It all happens so fast that it is the bit hard to see how this driver causes this fatal error (for their vehicle, fortunately not themselves) so quickly.
All that can be seen is the second generation Honda Civic Type R slingshotting its way around the corner on the Nurburgring while carrying the healthy amount of momentum when suddenly, the G forces of a biting front brakes and sideways angle of the apex-seeking front end overwhelm a rear inside tire completely, exemplifying the phenomenon known as lift-off oversteer.
The rear not only lifts (hence the name), effectively removing the contact patch that was helping to corner and brake, and it carries the entire vehicle with it, sending the poor Type R into the 180-degree spin where it ultimately ends up on its roof, the Civic’s final resting place until the careless tow truck comes to apply salt to the hatchback’s many wounds.
Unluckily for the owner, the Civic is the write-off due to the bent A-pillars, which signify that the structure is no longer roadworthy, and most important is the fact that both driver and passenger emerge from a cockpit without any severe injuries to boast.
It is at that moment that the owner’s desire for the personal record in that Civic Type R should have vanished, and if there was any glimmer of hope left in their hearts, and it surely was stamped out when a tow truck came and further ruined the paint and body. At least there’s the new Civic Type R that’s supposedly pretty good on the Nurburgring.
