Destination Nurburgring Report

Details

This month we were blessed with not one, but THREE private trackdays on the Nordschleife. First came the event from Trackdays.de, and then came two days with Destination Nürburgring. Here you'll find a few shots and videos from the latter event.

With well over 200 cars present, it was undoubtedly one of the best-attended events of the whole Nürburgring calendar. Only 150 cars were allowed on track at once though, and despite a crowded car park and a lot of talk, the track wasn't too crowded. OK, the first half-hour of open-pitlane was more like a TF session than a trackday, I won't lie - but within the hour it had settled down comfortably.

As is becoming normal for the DN events, the quality of metal on display was staggering. Real supercars being driven on a real racetrack. Checkout the bugs and brake dust on the Lambos and Ferraris! Without doubt the fastest car present was being driven by Michael Vergers on behalf of UK company Ultimate Trackdays. He was giving taxi laps in a Radical SR3. Really. Video below...

When he last drove a radical here it was the SR8-LM on its lap-record run with street legal tyres and trim... but with the lower-powered SR3 and slicks, he reckoned he could go even faster. Bloody amazing stuff!

Unbelievable how planted the car is through the corners! Not much braking required really, just a bit of lift-off in some corners and full throttle for most of the lap!

142mph, no lift, through sx. Just wow.

Michael Vergers stylee...

...where lifting for Schwedenkreuz is like squatting for a pee!

That must be sensational, slicks and downforce, amazing!

I like the first photo. Neat contrast between the two cars!

On the one hand, you have the lightning fast, perfect handling masterpiece of engineering that in the hands of an artist driver inspires awe and dominates the viciously winding serpent's tail that is the Nordschleife.

On the other hand, you have a Ferrari.

I've got a 97 1.8, so it's not all flattery, add in some vanity/bragging /other lowly motives... :P

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!
