Surprised Surely getting familiarised with a new car would have been a good idea.

No mechanical sympathy at all for that poor tight new engine Sad

What a shame; it was a beautiful car Sad

Immensely powerful car and an unforgiving circuit - maybe not the best combination. nooo

Glad that no-one was hurt.

Norwegian number plate, may I echo what Steve B has posted, incredibly quick car, crazy circuit, owned for 3 days which was probably covering the trip down there........not a lot of thought gone into that methinks.

Got to admire the guy. I have no idea how it went wrong, but good for him. Car taxes are horrific in Denmark, so he must be keen.

They may well have been over-exuberant and got caught out, but fair play : at least they took it out for a play rather than locking it in a warehouse in a "collection" of appreciating assets like all too many other examples of limited production pork. Thumb

Fair play, I say good effort.

You don't know where the limits are until you cross them.

Yep, he has his own GT2RS record now. 3 days.

At least he was okay and everyone got to see one in action. worship
