The Nurburgring is a daunting challenge for even experienced drivers and riders. Check out nearly nine minutes of cringe-worthy crashes filmed at one of the most dangerous and difficult race tracks in the world!

BERLIN, Germany - A spectator was killed and several others injured when a Nissan GTR flew over the track safety barrier and landed upside-down among the crowd.

It happened during the first race of the season in the VLN Endurance championship on March 28 2015 and involved a car driven by Britain's Jann Mardenborough.

DRIVER NOT HURT

Several fans were hurt and one died later at the track's medical centre. An unspecified number of injured were taken to hospital.

Nissan said Mardenborough, 23, was not hurt and exited his car unaided before being taken to hospital for an examination.

The race was stopped and police opened an investigation.

Back in 2013 a 55-year-old driver died of a heart attack while racing at the same track.
