Robert’s MX5 NC is no stranger to the pages and feeds of BTG. But after a rather successful couple of days at the recent Ringmeisters event, he’s uploaded a new video. A proper, legit, Video VBOX HD2 video… with data.
And it’s fast. Proper fast. Really crazy fast!

Last chance? You’re thinking, “Why is it the last chance? The trackday isn’t ’til April 11th and it’s barely February right now!”
Well, in case you missed the news, the April BTG trackday is gonna be awesome. And thanks to the ridiculously low-price before Christmas, it’s already well over half-full of BTG friends and Nurburgring fans.
For the last few weeks visitors to the BTG Nurburgring trackday calendar have enjoyed a £449 entry price by using the voucher code on that page.
BUT THAT CODE IS ENDING! Yes, we’re just like Easyjet, but without the queueing. As the event fills up, the prices get higher.

(Don’t forget that the October event is still discounted to £499 from £549 with the code BTG1610)
There’s a massive difference in price and quality between the cheapest and most expensive Nürburgring Nordschleife trackdays.
A couple of days ago Misha vlogged about “the worst trackday of my life“. It was a very cheap event, with too much traffic, too many crashes and somewhat relaxed organisation. There’s a reason why that event is NOT on my BTG trackday calendar. You’ll only find the good ones on BTG.
Of course, if you pay €1000 a day, you can enjoy the track on a very exclusive basis, no surprise.

While the ‘new’ Chris Evans Top Gear might not have hit the spot with many of us, few can deny the power of the insanely-popular BBC TV program. And with a streamlined crew, devoid of Evans, with more Sabine, Harris and Rory, the next season looks promising again. Continue reading Top Gear returning to the ‘Ring with Sabine and Rory
Contrary to popular opinion, a front-wheel-drive (FWD) car is NOT the work of the devil. When designed properly they’re awesome, especially in the wet! Continue reading VIDEO: Nürburgring FWD wet-lap tips and tricks
Nigel Pinder’s Golf mk2 turbo is no stranger to the pages of BTG. The Pinderwagen, as BTG christened it, has turned up numerous times on DestinationNürburgring events. It’s a giant-slayer, and with its impressive power-to-weight ratio and strong aeros, this little Golf can help keep any legendary supercar honest.
And supercars don’t get any more legendary than the newest 991 GT3.RS, piloted by no less than Chris Harris!

Despite the dire warnings of snow, blizzards, abominable snow men and no Bitburger trucks for a week, today turned out to be another awesome day at the Nürburgring. Sunshine, open pit lane, fast laps and lots of friends. I even got to thrash a brand-new Clio220 Trophy (video inside).
No big surprises there, we all know Nürburgring is always awesome, but one guy who was quite surprised was Markus. He won a FREE place on today’s Schnelleschwaben trackday, just by following the official BTG Facebook page. After working late for two days, he finally set off on a five-hour drive from deepest Bavaria and arrived late last night.
