Spotted: Time Machine at the Nürburgring

As a guy who drives all the latest sportscars as his job, you might think I don’t care about the older cars in the carpark. But nothing could be further from the truth.

But when I saw this perfectly-preserved Time Machine in the carpark at the recent GranTurismo Events trackday, I just had to share it….

Why you shouldn’t believe everything you see at the Nürburgring

The Nürburgring has long been a fantastic marketing tool for firms and brands all around the world – and long may that continue! But every now and again, somebody oversteps the mark, and the gritty, authentic, Green Hell looks a little cheaper because of it.

Yes, I’m talking about the lady in the BMW and her “puking customer” at Brunnchenn 2…

Was that a penny? Motorcycle U-turns in Foxhole

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, the Nürburgring Nordschleife delivers another dose of stupidity that almost beggars belief…

N24: GetSpeed brought more than a couple of Porsches to this race

This year’s 24-hours of Nürburgring will go down in the history books for so many reasons. While others choose to fix their gaze on the negatives surrounding the 2015 race (speed limits and tougher qualification rules resulting in a 25% drop in entries), I want to look at the positives.

“It’s all about the fans,” enthuses Adam Osieka. “They come first, everything else second. And for them, I think it was a great race.”

VIDEO: Lamborghini Aventador SV goes sub-7

The Lamborghini Aventador is no stranger to the Nordschleife, and has been spotted testing here many times before.

But this video isn’t just any old testing, oh no. This is a wickedly fast  lap that makes the Porsche 918 hypercar look a little overpriced.

Check it out below:

N24: The #underdog crosses the line after 24 hours of racing

Well, we did it. We took a 155,000 km street car and added a little over 1750kms at full race speed around the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Some people said not to, they said it was impossible, a waste of time and money. I think that we, Team BTG and Hipercars.de, proved them all wrong.
