The content of this video was, as the BTG Facebook page pointed out earlier, just one of the many reasons the Nürburging was closed more than it was open today.
Tech-hungry anoraks might have already seen the 360-degree demo videos on YouTube (my favourite being this wingsuit jump). Of course, my first thought was “wouldn’t a lap of the Nordschleife be cool with this system?”… of course, it IS cool!
This year’s 24-hours of Nürburgring will go down in the history books for so many reasons. While others choose to fix their gaze on the negatives surrounding the 2015 race (speed limits and tougher qualification rules resulting in a 25% drop in entries), I want to look at the positives.
“It’s all about the fans,” enthuses Adam Osieka. “They come first, everything else second. And for them, I think it was a great race.”

We’ve all seen the new 991-based GT3RS. I’ve seen the camo-clad test cars, and recently the stationary show-queens at Geneva and New York.
