One spectator has died in a horrible crash at the Nurburgring Nordschleife during a race from the VLN Endurance.
Jann Mardenborough's Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 went over the fence at very high speed, hitting several spectators. Sadly, one of the spectators died, “despite the immediate actions of the rescue crew in the medical centre at the circuit”, as the VLN organizers said. The other injured spectators have been taken to hospital for ongoing medical care, after the crash on the Flugplatz corner.
Nissan commented - “Today's events have been a tragedy. We are all deeply shocked and saddened by these events and our immediate thoughts go to the deceased, those injured and their families and friends.”
