This is the terrifying near-crash when the rear right tyre on the Zyrus Engineering LP1200 Lamborghini finally cried “enough” and sent the Huracan towards the Nürburgring guardrail.
The ensuing spin and unbelievable near-miss was caught on the onboard video system. Quick reactions from Fredrik meant the 1200-horsepower Huracan was saved from a full smash.
The car has been running slicks and the laptimes have been dropping even further during this week’s tests. Unfortunately a seasonal heatwave has settled over the Nürburgring this week, and surface temperatures reached over 58ºC yesterday. Combined with the 1200hp of the twin-turbo Lambo V10, it was enough to send this tyre over the edge.
The car is heading back to the workshop for the near-future, but I expect the team to return again soon. Unfinished business and all that…
