The Nürburgring is widely regarded as the ultimate testing ground for cars and drivers alike. Needless to say, it’s often a breeding ground for excessive speed, overestimation of driving skills and  recklessness, all three of which came together today in an eight car crash in the ‘Ring’s Bergwerk section. Included in the eight cars was a rented Corvette Z06 and the famous BMW M3 ‘Ring Taxi.

When all was said and done, seven of the eight cars were not drivable and one driver was sent to a local hospital in serious condition.

The Z06 was pretty good taste in ‘Ring rental. Well done making international news too.
