off and fly into the spectators.
