Yeah saw this yesterday. Only 4 cars got out including a BMW and the rest Mercedes. The 911 was not to blame there's no way he could stop around that blind corner in time.

Glad everyone was out ok.

That stupid track is where the BMW was put on the map in the 90s, at least for Asia part of the world.

I'm talking about that particular section. Did you notice how narrow it is?

I am surprised this thread didn't mentioned the dead motorcycle candidate from UK.

almost all the cars crashed on day 2 were repaired on the next day.

In all fairness, GT cars tend to widen each generation, so you might be on the money with that. But on the other side of that coin, maybe GT racing has outgrown Macau.
