lotus Elite crashes in classic action day

This video highlights the dangers of high speed racing, if you don't know what you are doing. 

I generally have no idea what this driver thought about was going on! He seems even not to attempt half of this corner and heads straight across the chicane section. Yeap, it is no Mario Cart shortcut, and the unlucky owners end up going straight into the tyre wall. Pause around 0.35 to see the damage done, although even with the bumper hanging clean off this car doesn't look much worse than when it started. Battered and leaking, this is now how you want to see your Lotus Elite!
