It's videos like this that make cry every time. That guy in the minivan sure did a good job saving it though.

I would love to go around the ring one time in my life. Watching videos like this makes me cringe. I read somewhere thats its open to any/all vehicles and you can take a lap for like 10 bucks. Imagine going around with your Camaro and see something as exotic as a SLR or even a Bugatti!

By far my favorite track in Forza 3 and 4 is the ring hands down

The Ring usually has to shut down a few times a day to clean up accidents and for medical evacuations. They average something like 6-8 fatalities a year.

Amazing to see how much crap came off the older cars (and out of) compared to the newer ones. Plus people coming out, doors popping open. Back then European safety glass wasn't as good. Much has improved. Excellent comparison.

quess seatbelts were an option. judging by the number of drivers and
passengers ejected. also notice the spectators siting on the armco.
almost looked like a roll over contest. scary stuff

gramps.

The one that made me cringe the most was this one. Driving with a convertible with passengers, and having seen the previous roll-overs. Yeesh!

Same here, if that beetle rolled it wouldn't be funny, there would have been fatalities.

Might've just been random people...the Nurburgring is still a public toll road.
