R8 rear-ended on the Nürburgring!

There was a somewhat large crash on the Nürburgring this month that resulted in numerous cars crashing and a beautiful R8 taking the brute force on its tail-end. In the video below you will watch how a slick spot on the 'Ring causes a crash with 10 people injured (6 with minor ones and 4 with major ones). The section of track that it happened on is called "Fuchsrohre," which is not so forgiving. Unfortunately, a Z4 driver was unable to avoid this slick spot and rear-ended an Audi R8. Watch it all unfold at the video below.
