A Crazy Stunt
To everybody’s astonishment, the car practically danced off the barriers before coming to a sudden halt. It’s assumed that the saving grace was probably due to the sticky slicks, there were three fitted after all. Thankfully the Swedish driver, Fredrik Sørlie was not badly injured, nor were the marshalls that were taken up by the crash. The crazy collision took place during a standard supercar track day, meaning that there was plenty of additional traffic on the circuit.
Who’s to blame? Well, a little bit of bad luck, to be fair. The Zyrus manufacturing company has been producing the ever fierce Lamborghini Huracán for some time now, basing it on the racing Super Trofeo but with everything turned up to ASBO. It’s got race car aerodynamics, complete carbon bodywork, and a twin-turbo setup on the 5.2-liter V10 for a total of 1,200bhp.
Zyrus has been pushing for this monster to be in the Norwegian Extreme GT Championship for some time now. There most cars run well over 1,000bhp. The development of the car was going to plan. The car set a 6m 48.2s time on a complete lap at the Nordschleife, as well as a 19.1km ‘Bridge to Gantry’ time of 6m 29s with Fredrik Sørlie at the wheel. That’s when things went slightly awry. While a Code Brown incident may have put a dent into things, surely they’ll be back on track in no time!
