PH has, as you'll have seen,
been at the 'ring today
British X Games winner Liam Doran
. His day ended a little more dramatically than ours though, a red flag for the Destination Nurburgring day bringing the event to a premature halt after a spectacular crash that totally obliterated Doran's tuned Nissan GT-R.
Liam's GT-R earlier today...
Doran was apparently running down the pit straight of the GP circuit alongside a heavily tuned Corvette and, according to the driver of the latter, when he braked for the tight hairpin at the end Doran came past with his foot still hard on the gas. And at that point all the rallycross skills in the world weren't going to save him.
Though a road car, Doran's Litchfield tuned GT-R was - emphasis on the was - apparently running around 650hp and, with no hope of stopping, the car was catapulted through the catch netting and ended up on its roof. Doran was apparently unhurt, despite the fact the car wasn't caged or fitted with harnesses, and is one lucky man given the state of the car.
...and after he somewhat overshot his braking
Like true paparazzi PH managed to sneak a couple of pics of the wrecked car before it was covered over...
