Fluid spills are probably the greatest enemies of those who engage in Nurburgring Touristenfahrten sessions, with the past Sunday having once again demonstrated a devastating effect such the issue can have on Ring tourists.
Yesterday’s public session saw the McLaren 650S losing fluids all over the track, with this leading to the monstrous crash.
This mid-engined machine, which was on Luxembourg plates, thus caused the ten-car incident that reportedly left ten people injured, out of which four are said to be in the serious condition.
However, it seems that the impacts haven’t lead to any deaths, and at least according to the info available so far.
Alas, the spill happened to take place in the Foxhole, the high-speed section of the circuit, which made things extremely difficult for the drivers who were unfortunate enough to go through that side of a track after the Macca.
The video below shows the mayhem that was the incident. We are looking at the video coming from a Ring Wolf, a man whose pieces of Green Hell footage we have shown you on tons of (happier) occasions.
Notice how Thilo, the guy behind the wheel of this SEAT Leon Cupra camera car, reaches for a stability control button mid-slide and then pulls a hefty countersteering maneuver to keep things under control.
