But as the car came to the first floor? "I can only speculate, suppose, but because of the pictures, the vehicle is lifted off at the roundabout with the left side first," says Willi Wismer, President of the Zurich-based driving instructor Association to "20 minutes". This was also the opinion of Bruno Schlegel, Board, Commission, car to the Swiss driving instructors Association. "As seen on the pictures, is the dangers of the Handlebar unrestrained in the gyro. With around 170 kilometers per hour and the force of the impact, the gyro acts like a catapult," he explains.
Also in the flight path of the vehicle – it is a high-powered Audi are both experts agreed: "The car is likely to be flown obliquely upward and then in a helical motion in the house landed," says Wismer. That's especially the cracked flags and the undamaged cars in the yard would indicate, adds Schlegel.
About the cause of the vehicle fire, the experts can only speculate. "If he drove with such excessive speed in the stones in, slashed it, probably the entire floor," says Schlegel.

But even if the cars of the handlebars would not burst into flames, are Schlegel and Wismer sure: "The chances of Survival would have been zero." This they justified with the "scary high" G-forces were in flight and impact with the Handlebars. The accident should not have noticed much. "At such a speed the car travels an average of 50 meters per second. Say, from the impact on the wall up to the landing in the house only about two seconds passed," says Wismer.
The instructor also believes that the accident would have been only seconds before. "According to the popular theory-the formula of the stopping distance on a dry road at a speed of 170 kilometres per hour or about 340 meters. In the case of an emergency braking, there are still around 200 meters."
