Insanely Cool Onboard Lap Video at the Nurburgring's Nordschleife
This is one of the closest racing actions and for the longest part I've seen in an onboard lap from the Nordschleife. Watch a Mercedes Benz SLS AMG GT3 dice it up with an Audi R8, Porsche 911 GT3s, and another SLS AMG GT3. They pass slower cars like they were standing but it doesn't always work out as planned. Catch the 911 GT3's spin caused by contact with a Mini at 5:20 as it happens right in front of the camera!
The 911 GT3 was getting too greedy and you could sense it might get in trouble on a few occasions before the accident. It looks like it hit the guardrail a couple of times after the spin. The driver should be all right... unless someone rammed into him at speed after the onboard camera passed him.
