Ouch! BMW M2 Competition Crashes On The Nurburgring

The fast lap times set by automakers for production cars and constant testing of new vehicles, combined with heavy doses of publicity, have turned the Nurburgring into  the most famous racing track in the world.

It has also become a must for every self-respecting gear head to go for at least one lap on the circuit. For a small fee, you can take your ride on the 20.6 km (12.8-mile) long challenging course – albeit, at your own peril, as the driver of this BMW M2 Competition found out the painful way tafter hitting the guardrail a few days ago.

The incident happened as the camera was rolling with the high-performance coupe beginning to oversteer at a section of the track (possibly the Brunchen). At this point, the driver pushed the brake for a very short moment and also tried to counter steer. However, it was too late, as the car headed to the guardrail head first, hitting it and lifting a lot of dust from the track that prevented us from seeing the damages.

Nonetheless, it’s safe to say that that the M2 Competition will need to spend some time at the body shop to get back in shape – that is, if the damages aren’t serious (and costly) enough to lead to a write-off status from the insurance company.

Now, the M2 Competition crash is at the 6:10 mark in the video shared below, but you may want to watch the whole clip, as it shows other cars losing their grip on the tarmac. For those asking, that would be a 10-minute break.
