The rally legend that is Walter Röhrl who is now 68 years old is Porsche’s test driver and recently he has been giving the Porsche 918 some welly at Germany’s Sachsenring track and in this video it shows that Walter Röhrl loses traction at the top of a hill and instantly the 918 starts to slide out of control.
You can see the skill that Walter Röhrl has as he manages to regain control for a brief moment as he straightens the Porsche 918 up but inevitable happens and he crashes into a barrier.
Its just goes to show that even the best of teh best can still get it wrong and end up in the barrier. Walter Röhrl has test drove nearly all of the Porsches that have come into production and so he knows his way around them.
Thanks to teh chap that sent this in to us 🙂
