As a rule of the thumb, if you're not aware of all the corners that populate the 20.8 kilometers of the Nordschleife, it's best to admire the view before stepping on that throttle.
If you choose to do things the other way around, you might end up performing the dreaded guardrail kiss, which is precisely what happened to the Mustang Shelby GT350 in the piece of footage at the bottom of the page.
The accident of the Blue Oval machine followed the classic recipe: take one unaware driver, add respectable corner entry speed and mix it all together in Brunnchen 2, which is one of YouTube's favorite turns (want to try and guess why).
You'll only need a few seconds before the odd line dictated by the unusual configuration of the bend and the said entry speed will take the vehicle off the asphalt.
Don't forget to add the grass and you'll instantly end up on the metal plate found right next to the track.
Fortunately, the driver wasn't injured in the accident. The Mustang, however, took quite a beating. From the wheel, suspension and probably steering damage, to the deployed airbags, this pony will need quite a bit of attention before returning to the road. Judging by what can be seen in the video, the electronic nannies were on and the driver simply hand the classic panic reaction, without attempting to apply any technique (or too much steering lock) while trying to save the car.
Sadly, this is the kind of recipe that see you cooking your own meal and having to pay a hefty bill at the end - check out the Nurburgring workers replaicing the guardrail and imagine the bank account of the Shelby GT350 driver taking a few hits.
