The 2011 edition of the Ferrari Racing Days at Laguna Seca was supposed to be a fun day of merry-making amongst owners of the Prancing Horse.

The weekend-long event featured a number of races involving cars from the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli, including that of the new 458 Italia, as well as the FXX and the 599 XX.

Unfortunately, one owner of a rare Ferrari FXX didn’t have as good a weekend as his contemporaries after crashing his supercar out on the infamous ’Corkscrew’ section of the racetrack. While the damage doesn’t appear to be as serious as it should have been - FXX models are not meant for collisions - the dings and scratches are still noticeable enough to leave a pretty big dent in the owner’s wallet.

He could probably still afford paying for the damage done to his street-illegal sports car, but for a vehicle that could fetch millions of dollars in the market, the owner of this FXX should probably take good care of his prized stallion the next time he takes it out on the race track.

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 More

Its a good thing that the car was not totally wrecked! For a high speed performing vehicle like this, it’s better to slow down a bit. The driver doesn’t need to step in the accelerator pad too much.

haha! He can afford to buy a high speed performing vehicle like a Ferrari FXX and yet he doesn’t have any budget to pay the damage done by his car? Hell! He better surrender himself on the cops!

The driver and the Ferrari is lucky because the driver is alright and the car didn’t get serious damages. However, they are unlucky too because it will cause million for the repair and maintenance while the car couldn’t be able to back on race.

I’m sure the owner of this sportscar has plenty of cash to spend from the rehabilitation. Aside from that, he cannot able to take this to the course again.

Thank goodness that this car doesn’t suffer from a serious accident. Well, I guess what you get from seven airbags are great!

this is not really new to us but its kind of nervousness to know if someone has died or something, Well, its a good thing that the driver is okay.

What a news! I felt bad for the driver. However, accident really come with that sports.
It would be better if you’ll just practice very well so it won’t happen again.

Well, there really isn’t that much damage on this beauty, so we can at least heave a sigh of relief. But they really should be taking good care of these babies when using them.

Even washed with mud, a Ferrari Car still looks awesome. A super fast car like FXX should be treated as a women with love and care.

I really hate those people that destroyed such lovely piece! I feel too bad for the
driver and its a good thing that its just bruises and the car is repairable!

Well, I guess that thing is explainable! Most probably the driver got too excited
about the speed of this car. This is not really a new to us, there are a lot of supercars that has
a more tragic than this one.

Sometimes, I really don’t get these rich guys, they spend millions to get the rarest exotic cars, only to have them crash. Good thing that the damage on this baby is repairable.

Ouch, that certainly is a bad day for that guy. But it looks like the damage here is actually repairable. And since he can probably afford that, it’s likely that he isn’t worrying that much at all.

It usually happens on a car racing event its inevitable. However, its a good thing
that there’s no serious thing happen on the driver and this car got only small bruises!

  (599) posted on 05.30.2011

Well, I guess it saves the pride of this car since it was crashed in the race track and in a public road! BTW, I don’t get you Gerlich,kindly explain. What are you referring this news or crashing of the Ferrari FXX in a race event?
