Default So who got nailed by the Mustang at VIR?

Looks like a pretty hard hit, hope everyone is OK. Impact is at 16:40

ugh...the whole video is painful. Track position, hand position on the wheel, and then the crash. I feel so sorry for the GT3 owner.

Holy crap. And at that angle I bet the mustang came out of nowhere to the GT3 driver.

71 MPH at impact. Ugh.

Ugh. talk about negative target fixation... What's with the hands up AFTER the hit? SO many other options for that to be avoided. Wow.

Go kart neck brace, more car than skill, mountain biking gloves

There is nothing good about the mustang driving

I don't like random crash videos posted like that here (or on YouTube). You might as well look up Russian dash cam videos. It has nothing to do with racing or High Performance Driving Education.

WRT YouTube why would you post publicly a video to show what a ****ty driver and danger to others you are

That's pretty unbelievable. Talk about Red Mist...…… !! His YT comment...… "and my event ended with a Black Flag when I was unable to adequately slow the car in the Brake Zone"..
I hope the GT3 driver is alright.

Awful... driving too close, too fast, on the gas to the braking zone then braking at 2... did anyone notice this guys seat all over the place? Clearly not installed properly.... I recently sold my 2015 GT3 to get a dedicated (less expensive) track car. The idiots on track were too much to bare...

Hope the GT3 driver was okay...

Classic ‘red misting’ by the Mustang driver, he zeroed in on the GT3 and probably got progressively more frustrated by not getting a point bye after catching the GT3 in a few corners in the preceding 2.5 laps. Perfect teachable moment, to learn to back-off and discuss the issue in the pits/paddock with the Chiefs instead of pushing harder. Feel terrible for the GT3 driver, he had no chance, the GT350 was at 152mph between the 2 & 1 brake marker!

I just assumed he hates Porsche. The hands up means Ĺmy work here is fine.ĺ

in all seriousness, I hope that P driver is ok. Talk about blindsided. Wow.

He certainly committed to that one. Sometimes you need to "Let the Wookiee win."
