[VIDEO] Watch *that* 14-car pile-up from a new angle, and try your best to heed the advice!

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!

New Pennzoil video explains all those skidmarks around the ‘Ring in 2017

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.

VIDEO: Did you know there’s a new Nordschleife TRAILER record?

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?

#CLUB1000 cars on track

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

UPDATED: Alfa Stelvio QV claims Nürburgring lap record using heavily cut video

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

LUDICROUS 6m47.25 Porsche GT2RS 991 onboard video online

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.

NOW Continue reading LUDICROUS 6m47.25 Porsche GT2RS 991 onboard video online

VIDEO: Manthey GT3RS 991 does a very real 7m09s lap of the Nürburgring 

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!

VIDEO: AC Schnitzer ACL2 is a ‘Show-Car’ with real Nürburgring “Go”

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”

Schwedenkreuz proves it isn’t getting any easier

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

VIDEO: Watch that horrific airborne Clio crash from directly behind

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.
