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…

VIDEO: Last VLN of 2016 was a muddy hell…

The last race of the year at the Nürburgring is rarely smooth sailing. VLN10 was no exception, as these videos show.

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.

VIDEO: See why Kesselchen is so deadly in the wet

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?

iRacing just ran an official VLN race, and here it is!

There’s little doubt that the gap between virtual and reality is closing faster than a GT3 and an MX5 along the Döttinger Höhe. And this weekend was a water-shed moment for fans of the Nürburgring and racing sims.

VLN2: Picking up the pieces

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.
