World's Luckiest Squirrel Outruns A BMW On The Nürburgring

All this cute, little furry creature wanted to do was run on the Nürburgring. That’s all he wanted to do!

Then a BMW driver came along, and fortunately twitched just in time to avoid pulverizing the little guy with his car. It was an expert mid-corner twitch, too, as he quickly regained control of the sliding car afterwards.

Thanks, BMW! We wouldn’t want another sad grille full of animal story on these pages.

In the meantime, I think this must be a new Nordschleife course record for “fastest squirrel.” Did anyone get an overall ‘ring lap time for the squirrel to make it official?

It also looks like it shit a couple squirrel biscuits as well, or was that smoke from burnin’ squirrel pads?
