This gives new meaning to that old automotive phrase “blowing the doors off of someone.” Sorry, that wasn’t funny, but it had to be said.
The Nurburgring has its fair share of weird stuff happen on it. Like this guy who almost got killed when he got out of his disabled car to try to warn people to slow down. Guys, stay in your car if that happens. There are countless other documented cases of crashes, near misses, and anything else you can possibly think of, but this one is by far the strangest I’ve seen in a while.
This BMW M3-R was cruising down the long straight on the Nurburgring when all of a sudden, the passenger door rips off.
Now you can plainly see in the first part of the video that the passenger door isn’t fully secured. There’s a gap between the A-pillar and the door itself. All that speed and that left hand turn must have cause enough pressure and wind resistence for the door to sheer clean off. I wonder what that guy he passed was thinking?
Another strange one from the king of all tracks for weird shit happening on it.
