When the bonnet on Rudi Adams' BMW M4 popped open, he had to try and navigate his way back to the pits blind - with incredibly amusing results
For any racing driver, having the bonnet pop open and blocking the windscreen is never a good thing. Usually, there remains some sort of gap at for the driver to see out of well enough to find their way uneventfully back to the pits but in this case, that didn’t happen.
His vision almost entirely obscured by the bonnet, Adams slowly and comically tried to navigate his way to the pit lane, only to just miss the entrance.
The carnage! The chaos!
Despite completely totalling the car in that colossal impact, incredibly the team was able to perform repairs and get it out on track again - once they’d stopped laughing, of course.
Endurance racing - especially at the Nordschleife - really does have it all!
