Pagani Huayra BC pushing for Nürburgring lap record?

Let’s face facts. The Huayra doesn’t need any help to sell units. And the car that we can see testing, the Huayra BC is a total one-off. It’s sold-not-sold already, and merely serves as an advertisement for all the awesome things Pagani do.

So why is it here at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, running the latest Pirelli PZero tyres for a whole week?

Maybe we should ask the driver…

EVENT: BBC TV wants to film RingTools and their owners NEXT WEEK

If you’re “local” to the Nürburgring, drive your own RingTool but can  still speak English, then keep reading!

VIDEO: Pagani Huayra BC testing at the Nürburgring

Pagani haven’t been to the Nürburgring in an official capacity for many years now.

(Excluding this weird and wholly unsubstantiated story from last year that’s still not been confirmed)

So it was a big surprise for me to see this Huayra BC hit the Nordschleife today in the official “Industrie Pool” testing session… Continue reading VIDEO: Pagani Huayra BC testing at the Nürburgring

CRASH: One biker walked away, one rode away.

I’d like to think that by sharing these videos, somebody, somewhere might put down their stopwatch and decide NOT to go chasing a laptime in the middle of an incredibly busy Sunday of Nürburgring Touristenfahrten. Continue reading CRASH: One biker walked away, one rode away.

VIDEO: Onboard Alfa Romeo Giulia 7m32s *finally* goes live

For the last year and a bit, the internet has been alive with claims of Alfa Romeo’s newest super-saloon blasting the Nürburgring in a laptime that would make BMWs M3 blush.

But finally, the men from Milan have released their onboard video. Continue reading VIDEO: Onboard Alfa Romeo Giulia 7m32s *finally* goes live

VIDEO: New 991 GT3RS rental crashed at Aremberg

It’s no surprise that rental cars get crashed at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. But when that rental car comes with a liability (or excess) of €150,000, then it’s news.

REVEAL: New Milltek-LiteBlox-TeamBTG for the Nürburgring 6-hour!

As I hinted at in my previous BTG live-broadcasts, we are super-excited to reveal that TeamBTG is being strengthened by the arrival of none-other-than Tom Onslow-Cole, and a mid-season-switch to a TMG GT-86 Cup car!

BIG thanks to our great sponsors Milltek Sport, Lite-Blox, and our guest driver JF Brunot! Even bigger thanks to TMG and Ring Racing for making this happen.

SPOTTED: Five-door automatic Megane RS test mule

Ignore the GT badges on the front of this Megane, spotted testing on the Nürburgring Nordschleife this week. Instead look at the wheels, the brakes, and those bolt-on arches.

Looking from the rear, those tyres are at least a 235 size, maybe bigger.

Oh yes, that’s mostly like a test-mule for the Megane RS. A new RenaultSport machine, and (I’m told by those in the know) a strong contender for fastest-ever front-wheel-drive to ever hit the ‘Ring. Continue reading SPOTTED: Five-door automatic Megane RS test mule

VIDEO: VLN6, very M3, much dogfight, such sadness.

Well, we did it. Kind of. Thanks to Milltek and Lite-Blox, we ‘upgraded’ from our broken and fire damaged Fiesta ST to a 1994 E36 M3 and went toe-to-toe with the modern (and not so modern)  competitors in class V5. Continue reading VIDEO: VLN6, very M3, much dogfight, such sadness.
