Things I'm jealous about this week...

Details

I expect zero sympathy for my pangs of jealousy, but I thought this small thing was worth sharing. I'd love to tell you the name of the gentleman showing me his iPhone and Harry's Laptimer readouts, but my simple English brain couldn't understand the complicated Swedish syllables...

Awesome or ridiculous?

Details

This is a Westfield version of the famous Lotus 7. If you think an R500 is fast, let me tell you that this white monster has almost double the horsepower. It's powered by a built-up Cosworth motor and offers the kind of acceleration normally only available to people who wear Ray Bans and inflatable underwear. And call each other names like Goose and Maverick.

It's a what engine in a what car?!

Details

I love cars, I love engines, and I love the Nurburgring. So this Full-HD video pleases me greatly indeed. But what's really amazing about this video is not the tidy driving or massive dildo gearchange - nope it's the swapped engines powering each car...

Viper ACR-X: Onboard 7m03s

Details

At the same time as the Viper ACR edition swiped the Nürburgring Nordschleife production car lap record, BTG also snapped some pictures of this slick-shod Viper ACR-X. It turns out that this was even faster, though it's status as a 'production-based' customer race car means it can't claim any records. Shame, as it's a tidy lap at a fairly crackling pace!

>> See the full video, lots more photos and a wallpaper after the jump >>

The making of the Camaro ZL1 laptime

Details

Fans of big, fat, American muscle cars rejoice! As part of a promotional 'push' on the supercharged Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, GM have released this little video celebrating the time the car spent here at the Nürburgring Nordschleife last year...

Jeep SRT8 Video and Laptime

Details

Those of you with excellent memories may remember that there was a strange hanger-on to last year's Viper ACR record attempt. While the Vipers were busy setting record-breaking laps, a big black Jeep Cherokee would occasionaly blast past. We heard at the time that it was for a possible SUV record attempt. That is now confirmed, and there's an excellent little feature playing on the Speed channel in the USA.

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!
