Doesn't look like he turned the wheel enough to make the bend even the front wheels weren't light.

Could happen to anyone daft enough to hit a blind crest at speed. Being a twat doesn't have an age limit on it.

Those wing mirrors don't look like standard m3 ones.

all throttle, no skill

It was actually a miracle he didn't have an accident before that.

At 7 seconds he has an inside wheel off the road
At 9 seconds he's completely in the wrong lane, heading towards a blind rise. Any avoiding action would have him instantly off the road.
At 15 seconds he gets the car almost airborn off a small rise, so should know to watch for sudden understeer
At 19 seconds he turns left to take the bend but the sharp rise unloads the front of the car so it stops turning and goes straight, understeering into the boonies.

To be fair, the sudden undulations make it a very tricky road to drive fast. Most experienced drivers know that it takes a while for a car to settle and turn after a sharp rise. The only way to take that last bend at speed would be to be entirely on the left to give yourself some road width to work with but that would only work on a closed circuit.

Bottom line; bad road on which to spank an M3

I have to say if I had access to a M3 at 15 I don't know how responsible I would have been? I remember getting air borne in my 1.1 Peug 106 when I had just passed my test, eventually wrote the car off. Learnt my lesson, was carless for 6 months because of insurance costs, since getting back in a car not had a crash which is my fault and zero points. I'm actually quite thankful high insurance costs kept me in cars with 50bhp till I calmed down with my driving.

When I have a kid old enough to drive they are not getting anything with more than 50bhp and limited to 50mph

Another thing

Did you notice how upright and out of the seat the driver is sitting. He drives almost like he's on a motorbike. With so little body contact and so much tension, there's almost no way he's going to get feedback from the car, or be able to react properly. Once the car oversteered, the tension in his body meant that he simply froze. That chassis must have been screaming that its over the limit yet he keeps it planted until the inevitable happens.

Its really interesting to observe why this particular inexperienced driver crashed the car. Probably explains the high rate of write-offs of high performance cars...power and inexperience really don't mix.

For the whole of that video the kid was nothing but a passenger.
At no point did he look in any way in control of the car.
I agree with the comments re: his position in the seat and the feel (or lack of it) for the car he's likely to have.

He clearly hasn't adjusted the seat from a) his default gangster lean pose or b) his dad's driving position, presumably so he won't know his son took the car out.

If it were for reason b I think his dad might now have some more evidence to go on over and above the backrest isn't how he left it....

Yes he did. At 19seconds the wheel is clearly turned about 40 degress to the left, but the car is heading off the road.

Like someone said, maybe he got some air!!
40 degrees? That's being kind unless I've completely forgotten what 40 degrees is. He looks a total passenger.

He also has a weird 5-to-1 hand driving position and looks like he's sat forward. I don't get why you'd drive on the wrong side of the road (like you were familiar with it) yet completely forget that turn was there? I also don't get why someone who has no idea of how to drive was allowed behind the wheel (if he was).

I can't believe I'm the first to say this sort of comment, but he learnt that driving a real car is different to on a Playstation. No pause and exit option in a real car.

Stupid little twat. He will never do it again though. I mashed my first vr6 up early twenties by being a stupid little twat and by god did I learn.

From the few seconds you see before the inevitable, you can tell he has almost zero real world fast driving experience. Look at the way he is gripping the wheel and leaning as he turns, it looks exactly how someone looks when they are driving on a playstation and I guess that's probably as far as his driving experience extends.

His screams of anguish afterwards are very funny though. I think he should consider himself lucky to be honest as it could have ended much worse, at least he got to walk away and the only injuries he is likely to suffer are those his dad will be inflicting on him for wrecking his car!
