Poor Cruze. :(

I do think it's funny, though, how only two laps in practically everyone in the race is either crashing, having mechanical problems, or is on fire.

That just looks like a giant failure of a clusterfuck on the part of the race stewards.

#1, WTCC FTW, yo.
BTW Pau is a real legend, racing in the town started in 1920s and IIRC the first race named a 'Grand Prix' passed through the town. That was back in 1902 I think. One of the most difficult parts of the circuit is where the black Seat retired, there's a fast left-right combination that dumps the cars straight into a shicane. The shicane is pretty much blind, being hidden by a drop in the circuit and it's sorrounded by kerbs, also the braking zone is actually IN the fast right hander. August Farfus rolled his BMW there in 2007.

It concerns me that the door apparently popped open on the Cruze from that relatively minor collision.

I am amused though, by the fact that all the other Cruzes seem to be fine while the Ultimate Driving Machines fall apart.

#4, It appears the BMW struck just ahead of the door hinges, which could explain why the door popped.

The fucking wheel came off the Bimmer... that was not a minor collision.

#6, Yep. It was a glancing collision, due to the expert evasive maneuvers of Franz Engstler in the BMW, but it was still a VERY hard collision. If the BMW had been about two feet further to its right, both vehicles probably likely would've had to have been flatbedded off the track.

Also, it seems Engstler was going 107kph at the moment of impact, so I'd agree that the Cruze fared pretty well.

That was one hell of a first lap. I'm surprised nobody got killed. Imola 1994 flashed before my eyes when all the carnage unfolded.
