2011 24 Hours of LeMans - Corvette C6R Onboard Lap
A Lap and a half aboard the GTE Pro Class-winning Corvette C6R in the morning at the 2011 running of the 24 Hours of Lemans. Olivier Beretta behind the wheel. On the second lap, Olivier pushes too hard trying to catch a BMW with fresh tires and runs off into the tire wall at Arnage. You can see he is starting to really push hard at Mulsanne (It was only his second lap of the stint). Sorry the sound is so loud...Corvettes are just that way!

Owner and IDOT Trash C5 Corvette, 2:00am, 3/18/11
I heard the screeching tires and the impact from my office, and grabbed the camcorder.
Day-amn! This graduate of the Lance Briggs School of Hi-Performance Driving had hit the retaining wall so hard, it sheared the spokes right off the rim of one of the wheels. Steel and rubber doughnut, anyone?
Clear, dry road, gentle curve, wide, well-marked lanes, beautiful, mild 50-degree Friday morning -- how do they continue to do it? Oh, well, as long as they do, you'll see it here first.
I'll let you be surprised with --- the REST --- of the story. Watch, enjoy, and if you're feeling a little schadenfreude for a Vette owner with too much money and too little common sense, you're human.
Texas Mile Corvette Crash - March 2011
The Texas Mile record holder for a Corvette at 224mph!
This Corvette was built by Hinson Motorsports - over 1400rwhp
I don't have the 224mph pass on video but I caught the 221mph pass.
It looks like one of the tires went out and caused the car to veer hard to the right. The driver was ok, he walked away from the crash.
