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 C7.R Crash at VIR - Collision with Richard Lietz - 16g impact!! 8/23/14
Oil was laid down on turn three of VIR by an Aston Martin in practice,
resulting in Richard Leitz losing grip, spinning out and crashing into the
wall. The C7R of Jan Magnussen also spun, colliding with Leitz's Porsche
in a 16g (7g lateral) impact. The impact was the drivers side door or Jan
hitting the drivers side door or Leitz. Jan Magnussen got a concussion,
while Leitz broke his arm. This crash could have been a lot worse without
the technological advancements in safety that have been achieved with the
Corvette Racing C7R.

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 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...
