    Classic case of running out of talent?

    Slid into a car carrier?

    Can't wait to hear more.

    Residential street + Grass + Spectators + Ego =


    REALLY good thing the truck driver had the lift gate up as high as he did. Imagine if it had been at 3'?

    I'm going with bad ju ju or karma.

    Has the the ghost of the original Fuchs design, Heinrich Klie, meted out justice for Fooking Up his Fuchs wheels?

    "Win Magnus junk".

    Opening bid on #277: $10k.

    Maybe he should have kept his old tires; that LF has no tread.

    Did a little more reading.... Seems like Frank may have been right... Magnus was doing a bit of drifting in the parking lot, and had to swerve to avoid a Mercedes and slide into the car carrier.

    Drifting?

    Wannabe's: Shenanigans like this on the street are just plain stupid.

    Perhaps he doesn't channel his pent up frustrations toward track events because his lack of skills would be exposed?

    Fine line between an "outlaw" and an idiot.


    Or maybe his beard got in his eyes?

    I was going to go to this "Grand Opening of the Porsche of Mpls" new look to the store, as there was an unveiling of the newly delivered "Purple Rain" GT3 RS also, free food, lots of club action, but I did decide not to go..... ( brother in law is dying and also celebrating his birthday today.)

    The event was a kind of two day soire' with a Rallye advertised. As I sifted thru my friend's photos of the event yesterday evening on f/b, I am glad I didn't. It made me a bit uneasy....a bit sick to see this happen at a public event with a large amount of folks invited. (our local region is about 500 plus active members and 700 strong PCA folks, so am sure a good turn out).

    It is about the 'sport, the car, the people' for me. The 'history, the racing, the victories'. Some of the other stuff is just not gonna ring my bell.

    Sorry Magnus, not happy that your day was a bust. Glad no one was hurt, and only metal and pride suffered.

    And I wish 277 well in the rebuild
    Best Regards,

    I fell bad for MW, but even the best, have accidents, and the public streets are really not the place for these exhibitions ( Racing etc..).

    Some thing like this happen to Vettel or and F1 driver and every one knows hes got some talent, ( i am more alonso or hamilton guy ). He ended up againts the wall, no one got hurt, only ego.

    I am glad MW is ok, and i am shure that Esposito or one of the many talented guys from california will fix 277.
