opel Kadett crashes and burns on this German racecourse

The Opel Kadett looks good in a straight line, but not so good sideward on its own rear end. 

This could have been a great rear wheel drift around this corner. Unfortunately for number 78 here, he takes things too far and the front end goes straight into the hill next to the track. What happens next is both astonishing and terrifying. The driver is very lucky not to fly straight down that hill and is saved the indignity of a long, painful crash by the barrier. Fortunately, he makes it out okay, but this is a red flag situation if I ever saw one!
