[ACCIDENT] C6 Corvette Street Racing Fail Caught on Traffic Camera


I am not exactly sure this was a street race, at least not at the outset, but it is an example of what can happen when you unleash the full power of the Corvette without thinking about the consequences of your actions.

At a stoplight somewhere in Estonia of all places, you have traffic stopped three-wide at a stoplight. As the light goes green, the blue car on the inside takes off very quickly, most likely as his lane will end once across the intersection and we see that he does indeed merge left once across.

The driver of the C6 Corvette sees the “rabbit” who is already is two to three car lengths ahead and decides he wants to play as well. You can see the Corvette begins to leave tire marks on the pavement in the middle of the intersection once he punches the accelerator.

As he travels through the intersection, the backend of the C6 breaks traction and crashes into the side of an oncoming vehicle.

And it was all caught on two traffic cameras:

  1. Stupidity, inferior driving skills and cold tires will get you sooner or later. Gives good
    Vette drivers bad association.

  2. Oops, ya my mechanic has told me several times to leave the traction control on unless you have room to play. They will get away from you, but man that Competition mode is pretty friggen cool.

  3. I saw this very thing happen right in front of me a few years ago. Except the Vette hit a highway bridge abutment. I don’t feel sorry for him.
