This footage filmed on one of the public days at the Nürburgring Nordschleife shows the driver of an Opel Astra OPC attempt to outrun a pair of BMWs through the infamous Brunnchen corner, with disastrous consequences.

The front-wheel-drive hot hatch enters the tricky bend carrying too much speed and quickly understeers off the tarmac and into a barrier. Ouch.

Thankfully, nobody was seriously hurt in the shunt, with both the E92-generation M3 behind it and the E36 behind that managing to avoid a collision. That said, the OPC did leave the scene on the back of a flatbed truck.
