YIKES! Watch a VW GTI Take Flight in this Huge Nurburgring Crash!

Education can be both spectacular and terrifying. Here's proof.

The video above, supplied by the folks at Bridge to Gantry, outlines how NOT to drive. The incredible flying GTI becomes a bundled-up ball of airbags, broken glass and bodywork thanks to one simple mistake: the driver panicked and lifted.

In case you're ever in the same situation, learn from this gent's experience, and remember that a steady throttle will keep your car balanced. Lift-off quickly and you just turned a small twitch into a big spin and a destroyed car, if not a trip to the hospital.

WATCH VIDEO HERE on WHAT NOT TO DO!

Wow that's really unfortunate, seems like it was his personal vehicle which at that point is heavily damaged, maybe totaled. Not sure if insurance will cover track damage.

@t_gun regular car insurance doesn't cover that, not sure if there is anything that does, i doubt it.
