• Ferrari 360 owner crashes car at the Palm Beach International Speedway

Sometimes, even the best-laid plans don’t go according to what you’d hope for, and this poor guy found that out the hard way.

Let’s face it; thanks to speed limits, the thrill of driving a Ferrari 360 out on the road is nowhere near what it would feel like if you’re taking it out on a race track.

So to experience the unadulterated power of his prized possession, the owner of this Ferrari 360 took out his beloved ride to the Palm Beach International Speedway to run a few laps. Ever the protective owner that he is, the owner even plastered the front of his car with blue protective adhesive because, well, you never know, what might happen out there and he was being extra cautious from getting his car dinged up.

But like we said, even the best laid plans don’t always go according to the script. In the middle of one of his laps, the driver lost control of his car, crashing its rear end into a wall before spinning out of control and crashing another wall with the adhesive-covered front side.

And as you plainly tell by the photos, that blue adhesive that was supposed to protect the 360 from the supposed dinks and kinks was no match to a concrete wall.

Ouch. Ouch. And more ouch.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

good thing that he pushes his car at the right track. well owning a super car is very temping to push it to its limits, also sometimes we can’t ignore to quench our need for speed, oh well accidents do happens sometimes.

Well, at least he was responsible enough to try speed it up in the race track. I just hate it when those hot car owners speed up in highways. It’s too dangerous considering that it may harm them and other motorists.
