    Note the difference between the cars and bikes when they hit the slippery stuff.

    Anyone else notice that the beemers are the best prangs? The beemer at 7:17 is the guy that almost gets killed for marshalling on track at 8:20. Nope nope nope nope never!

    Karnage!!! The whole time I was wondering why there weren't any marshals and flags...then the yellow one showed up. Guess they don't bother with the oil flag.

    I laughed at 3:40 the guy slides out in fine style then just sits on the ground wondering what happened. Then at 3:50 the next bike just rides slowly off the track and down he goes! Second bike almost looks like an older Concours.

    I've got to stop saying "how stupid can you be?", too many people take it as a challenge!

    So unlucky. That Porsche got it bad too. Not sure how it is in Germany, but pretty sure in ontario if you damage or write your bike off at the track, insurance won't cover it.

    If you do a search you will find other youtube videos with guys running it in Sprinter service vans, a passenger bus, cars with bicycles on roof racks. Insurance here specifically excludes any competition or challenge. Iron butt?

    Youtube comments said they didn't even have marshals until 2017, people with flags were just spectators

    IIRC the Ring is specifically excluded from normal insurance policies

    That's why they trailer it away to a back road and then claim it. lol
