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.. :(
Jan Magnussen Attacks the Nurburgring in a Corvette ZR1
Jan Magnussen Attacks the Nurburgring in a Corvette ZR1. Unfortuantely,
this was a day that the 'ring was open to the public and traffic slowed
down the 638 hp Corvette several times. Still, a great way to see how a
professional race car driver attacks one of the most difficult road courses
in the world.

DTM Norisring - 1996 - Sounds of the DTM - Part I
Another episode of the "Sounds of DTM" videos and I think the final one.
"Why final one?" Well, this car class suffered extinction by the end of
that season, STW didn't do single time trial as fars as I remember and the
"new" DTM...did they go for the single runs? Honestly, I forgot. Somehow
it's nonrelevant as the DTM never sound like this anymore.
Here we have the Top 10 Qualifying for the DTM..pardon...ITC race at
Norisring back in 1996.
This time another special story was written:
Uwe Alzen had to go out as first driver during the single time trial on the
pretty wet Norisring. So that lap time normally won't play any role for the
Pole-Position...but see it yourself.
Enjoy the noise...as usual.
And a little cheers to all users who might be afraid that the 1996
Norisring DT,,,damn...ITC races will not be uploaded. Don't worry, they
will also be here...sooner or later!

DTM 1995 - Norisring - Fisichella crash
During a practice session on Friday of the DTM event 1995 on the Norisring
Giancarlo Fisichella lost his Alfa Romeo under braking - probably due to a
technical problem of his car - and slammed into the barriers very hard.
Fisichella walked away, his Alfa obviously was complete write-off and the
session had to be interrupted by more than 90 minutes. For me it was the
first lesson using a tripod is not always a good idea...
