which are like pauses in the middle of a sentence so that people know which words get grouped together as phrases in a sentence... (Trolling?)
Joe Fats Harper Oct 12, 2012
Well you know that there are sentences and you put periods at the end of one then capitalize the first letter of the first word of the next sentence so that people can understand what words are grouped together in a sentence also there are commas

@brady, was that a fictional piece? If it wasn't, really, do consider fiction. And GRAMMAR!

Thibault Leroy Oct 12, 2012
@Brady please use punctuation that was hardly understandable XD

Before the caution lap and when everything was about winning no matter the cost

Thibault Leroy Oct 12, 2012
Yeah most crashes look alot worst from the outside
Alex Medvedev Oct 12, 2012
Insane he walked from that I mean from inside didn't look that bad but outside is crazy. Cheers to safety designers

HahHa the guy is running away from a tire at 15 seconds
Michael Dunn Oct 13, 2012
I don't think 458s look that good.
David Liebe Hart Oct 13, 2012
Damn. Just in the first hour of the race

If he kept his line threw the turn the Audi would have just passed by, plus there in different class's the Ferrari should have taken the turn wider to allow the higher class to pass by them
William Downs Oct 13, 2012
@brian... If u think the Audi couldn't have made that turn then u must have never watched the Audi race before, Ferrari shouldn't have changed his line at the last second and it wouldn't have been a Problem, that was the Ferrari's fault all the way
Michael Henderson Oct 12, 2012
I was there for this one and i was pretty close to it as we were campin quite close, unfortunatly i was facing the wrong way when it happened so pretty much missed it all. Bollocks.
Chris Clark Oct 12, 2012
Wow, that tire was so close to hitting the photographer! Crazy
Zeus Mocha Oct 12, 2012
Agreed with Brian. Really crazy crash. One of my favorite that competes in LeMans other then the C6Rs and Italias.
Adam Beiersdorfer Oct 12, 2012
I worked for Audi at this time... Was in the dealership, with this tab playing on all our TVs... An pretty much everyone stopped what they were doing until we saw him get out of the car... Even though we won... Still a letdown for that...
Brian Micinski Oct 12, 2012
Not the Ferraris fault. That Audi was coming in way to fast to hit the turn at the angle he was approaching. The Ferrari was already turning in and had his line. The Audi should have conceded and attempted to pass next turn not force his way intoapex
Alex Medvedev Oct 12, 2012
He probably didn't see him coming I mean its only a practice rub
thelornin Oct 12, 2012
The ferraris fault

Clearly it was that Ferraris fault. He turned in on the HYBRID Toyota Le Mans Prototype and caused it to flip
Dylan Gomes Oct 14, 2012
i remember watching them interview the Ferrari driver after this and he blamed the whole thing on the Toyota driver
David Liebe Hart Oct 13, 2012
Ferrari is just trying to get the most TV airtime by being in the most crashes
William Downs Oct 13, 2012
It seems that every one racing for Ferrari dosnt know how to really race and just thinks they do cause there in a Ferrari... Besides there f1 team of course
Zeus Mocha Oct 12, 2012
You have to check you blind spots.
Thibault Leroy Oct 12, 2012
Wow thats crazy
Majed Ameeri Oct 12, 2012
Ferraris are the leading cause in Le Mans crashes
Paul Somsy Oct 12, 2012
Lol that was pretty damn sad if you watch the full 24h le mans the Ferrari driver says during a pit stop "next time I see that Toyota I'm taking him out"
Brian Micinski Oct 12, 2012
That was clearly the Ferraris fault lol
Dylan Bruder Oct 12, 2012

Alex Medvedev Oct 12, 2012
Poor track design or poor aerodynamics
Justin Brest Oct 12, 2012
Ive never seen this. the only thing I've seen just lift up like that are drag racing boats.
Logan Delony Oct 12, 2012
How the?! That's insane
Adam Gray Oct 12, 2012
Didn't another merc clk gtr do the same thing later that day?
Dennis Choong Oct 12, 2012
This was epic. Remember watching this live on tv & it's really unbelievable how it could just take off without any apparent incident. Major aero design flaw.
Adam Gray Oct 12, 2012
My all time favorite car destroyed in seconds. ;_;
