Victory in the Nürburgring 6-hour for our MilltekSport GT86!

In clichéd Nürburgring VLN conditions, our Milltek Sport team powered through to secure a third win in the Toyota Motorsports GT86 Cup!

After a soaking wet shakedown session on Friday afternoon, our new, post-N24, gearbox began to fail. Thus began a weekend where every single team member played a part in the eventual victory. Our gearbox was ordered at 6pm, the end of Friday practice, and by 8pm Toyota Motorsports were delivering it to the Manheller workshop. Shortly before 10pm, we were strapping the GT86 back in to the Milltek Sport trailer ready to return to the paddock.

Driving the VLN Test & Einstellfahrten: wet and wild

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

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…
