Renault Megane goes for a flight at the Nurburgring

The driver of this Renault Megane appears to be OK after crashing at the Schwendenkreuz section of the Nurburgring Nordschliefe.

The driver appeared to be making a pass on the run down the straight when the car gets its wheels in the grass and turns sideways back across the circuit.

However, instead of just slamming into the wall and spinning in the grass, the car takes off into the air upon impact and then begins barrel-rolling as it comes back down to land.

Fortunately, the driver appears to emerge from the car OK at the end of the video.
