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

Brünnchen mods finished – VLN racecars hit the Nordschleife tomorrow

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

OFFICIAL: #TeamBTG announces impending VLN awesomeness

Some days I really have to pinch myself, you know, just to check that this is reality. And not some fevered pain-killer-induced hallucination on a hospital bed, because in real-life I’ve crashed.

What on Earth am I on about? Well, this…

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…

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!

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.

VLN4: Ring of Fire

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.
