Porsche 997 GT3 RS crashed!

Today there was an event called Vijverberg Trofee at the TT track of Assen. Halfway during the day a Porsche 997 GT3 RS crashed into the wall after trying to takeover a car via the grass.

The expensive and new Porsche came onto the long main straight way too wide and drove with two wheels on the grass. The car accelerated and eventually drove with all four wheels on the grass. Instead of slowing down, it accelerated trying to take over another car. That didn't work out so the back of the car slipped and the car crossed the main straight slamming in the wall with about 160 kilometers per hour.

The front is completely damaged as well as one of the corners at the rear end. This car will probably declared as ruined. The shock was amazing, the concrete pit-wall actually moved inside the pits. There was glass everywhere. The driver is okay and stepped out of the car with no injuries.
