Another day, another record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. This time it’s Manthey Racing, acting together with their 51% owners Porsche. Continue reading Manthey-equipped GT2RS claims new street-legal Nürburgring record at 6m40s

VIDEO: The fastest 5IVE at the ‘Ring… bar none

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!

[ONBOARD] 6m56s! Kévin Estre blasts Nordschleife in new GT3 RS

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:

[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!

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.

Ride onboard that 7m01s lap of the Nürburgring Nordschleife in the 2017 Viper ACR Extreme 

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:

VIDEO: Ferrari bumps innocent Starlet, life basically sucks sometimes

It’s absolutely one of the most common questions I used to face when I worked at Rent4Ring. “What do I do if some guy bumps into me and it’s not even my fault?”

The answer I would give in those days (and the answer I’d still give right now) is simple: Continue reading VIDEO: Ferrari bumps innocent Starlet, life basically sucks sometimes

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!
