Here's one car that didn't last long...


The car is a 1989 Mercedes-Benz 190 Evo1 DTM, entered in the Tourenwagen Classics class by dutch driver Arjan Luttikhuis. Here it is in the paddocks on friday noon.










4½ hours later it was time for free practice. I shot this photo as the car had just started its first lap.










A minute later, it was already time for the safety car... this car had crashed!


Late in the afternoon, as I was heading home, I saw the car again, parked in front of the team trailer, while some crew members were discussing the damages.










Moments later two guys appeared with a cover and 'draped' the wreck. It would remain like that for the whole weekend, so only managed to drive ½ lap in total.

Very good photos of a great venue. That MB is in a sorry state, but reparabele I think. in my opinion you were perhaps the only one with a photo of the damaged car.
