Simply finishing a race isn’t normally a headline in motorsports, but after the hard season thus far, we were delighted to finish the Nürburgring 6-hour on Saturday. Here’s how it happened…
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.
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.
Say WHAT? We’re doing WHAT? Yes, we’re installed in Box 17 right now, in a 4-door BMW E36 M3, ready to go toe-to-toe with the finest competitors of class V5.
Teams that include winners like Black Falcon, Pixum Adrenaline, and ProSport. Cars like Caymans (many Caymans), Z4s and E90 330is.
Just in case you didn’t see it already on one of the world’s biggest car websites, here’s what went down (or up) at VLN4…
“In all my years at racetracks around the world, there’s one button I’ve never pressed. But this weekend, I pushed it, and I pushed it, and I kept pushing it until I could push it no more.
Even if you live-streamed the whole Nürburgring 24-hour, and didn’t even blink once, you should STILL watch this highlights reel, because it’s EPIC.
Hey BTGers, it’s been a busy couple of days here at the Nordschleife, but we’re finally ready for the biggest race of the year: the 2016 Nürburgring 24 hour!
And this is how you can follow the race, with livestreams, social media, and more!
By now it’s no secret that our little Fiesta ST had a little problem in the second VLN of 2016. But that’s not to say that we didn’t make progress or didn’t have an awesome weekend.
The adrenaline of the first race weekend is almost finished. After a frantic couple of months, we finally lined up on the grid and pushed our Milltek Sports Fiesta ST around the Nordschleife for four hours of VLN mayhem. And it was awesome. Here’s how it went down:
I’m so excited now, and relieved. And happy. With barely a week before the first race of the season, our MilltekFiesta just got a serious dose of Revo power.
As I write this blog post, Peter is driving back to the UK in the 300hp hybrid-turbo’d Revo Fiesta ST after two very hectic days. He’s left us with a car that’s not only faster, but one that’s hopefully more reliable too. Continue reading REVO just added more power to our VLN Fiesta
