Looks like that crash could have been a lot worse!

I was expecting the camera car to get airborne at first.

Does getting airborne void the warranty too?

That's why you don't drive hard on roads you have never driven on before.

It looks like it may have either lifted or, was just getting on the brakes when he crested that bump. Twitchness+massive changes in contact patch loads+sudden steering inputs upon landing=one bad time. This guy has way more money than driving skill and common sense.

Kind of looks like the GTR driver didn't expect the camera car to pass the slow car, probably had a head of steam built up for the 2 car pass, then the camera car went and passed unexpectadly, GTR driver had a quick decision, brake hard or go for it.
