Closely to the end of the ITC/DTM race 1 1996 Jan Magnussen suffered a total brake failure and went head on into emergency exit at the end of Norisring's start/finish straight.
According to the data recording he hit the first tire barrier with a speed of more than 160 kilometers an hour...and catapulted that one about 6 meters into the air.
Unfortunately for Magnussen after Rosbergs crash there two years earlier massive concrete blocks with tire barriers were installed at the of that exit.
Magnussen was basically unhurt but his Mercedes probably was a total write off.
That one was the second and final lesson using a tripod at Norisring is not helpful all the time.. :(

DTM 1995 - Norisring - Sounds of the DTM
And here we have the 1995 edition of my "Sounds of the DTM" videos. This
time I wanted to show all 15 participants within the allowed "10 minutes".
In order to do so I had to cut almost everything except the timed laps of
each driver. However I hope you like that footage nonetheless.
Before I forget: I tried something new concerning the encoding in this
video. In case you don't like it/think the overall video isn't that good as
the 1996 video, drop me a note please.
A clip i made a while ago,
crashes from the Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft and a few ITC crashes.
