Poor McLaren!! Don't know where the crash happened, saw on Instagram. It looks like a 675 LT spider.

LFA is infamous for that snap oversteer, I guess the driver doesn’t have enough skill to handle it

Default GM executive crashes Corvette ZR1 pace car!

https://jalopnik.com/gm-exec-is-the-...paign=mondayAM

GM product development head Mark Reuss crashed a 2019 Corvette ZR1 he was using as a pace car at the Belle Isle course, ahead of the second round of the Detroit Grand Prix.

Hit a ragged bump, lost control and crashed.

LOL, that's the ultimate embarrassment . Nothing worse than a car guy crashing his own car in front of a full audience. Can't imagine how he showed up at work the next day.

But it can happen to anyone. These RWD performance cars have rear ends that are very easy to lose. They can catch anyone out (just search YouTube). What's more, we usually see pace cars and think they are taking it easy. Nope, they are always driving on the limit so that the race cars behind can move at a decent pace & cool their engines + maintain heat in their tyres.

And then of course, you have crashes like these

Even if traction control & other electronic safety systems are ON? For the lap, I guess he switched off all systems.

He obviously pulled rank on this one. Pace cars are driven by professional racing drivers not Executive VP's.

Pace cars give the illusion of not being driven fast because the race cars are much more faster and scream their way around the track. Even with the pace cars on the limit, F1 cars cannot go behind the pace car for more than 3-4 laps (yellow flag) without the engines getting heated.

There have been instances where F1 car engines have blown after being behind the pace car for about 3-4 laps and the race resumes.

Arghhhh Amreeekans

A pair of Lamborghinis pulled into a gas station this weekend after previously participating in the Goldrush Rally. With both drivers inside of the gas station to purchase some water, a nearby minivan inadvertently started to drive off with the fuel pump hose still connected. In short order, the hose broke and the pump began spraying gasoline every which way, including onto the Lambo’s engine bay.
