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.

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!)
