The Wochenspiegel Ahrweiler are reporting that a 16-year-old boy crashed at Kallenhard yesterday while his Mum was waiting in the carpark. But that’s not the whole story…
The sorry tale begins on the A61 autobahn yesterday morning where a speedtrap caught the Swiss-registered car speeding at 215kmh in a 130kmh zone. It was a mother and son on their way to the Nürburgring…
Faced with a €1260 fine and a possible 3-month driving ban in Germany, the intrepid duo continued to the Nürburgring Nordschleife to join in the final day of touristenfahrten 2015.
Apparently not satisfied with the results of the trip thus far, next the Mum allowed her 16-year-old son to drive the Chrysler Crossfire on the track for an undisclosed number of laps. I’m going to guess around 0.5 of a lap (he actually did several laps, later reports confirmed). Because numerous sources are reporting that this “sportscar” crashed at Kallenhardt, while poor old Mum was waiting in the car park.
Needless to say, the 16-year-old driver couldn’t produce a driving license (this is not America) and this Thelma and Louise tale came to an end.
As a reference, I’d highly recommend researching the well-known British textbook Viz, specifically the Spoilt Bastard archive.
