BMW Ring Taxi Crashed



oct27 taxi1

Reports (and these shocking photos) are just coming in that the latest Nordschleife closure today did involve the famous BMW Ring Taxi. The exact circumstances aren't immediately clear, but thankfully it would appear that nobody was seriously hurt.

This isn't the first time the BMW Ring Taxi has made headlines on BTG by crashing in the wet, and even in the dry, but I'm sure all BTG fans hope that the paying customers were unhurt. The new M5s used by BMW are pretty impressive beasts when they're on the track. This photo goes to show that they're not too bad in an impact either.

BTGers who know the circuit, and know that car, will agree with me when I say that the M5 could have been travelling in excess of 180kmh (113mph) around the first left-hander after the Karussell.

More news as it arrives...

BTG is NOT a massive operation; it's just me, my camera and my computer. And a lot of help from my friends and family. Thanks!
