    Re: Ouch....

     That's my least favorite corner of the entire N'Ring. I find it to be very tricky and to be always on the verge of slipping if I take it slightly too fast or not in the perfect line . I loose quite a bit of time on that one, but have saved my car until now Smiley

    Sad for the car and the guy. He did not drive like a maniac

    Yeah, that's a tricky corner.  In fact, I thought the really tricky one was the next corner until now.


    Re: Ouch....

    am I right that if the car is registered in Germany the "vollkasko" insurance will pay like normal ? - or is it like in Switzerland once you are on a track with a normally registered car the insurance is voided ?

    True, Gnil - but in this case I'd say "unforced error".  I agree with you that the guy was not driving like a maniac (read: not too fast), but if you look closely you can observe that the right rear tire goes onto the green a little bit (see dust at 40/41 sec) - that was it Smiley

    @Bjoern: depends on the fineprint - indeed a lot of german insurance companies provide full coverage also for Touristenfahrten and Trackdays Smiley If that wouldn't be the case I'd get a Cup-Porsche to play with rather than a streetlegal GT3 Smiley

    Re: Ouch....

    Would that be enough loss of lateral traction to cause the slight rotation, or do you suspect he lifted just a little? 

    It looked (to me) like his turn in was good.  How would you seasoned drivers resolve this?

     I didn't see it the first time. You are right . And a wheel on the grass with that angle / speed is one mistake too much Smiley

     The guy that filmed this was supremely calm !  He just pulled over turned on his indicators and got out to check. no reaction no nothing. 


    Re: Ouch....

    oups, yes ouch and yes he did get the right weehl on the dust. Got lucky could have been worst.

    Re: Ouch....

    Two questions to GT3/NBR experts:

    1. What speed was he doing at that point?
    2. The electronics of the GT3 didn't seem to intervene at all. Can the driver switch off so they never act under any circumstances, or are they so useless?

    Re: Ouch....

    I would say it was a .1 car with no electronics.  

    Even with sport button on (wider slip allowed), it does much better a$$ saving than that
