I was gutted to miss some of the big trackdays this August and September, (although I could hardly turn down invitations to race at both the Zolder and Barcelona 24h events).
Luckily for me, my schedule allowed me almost unfettered access to possibly the biggest and best trackday of the year.
Amazing cars, largely fast and respectful driving and only a couple of big accidents. All under a GLORIOUS deep-blue sky that made August look winter.
What follows is simply a gallery of photos by frozenspeed and myself.

I think this video has your answer, and fair warning… it might get emotional for some of us die-hard Nürburgring fans…

As the title says, I was fortunate enough to be introduced to the iRacing guys at the second-ever Sim-Racing Expo last weekend, and they were kind enough to let me have a quick go on their rig. Here’s what I found out!

Before you watch this video, I just want to let you know that somehow, amazingly, the driver lived. Reports and eye-witnesses at the scene reported he was sore, bleeding from broken glass, but could be categorised as “walking wounded”.

This is a hot topic at the Nürburgring, and has been for decades already. But living as we do, in the Golden Age (or Wild West) of social media, I have a big question for you…
Continue reading BIG QUESTION: Hide the public crashes? Or show them to the world?
About a month ago, the internet was set alight with a wholly unsubstantiated rumour that the new Alfa Giula QV had done a 7m49s laptime of the Nordschleife. I rolled my eyes and ignored it.
