Going straight-on at Adenauer Forst is nothing new or unusual. If you stand there at 8am on a Sunday morning you can probably see a dozen bikes or cars make that mistake in the first hour.

But what happens to this poor E30 is just awful.

UPDATED: Now with onboard footage:

For all the keyboard warriors keen to take-up virtual arms, let me equip you with some facts and opinions:

Fact: slower traffic should move to the RIGHT on the Nordschleife, as with any public road. So the BMW was doing nothing wrong.

Fact: the BMW driver was not driving ‘too slow’, the minimum speed of 60km/h in the Nürburgring driving regulations relating to the minimum top-speed of the vehicle, not the speed in a corner.

Opinion: The Audi was clearly never going to make it through this section without eating some grass. The BMW was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.


This post reminded me that I’ve not shared the amazing Rhapsodie in Blech movies since I moved BTG over to the new website. So here’s a couple of classics.

Part 1 includes a cheesy VHS-era intro detailing other quality ‘Futura’ VHS releases, so feel free to skip forwards to 1m20!

Unknown to many, there are actually four parts total to this movie:
