Sit down, grab a coffee, and I’ll try to make this simple. There’s now a laptime benchmark for TOWING A TRAILER around the Nuerburgring Nordschleife. Continue reading VIDEO: Did you know there’s a new Nordschleife TRAILER record?
Enough with the crashes, the mayhem, the finger-pointing and the back-stabbing. Thursday is actually my Monday, because the track has been open for the last SIX days, and I’m in the office again.
If you find yourself with a hot drink and a few minutes to spare, I’d invite you to watch the following movie: Continue reading #CLUB1000 cars on track
They claim their new SUV did 7m51.7s. That’s nearly 25s quicker than a 600kg heavier Range Rover SVR.
But unfortunately, whoever edited the following video did a crappy job, so while the video adds up to exactly 7m51.7s of running, the car covers some sections twice and misses other sections completely.
In other words, it’s a fake video. Maybe, maybe the car did the laptime. But not on this video. So we have to trust a manufacturer that edits videos together.
Let me explain, click play and follow me down the rabbit hole… Continue reading UPDATED: Alfa Stelvio QV claims Nürburgring lap record using heavily cut video
This is the fastest street-legal, almost mass production car you’ve ever seen lap the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
It’s the Porsche GT2RS and not only does it hit ridiculous speeds (293kmh before SX, 313kmh on DH!) but it also corners like a demon rollercoaster on titanium rails.
You. Must. Watch. This. Video.
Before the internet is set ablaze by the new 991 GT2RS doing a ridiculous laptime with a factory driver, and tyres hand-delivered from Clermont-Ferrand, I just wanted to share this latest SportAuto video.
It’s magazine road tester Christian Gebhardt going hell for leather in the Manthey-modded, ex-factory test mule 991 GT3RS.
And it’s awesome.
Now back to work you slackers, it’s still 8 hours ’til the weekend!
It’s called the ACL2, and it’s a heavily modified F22 BMW 235i built by German tuners AC Schnitzer. The Aachen-based firm has a long history of tuning BMWs, but still, this must be slightly irking for the guys behind the mega-bucks M4 GTS. Continue reading VIDEO: AC Schnitzer ACL2 is a ‘Show-Car’ with real Nürburgring “Go”
You’d think that with the proliferation of the internet and the reach of social media, that maybe the accident rate at the Nürburgring would slow down a little. That maybe, because most Nordschleife accidents are more widely viewed than ever before, visitors might be a little more cautious. Or at least, a little bit more aware of the consequences they face.
This BMW 5-series rolling over the fence into the forest at Schwedenkreuz sadly proves otherwise. Continue reading Schwedenkreuz proves it isn’t getting any easier
The Clio crash on Saturday was without a doubt the talk of the Nürburgring for the last couple of days. The driver, who I won’t name, was no stranger to the Nürburgring, but his crash was spectacular, garnering 100,000 views in only a couple of days.
VLN1 was an incredible spectacle. Not only was the weather unusually perfect, but the action was none-stop. For the spectators, this was simply awesome.
For the drivers, it was hectic, chaotic and very hard work. While we made it through the maelstrom in our GT86 and scooped a victory in the TMG GT86 Cup (full story later), other drivers weren’t so lucky. Continue reading VIDEOS: Watch this M235i driver LEGITIMATELY lose his shit
While the internet is on fire, and supercar fans are rioting in the streets, Lamborghini must have slipped this video out the back door.
It explains so much, and I hope it will help bury this painful episode quickly and painlessly.
