This footage captured at the Nürburgring Nordschleife shows the driver of a Volkswagen Golf smartly avoid a pile-up seemingly caused by an oil spill … although the BMW 3 Series driver behind her wasn’t so lucky.

The short on-board clip shows the Golf driver hit the anchors as she spots three stationary cars on the outside of a corner. Despite seemingly hitting an oil-spill, she manages to control the hatchback, manoeuvring off the track.

But an E46-generation BMW 3 Series then comes sliding past – within inches of the Golf – at quite a rate of knots, before clattering into the stationary Toyota 86. Cleverly, the Golf driver then quickly escapes the crash area.
