VLN1 was an incredible spectacle. Not only was the weather unusually perfect, but the action was none-stop. For the spectators, this was simply awesome.
For the drivers, it was hectic, chaotic and very hard work. While we made it through the maelstrom in our GT86 and scooped a victory in the TMG GT86 Cup (full story later), other drivers weren’t so lucky. Continue reading VIDEOS: Watch this M235i driver LEGITIMATELY lose his shit
After the heart-lifting golden sunshine of the Nürburgring’s first weekend of opening, it should be no surprise that the second week was completely the opposite.
Sure enough, moody dark clouds, full of morale-sapping drizzle, hung low over the Eifel mountains on Saturday as over 100 VLN racing cars took to the Nordschleife.
And #TeamBTG was there with our new GT86 Cup by Toyota Motorsports GmbH. Continue reading Driving the VLN Test & Einstellfahrten: wet and wild
Would there be gravel, wouldn’t there? It was the question on every fan’s lips after this story appeared on BridgeToGantry.
As one of the most-crashed corners of the Nürburgring, and a constant feature of Nürburgring Youtube channels, the safety of Brünnchen is important for the reputation of the Nordschleife.
But after a few modifications, the final version for 2017 has arrived, just hours before the first VLN cars hit the Nordschleife (including the TeamBTG GT86 Cup machine). Continue reading Brünnchen mods finished – VLN racecars hit the Nordschleife tomorrow
Whether it’s cars overtaking on the wrong side of the track in public driving, race cars ignoring double yellow flags, or pedestrians narrowly avoiding crashing cars, the Nürburgring is clearly dangerous.

The VLN championship organisation have just confirmed their 2017 race dates, and in doing so they’ve cemented a large part of the Nürburgring calendar. Continue reading 2017 Nürburgring Race Dates confirmed (VLN, N24, and more…)
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.
Continue reading REVEAL: New Milltek-LiteBlox-TeamBTG for the Nürburgring 6-hour!
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.
Thanks to the support of Milltek Sport and Lite-Blox, Luke and me are back on the grid!
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.

The Nürburgring in the wet is a tricky proposition at best, and for many it’s your worst nightmare. Just when you think you’ve got the whole 20.8km of the Nordschleife memorised, the weather changes and you’ve got three times as much information to remember. Which corners have a good surface? Where does standing water build up the most? And which small bumps will turn into car-crashing, spin-inducing, hiccups?
