DTM ITC 1996 - Norisring - Magnussen crash

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.. :(
