[motorcycle.com] - Lets Watch Some Motorcycles Crash At The Nurburgring

The famous Nurburgring is known as one of the most dangerous racetracks in the world. With its high speed nature, mixed with a couple tight turns that can throw off the best pilots, it takes a brave soul to pilot a vehicle there at speed. Oh, and don’t forget the guardrails they’re awfully close to the track. Making matters even more precarious is the fact that cars and motorcycles are allowed on the course at the same time. So not only do you have to worry about the track, you also have to worry about not getting hit by a young buck in a Porsche. That said, get it right and the Nurburgring Nordschleife is an absolute thrill to experience. Get it wrong and you’ll be crying all the way home if you’re lucky.

This compilation is filled with poor saps who got it wrong. It’s easy to do, as there are a lot of turns to remember, some of them require very careful line choices, you’ve got other cars and motorcycles racing around you, and in some cases it’s raining. No pressure, right?

Most of the crashes in this video occur at the same turn a tricky and slow late apex left preceded by a quick right-hand sweeper, preceded by a long straight before that. You need to be patient with your apex, but for much of the lap beforehand you’ve been hauling the mail. In the case of the riders here, once the late apex approaches they either panic brake or stand the bike up. The former end up tucking the front, while the latter jump the curbing. If they’re lucky, the grass is dry and they can ride off. Otherwise they end up spinning around on the wet grass, waiting for the embarrassment to end. Luckily all the riders shown were fine, though some of them had to find other ways home.
