The Nürburgring in the wet is a tricky proposition at best, and for many it’s your worst nightmare. Just when you think you’ve got the whole 20.8km of the Nordschleife memorised, the weather changes and you’ve got three times as much information to remember. Which corners have a good surface? Where does standing water build up the most? And which small bumps will turn into car-crashing, spin-inducing, hiccups?
It’s nearly time for VLN4, so let’s get warmed up with a scintillating lap onboard the Stilgut GetSpeed Cayman GT4 Clubsport, as resident pro-driver Moritz Kranz chases a (theoretically) far superior Ferrari 458 race car…
The very first seconds of this video show a BMW Z4 making a mess of Adenauer Forst. No big deal. This kind of thing happens all the time, especially on your first lap…

And this is how you can follow the race, with livestreams, social media, and more!
We’re living in exciting times as conventional media (television, magazines, even ‘plain old’ websites) struggle to keep up with social media. And over the next few days I’ll be posting a few options for you guys to follow the 24hrs of Nürburgring, and here’s the first one.
(To be honest, I’m insanely jealous of this, and I wish we had it for our little Milltek Fiesta)
Manthey Racing, the Porsche-owned, semi-factory tuning and racing shop here at the ‘Ring just tuned a Cayman GT4.
Considering that these are the guys who helped develop and build the Cayman GT4 Clubsport, there was little doubt it was going to be fast. But did you ever think it would be THIS fast?
Thanks to a rare collaboration between a Nürburgring driver and a Nürburgring crash-YouTuber, I’m about to share two different views of a perennially common crash.
Yep, the Schwedenkreuz spin, as demonstrated by a lovely BMW E30 only this Monday.
So let’s take a look at the videos:
