The crash site was apparently 500 yards from the charity event. I've rarely seen car crashes from Super GT events worse than this. It just seems unrealistic to pull out onto a public road and in 500 yards cause a car to be so destroyed that two people can't make it out and perish in a fire that consumes the car starting from one minute after the crash. Either the fuel system in this car was modified/manufactured incorrectly, as Boomer said the steering system had an issue (seen this in reports too), or Porsche simply made a coffin on wheels. If the latter, shame on Porsche for designing such a deathtrap if that's all it takes. I'm not saying the car blew up at 40 mph, but something does not seem right. Is the car that fast and dangerous and was the driver that inexperienced as to cause this to happen? I doubt the latter. Or, am I underestimating the danger, speed, and the skill required, in regard to this car? The latter is possible. I just find it all a bit strange.

If true, this is nuts.
