Today the Nordschleife is being used exclusively by AMG to allow the factory and customer teams to make final preparations for the Nürburgring 24-hour race, barely 2 weeks away.
As reported on earlier in the week by BTG, Porsche’s amazing 520hp GT3 RS did indeed go sub-7 several times during Monday’s exclusive test session.
And strap in tight, get the swear-jar in front of you, ready to receive all of your pocket change, because here’s the video proof of just how loony-awesome Kévin can drive a Porsche:
The battle for Nürburgring superiority continues unabated in 2018, with not one, but TWO manufacturers attempting to set new personal best Nordschleife laptimes today.
One of the ideas that drives BTG is that of opening the curtains, inviting the casual Nürburgring fan to see a little more of the Nordschleife than they might expect.
Well, this 25-Minute documentary commits to that idea in style, from radios under pedals to galling crashes, it pulls no punches.
This is the true story of how the world’s most driven Viper fans gave their iconic supercar the send-off it deserved.
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?
The irony of that headline isn’t lost on me. My rants are not totally crazy (yet). This website is called BridgeToGantry.com for many reasons, including the most obvious one. Continue reading RANT: Why laptiming is killing Nürburgring TF
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.
It’s been a long road to get here, but the Viper just went even faster. With Dom heading to Silverstone, VLN regular and ex Porsche Cup driver Lance David Arnold stepped into the car for a quick couple of laps in the middle of a Pistenclub trackday.
After only a few laps of warm-up, he clocked the 7m01.3 lap you can watch below, and on the second lap the front tyre blew (more on that at a later date!)
For now, just enjoy the video:
