    Feel terrible for the guy filming, did everything in his power to both avoid the initial incident and warn others, and then his parked car gets taken out by another driver

    Not been there before but I would have thought you would be supposed to stay in your car in the event of an accident.
    Saying that though he would have taken a fairly big hit whilst sat there too if he did stay in his car.

    First person on the scene

    The first safety rule is don't stop unless you need to. The less chaos at the scene, the lower the chances of a follow-on crash. There are only two reasons to stop: to warn following traffic when a crash-scene isn't visible on approach, or to administer first-aid when someone is in urgent need.

    If you need to stop, please do so with great care. Make sure you are past the accident and on the grass - never stop on the track itself unless totally unavoidable.

    The first person to arrive should warn other traffic. Walk carefully back down the grass, making sure you are well clear of the track in case you cause another accident as people swerve to avoid you. Once in position, get behind the armco. Wave to traffic to slow it down (carrying a yellow flag or jacket is a good idea). Make sure you are well back from the accident, however: waving too vigorously too close to the crash could make matters worse by distracting drivers just when they need to be looking ahead.

    Second person

    The second person should call for help. The phone number of the office at the Start / Finish point is +49 2691 302215. (You'll need a mobile - the trackside huts are locked during public sessions.)

    Most of the marshals speak little or no English, so some useful German phrases follow. All spelt as they sound, not as they are written:

    Accident = Unfarl
    Ambulance = Krankenvargen
    Seriously hurt = Schver verletzt
    Helicopter will be understood in English
    Not hurt = Nicked verletzt
    More German phrases can be found here

    Third person

    The third person to arrive goes to the aid of the casualty IF you can do so safely. If in doubt, get behind the armco and wait until the safety car arrives. Please don't risk being hit yourself.

    Emergency numbers

    Nurburgring office +49 2691 302215 The first place to report accidents
    Emergency services 112 The track office will usually call


    The above are the basic rules regarding incidents......... Although, do not run along the track!! run along after you've jumped the armco.

    So many people stop before the incident! whilst its galant of people to stop, you should only do so if necessary and in the safest possible way..........

    From what i read on Bridge to Gantry page the only real injury was the guy in the TT who went side on into the other car towards the end

    Everyone else escaped without injury apparently

    Yep this happened the day I left to come home.

    By all accounts one of the Porsches had a coolant leak and that's what caused the crash.

    It had been a great weekend up until that point and the 911's had been putting in some amazing laps from Friday all through the weekend.

    Such a shame for all involved.
