This clip was shot by dragtimes.ru in the Dmitrovsky District outside Moscow, the GT-R on the right looks like it’s headed for a normal run on a drag strip when it suddenly breaks to the left, slamming into the end of a guardrail and becoming airborne from the impact. It then proceeds to spin at least five times before finally coming to a halt.
Thanks to its crumple zone, the cabin seems intact despite the intensity of this accident. But the driver doesn’t come out of the car for quite a while… What is he/she doing?
It turns out the driver was taking his/her time by hanging some clothing on a hanger because she is just that smooth, like this sort of thing happens every day. Also, she’s not wearing a helmet, because Russia. We should be expecting a dashcam view of this crash shortly, also because Russia.
At Sendai Highland circuit’s drag course, an event called “D&S night 2013” will be held on the 3rd of August. There will be a gathering of dressed up cars as well as drag cars and lots drag races of cars along with bikes. This is their 10th year of holding drag race event and it’s hot and smokey…obviously.
