At least this isn’t a Porsche. This Brazilian-driven BMW Z4 GT car appears to suffer from some panel misalignment. According to Sergio Jimenez, the featured driver who amazingly chimed in on the Facebook comment thread, this happened in 2013 at Zolder in the FIA GT series. Today Sergio drives both stock cars, and participates in the Blancpain GT series. Did Sergio make the jump to stock cars because of the lack of doors?

While the video is a riot, it’s definitely worth clicking through to the Facebook page for the comments. Sergio, the driver kicking the door closed, proved to be a very good sport, and has actually added to the conversation. His take on the situation is below:
I will tell you shortly how was.
In that day,me and Ricardo Zonta were running with the BMW Team Brasil in FIA GT 2013 in Zolder.
We were in P6, what i remember,and was a very difficult year for us because the BOP in that year was very difficult for BMW .
After a very good Start and the pit stop was running very well, when i should closing the door, the door did not close, as you can see. After that i went with my shoulder and… Nothing. My thought in that moment was only one: I WILL CLOSE THIS FUCKING DOOR . Was my determination was only this,was my focus!
Today is funny, but in the moment i was very piss!
Anyway,is a good story to tell to my grand children haha.
