I spend a lot of time on BTG trying to explain how your best lap of the Nordschleife can rapidly go to hell-in-a-handbasket in a few seconds. Last year’s 14-car clusterf*** was a prime example of your worst Nuerburgring nightmare.
But this time, I’m going to let somebody else explain… Continue reading [VIDEO] Watch *that* 14-car pile-up from a new angle, and try your best to heed the advice!
Driving to work last year, I came across a new set of skidmarks on the road near Muellenbach. Then some more, and some more. The sheer number of them, and the directions they were taking (quite often the wrong way up a slip road or around a junction) led me to to believe some pro-level drifting had taken place. Continue reading New Pennzoil video explains all those skidmarks around the ‘Ring in 2017
With more than a 20ºC temperature shift in the last 7 days, the Nürburgring have announced that they will open the Nordschleife for Touristenfahrten earlier than planned this year.
The announcement was made on social media earlier today: Continue reading EARLY OPENING! Nürburgring Nordschleife opens THIS Sunday March 11th.
It’s only February, and already the #CLUB1000 was on track for the second time. And thanks to some unseasonally bright sunshine, we even got our new Nankang AR-1 semislicks up to temperature!
With the next snow forecast in just 24-hours, it seemed like the whole of the trackday and racing scene was in a hurry to get some track time before the storm hit. There were VLN and RCN cars, Belcar championship contendors, and a helluva lot of trackday fans.

I’ll keep this short but sweet… this is a design that’s often requested, and was only on sale one summer. And that was five years ago!
Well, after promising a friend (who’d worn his to the point it had holes in it) I’d make him another, I thought I’d throw it open to new buyers at the same time.
So here’s your chance to jump in to the next production run.
For a LIMITED TIME ONLY!

Regular readers of this blog will remember that, at heart, I’m a bit of a geek. Yes, despite driving and racing all these amazing cars for a living, I still really enjoy sim-racing.
And I’m inviting you to join other BTGers (and myself) on an official 32-slot Assetto Corsa server.
I plugged my first steering wheel into a PC back in the mid-90s, but since then the technology has moved on quite a lot… Continue reading [SIM] BTG and sim-racing (and how to join in!)
I’m a pretty busy guy this year. I can’t seem to find the time to put everything that happens online, but I need to do better. Why?
Because thanks to some crazy half-assed blogging from last year, and a lot of support from my friends and colleagues, BTG now has it’s own driver’s club. And the first event was last month. It was so much fun that we immediately agreed to do another. Continue reading #CLUB1000 first event is a success
One of the ideas that drives BTG is that of opening the curtains, inviting the casual Nürburgring fan to see a little more of the Nordschleife than they might expect.
Well, this 25-Minute documentary commits to that idea in style, from radios under pedals to galling crashes, it pulls no punches.
This is the true story of how the world’s most driven Viper fans gave their iconic supercar the send-off it deserved.
Drop that coffee, spit your tea all over the monitor, and exclaim your favourite swear-word at 125dB… the Nürburgring powers-that-be have FINALLY released the public opening times for the old 20.8km Nordschleife!
