Amusing/Amazing

The reality of 1000hp and 350kmh on the Nordschleife...

Details

9ff front

This is the result of "340 to 350kmh" on the Nürburgring Nordschleife in a 9ff Porsche GT3 conversion with over 1000NM of torque. The owner, Knut Knuge, was attending today's Nürburgring Nordschleife Pistenclub trackday. And when he got to the 1.5 mile Döttinger hohe straight, he gave it full gas...

9ff finger

Unfortunately the steel* mounting brackets of the big GT3 wing couldn't quite take monumental downforce being created. I'm guessing that's a couple of hundred kilos at work, judging by the bent 3.5mm plating.

Luckily for Knut (the owner, pictured above), the wing simply folded flat and he could pull over safely. Next on the upgrade list? Definitely a re-inforced wing mounting!

*I suspect they're an aluminium alloy, as do most people, considering their relative weakness and dull matt finish.

Do you enjoy BTG?  

BTG is NOT a massive operation; it's just me, my camera and my computer. And a lot of help from my friends and family. Thanks!
