With all-wheel drive, launch control and a dual-clutch transmission, the Nissan GT-R may be easier to manage than most supercars. But that doesn't mean that dragging one on a wet strip is a good idea.

Filmed at the Unlimited 500+ drag race in Moscow, Russia, this video depicts a pair of GT-Rs going head to head. But things didn't go quite as planned when the driver of one lost control of her twin-turbo supercar. We'll let the video below speak for itself, but thankfully it appears no one was hurt – an outcome that seems particularly remarkable in light of the fact that it appears that the driver was not wearing a fire suit or helmet.

        For the rush, I suppose. Because at any moment you could lose control and... well, there it is.

      Drag racing thru standing water...brilliant. I feel sorry for the car.

      Barrier did its job - she's lucky she was in the part that HAD a barrier! And no helmet, in the rain.... Love how she gets out and pulls out a purse like she just parked at the mall.

      Amazing that the drivers door just opens up. And why, you ask, did she wait so long to get out (assuming that this is a LHD version and she was, in fact the driver)? Well she had to get her purse and her jacket of course... ya know... 'cause it's raining... and you gotta have your purse. Wow... just wow...

      Let's see. Totaled the car, engine spewing flammable liquids. Hmmm, what am I forgetting. Oh yeah, I need to grab my dry cleaning here real quick. Phew, I knew I was forgetting something!

      Ummm...I know these are GT-Rs (with world-reknown traction) and I know most will write this comment off as "...it's easy to say that, in retrospect..." but why in THEEE HELL are they drag racing in the rain and in standing water?!?! I'm not sure if that's common practice, but this is the first time I've seen that...ever. Even when the video started rolling, the first thing I noticed was that it was raining, because it was so out of place. SMH.

      She turned off traction control? Wonder how fast it was going before the crash. She just walked away unscathed.

        Based on the rotation following the first impact she was moving pretty quick.

      Just about the entire front end knocked off a GT-R but she has to make sure her purse is ok.
