    Belgian GT3 smashed like no other. I didn't do it.

    I swear, I'm not responsible for it.

    Story short, the guy is alive and in hospital. He was driving on the wet, lost adherance (aquaplaning), and crash under a big truck at high speed. The rev needle was stuck at 6700rpm. Nice.

    It's a F miracle that he's alive.

    A very sad way for such a wonderful car to be lost...

    Re: Belgian GT3 smashed like no other. I didn't do it.

    The due is lucky to come out alive , all the best to him...

    Re: Belgian GT3 smashed like no other. I didn't do it.

    That's the testcar from Porsche Drogenbos isn't it?

    I think it crashed on the road Aalter-Knokke, apparently the guys was driving like a maniac..

    Cair is still in drogenbos. Took the pics today.
    I don'tknow if it's a testcar though.

    Re: Belgian GT3 smashed like no other. I didn't do it.

    all he had to do is press the brake and the car would have slowed down. The car is to smart, I don't believe no needle got stuck. Glad to hear he is O.K.

    Re: Belgian GT3 smashed like no other. I didn't do

    Can anyone tell what kind of tires those are? Look like the Pirelli's or Bridgestones.

    Re: Belgian GT3 smashed like no other. I didn't do it.

    You have to give credit to Porsche for designing a lot of strength into these things. When you consider the speed and closure potential of these things it's incredible so many can walk away.

    One of the worst I've seen with someone actually surviving. Very lucky guy. Give porsche credit for building a safe car. Lesson of the day, don't drive GT3 too fast in the rain. It was a nice car.

    Re: Belgian GT3 smashed like no other. I didn't do

    Look like PS2's to me...if he aquaplaned, then the blame is not lying at the feet of the MPSC's or Corsa's.

    Re: Belgian GT3 smashed like no other. I didn't do it.

    That goes to tell you when it's not your time, it's not your time

    breaking? I think he was breaking as hard as he could. But aquaplaning means no grip at all.

    As for the needle, I saw it, stuck right there between 6 and 7000 rpm.

    Re: Belgian GT3 smashed like no other. I didn't do it.

    here's a closer shot of teh cabin. He was lucky to not be decapitated.

    Re: Belgian GT3 smashed like no other. I didn't do it.

    Ahh - a respray and a new windscreen and it'll be as good as new!

    (Seriously - glad the driver and everyone else on the road was okay).

    Re: Belgian GT3 smashed like no other. I didn't do it.

    indeed this was the official belgian gt3 testcar

    sad to see idiots trying to impress with it on a testdrive... speedo stuck at 155km/h...

    so sad, but glad he's still alive

    Re: Belgian GT3 smashed like no other. I didn't do

    saw a small picture in the news paper a while ago ..
    Loe, same car that we tested ... in the wet .. .on slicks ...

    Very sad ending for such a nice car ...

    Re: Belgian GT3 smashed like no other. I didn't do

    Er... how come the wheel in the left rear isn't the same as the rest?

    Horrific stuff - glad the guy survived. Going at such high speed in the wet just seems a bit crazy.

    Re: Belgian GT3 smashed like no other. I didn't do

    When going for a testdrive with a GT3 one should consider the fact that this is a racecar and not so forgiving as a normal 997. The laws of fysics can't be betrayed on a wet surface.. get a testdrive in a p-belgium testcar

    I think the rear wheel was mounted to move the car around. There's a paper attached to it saying: the wheel is not for sale. So I suppose that the car is.

    Anyone?

    Re: Belgian GT3 smashed like no other. I didn't do

    Hopefully he'll learn a new lesson after all of this.

    Are the seats intact?

    It'd make a nice extra for someone who specced the adaptive sportseats in the GT3...

    Re: Belgian GT3 smashed like no other. I didn't do

    Was he test driving the car???

    The rear half looks relatively undamaged - that's why I was surprised by the different wheel - the right rear seems to be ok....

    Does it mean the engine is still intact!?

    Re: Belgian GT3 smashed like no other. I didn't do

    The rear wheel is a Carrera S wheel,--not a GT3 wheel. Something no doubt they tossed on just to maneuver it.

    Re: Belgian GT3 smashed like no other. I didn't do

    If you look at the interior shot you can see that the reason the roof and windscreen didn't completly crush him was the roll cage!
