VIDEO: Onboard the Nordschleife Backwards in the 300hp RingMini

Achim’s RingMini is a #RingTool that most regulars have already met. Generally it only emerges on to the Nordschleife when it’s wet and slippery. Continue reading VIDEO: Onboard the Nordschleife Backwards in the 300hp RingMini

PHOTOS: Backwards around the Karussell with the RKA

This morning the Rally Köln Ahrweiler (RKA) hit the Nürburgring Nordschleife backwards. It’s something we’ve all been looking forward to the whole week.

And the drivers have probably been excited about all year! Continue reading PHOTOS: Backwards around the Karussell with the RKA

Rally Köln Ahrweiler hits the Nürburgring tomorrow

The leaves are dropping off the trees, and guys in orange jackets are gathering around random road junctions in the Eifel. It can mean only one thing…

[UPDATE: I ADDED A SECOND VIDEO AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE]

Visitors to BTG will be more than aware that yesterday rally cars were driving backwards around the Nürburgring Nordschleife. I posted a whole mess of photos here.

But I was concentrating on the area between Eschbach and Karussell. YouTuber Nordschleife96 put together a much more complete compilation reel and uploaded it last night. Including some great action (and sound) from Hatzenbach. Continue reading VIDEO: Always trust a rally driver to find the shortest way

PHOTOS: Wrong way around the Nürburgring

Today is the one time of the year that racing cars can officially go fast the wrong way around the Nürburgring Nordschleifen.

It’s the Rallye Köln-Ahrweiler, and one of the special stages is from Adenau to Nürburg, back to Breidscheid. We couldn’t miss it, so my boys and me took the Suzuki 4×4 on our errands this morning and managed to snap a few photos at some key locations:
