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?
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.
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!
Now any collision between a ton-and-a-half of car and some poor bloke on a bike is going to be ugly.
But luckily for the biker, he lives to ride another day. If he feels like it…
…because from this angle I’ve got to say: damn, he really screwed that up.
Watch for yourself: Continue reading VIDEO: Bike vs. Car, it’s ugly.
UPDATED: More video at the bottom of the page! If Donald Trump is upset about leaks in his security, he should have a talk with the bosses over at Sant’Agata Bolognese, Lamborghini HQ. Ever since the black bull rented the Nordschleife last year, it’s been widely believed that the Huracan Performante set a new Nürburgring laptime. Continue reading UPDATED: Lamborghini set to drop the new Huracan’s laptime next week
Whether it’s cars overtaking on the wrong side of the track in public driving, race cars ignoring double yellow flags, or pedestrians narrowly avoiding crashing cars, the Nürburgring is clearly dangerous.
By now I’d be very surprised if you hadn’t ‘met’ Boosted Boris. He’s Nürburg’s most sexist, anti-capitalist, drunken YouTuber.
And he’s the creation of my friend Misha. Misha works at RingGarage most of the time, administering their sales and marketing. Continue reading VIDEO: What happens when Boris takes off his hat?
If you consult Google Maps, the fast left-hander that is Schwedenkreuz doesn’t really look like much trouble at all. A 30º left-hander with no real drama at all.
So why does the next video show just so much car carnage?
Sit down, watch this 2016 Schwedenkreuz crash compilation video, and I’ll try to explain. Continue reading VIDEO: Is Schwedenkreuz the most dangerous corner on the Nürburgring?
Achim’s RingMini is a #RingTool that most regulars have already met. Generally it only emerges on to the Nordschleife when it’s wet and slippery. Continue reading VIDEO: Onboard the Nordschleife Backwards in the 300hp RingMini
