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 of his M4 late on in the Nurburgring 24 Hours, Rudi Adams slowly and comically tried to navigate his way to the pit lane, only to just miss the entrance.
Despite causing significant damage to 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!
