Rainy drag race ends with brutal Nissan GT-R crash [video]

She escaped without injuries

A Nissan GT-R was totaled after the driver lost control of the AWD supercar on a soaking wet drag strip.

Organizing drag races on an extremely rainy day is far from being a smart idea but it still happened in Moscow, Russia at an Unlimited 500+ drag race event. Although it was pouring outside, the woman driving the GT-R decided (for reasons beyond our understanding) to stop the wipers right before the start of the race.

Almost ten seconds into the race, she loses control of the Nissan GT-R and has a brutal frontal collision with the metal barriers. She was lucky enough to get out of the car without any injuries, even though she wasn't wearing a helmet and her entire outfit was more suitable for going to the mall, not drag racing.

I think she was multitasking, you know the type that chats on the phone or texts while driving.

No guard rails in the left lane until the 1/8th mile? Brilliant. And no helmet? Wow. I have not seen a lot of 'race car drivers' exit carrying their purses!! LOL

I think she was really lucky for the crash maybe wasn't as violent as it may seem. The barriers look extremely flexible, and a great load of energy was also dissipated with all that spinning, which wouldn't have happened had it been a purely frontal collision.

haha....loved how she exited the car with her handbag and jacket like nothing happened. Next stop, lets go to the mall!! No helmet or any form of racing gear(probably wearing a high heel!!). She is one of the luckiest person to escaped that kinda crash with no injuries. God was obviously sitting beside the passenger seat that day.

As soon as she takes her hand off the steering wheel to put on the wipers she loses it. They did wipe once just before the crash BOOGIE WOOGIE if you look closely.Maybe she got distracted with trying to turn them on.

Good spotting. Just saw that. Makes me think she may have tried to activate the wipers during the race. Still incredibly foolish to continue racing in a high performance car such as a GTR in such atrocious conditions with no wipers running. She not only put her own life in danger but that of her competitor as well. She could have taken out the other car she was racing against and it all could have ended up differently. Wearing no helmet just rams home the carelessness of the driver.

Considering it gets over 100 km/h under 3 sec, she must have had around 150 km/h (in rainy conditions) while hitting the barriers. And she left the car as if nothing happend. How safe is this car?
