Bring tissues, because there'll be a *river* of salty tears, some from sadness, some from laughing.

eta: I posted before I'd see the whole thing. There are definitely some human casualties as well. You've been warned.

eta: the clown doing a burnout of his CLUTCH at 23:30 is funny. For me.

no shortage in the world of idiots with more car than brains -

pro guys on closed circuits - those are the chances they take, but I got no sympathy for the idiots who put their own and others lives into jeopardy on the public roads

Kinda drags a bit towards the end - needs a better edit job

V, I'm sending that video to my son, so he can get a more accurate idea of what it is like when he crashes his car in Forza Horizon on xbox.

there is NO rewind button on these cars.

I'm sure the insurance companies have this information, but I'd love to know the rate of sports cars being wrecked compared to all cars. Especially exotic sports cars.

Porsche made 200 959s back about 25 years ago. It was to allow them to enter Group B races. A while back I read a statistic that there were only something like 100 of them left and the remainder had been wrecked. I wonder how many are left now.

Edit: I see there were 337 of them built.

I wasn't present for this particular accident, although we'd been out to watch other stages of that race event (week long). The Targa Newfoundland tends to claim a few cars every year....

admittedly dropping a Ferrari Enzo into the North Atlantic tends to get a fair bit of attention

The race crashes, yeah, that's part of the game. Both the cars and people are prepped for that possibility. Even the spectators should be aware of the dangers. But those bastards hooning on the street, blindsiding drivers and pedestrians, have no excuse.

The stupid bitch causing more than a million dollars damage (3:20) while fucking with her phone, should be shot.

The yellow Corvette guy smoking his clutch (23:38), is not as stupid as the guy with the camera who walks IN FRONT of the car, TWICE. :facepalm:

Vette owners can't drive!

Yes, most of them don't have the skill to match the vehicle's capability. Not even close.

I recognize a few of the tracks they are on from playing gran turismo. The one with the twisty hill that two cars wreck on is a favorite track for me in that game. I've wrecked just like that many times.

Bet they don't lose this one in the parking lot.

That looks like several decades of bad luck.

Looks like DW's 'broken glass' drum finish.
