The accident took place at the Michaelskreuzrennen in Switzerland, not far from Lucerne. Seen from multiple angles, it seems that the driver simply misjudged the length of the corner and wound up effectively trying to cut it. Their attempts, though, were stopped quickly by the low concrete wall, which did some serious damage to the front of the Ferrari.

Although there is no indication as to the condition of the driver, the accident does not appear to have been excessively violent. Fortunately for everyone involved, the incident happened right in front of a marshalís post, and they were on the scene quickly to treat any injuries, serious or not.
The damage to the car, the driverís wallet, and their ego will likely all have been quite serious, unfortunately, and the accident shows just how risky it is to drive a classic at a motorsports event. Anything can happen, and the stakes are only higher in older vehicles.

The Ferrari Testarossa was produced for 12 years, from 1984 to 1996, and was powered by a 4.9-liter flat 12. Rated to produce up to 385 hp (287 kW/390 PS) at 6,300 rpm, and 361 lb-ft (490 Nm) of torque at 4,500 rpm, though, itís not hard to understand why the driver was tempted to try and push their classic car.
