Not exactly production, but still impressive.
Curves ahead - many of them...
“What I want to do is endow a Glickenhaus road cup,” he says on TopGear.com. “On the day of the Nürburgring 24 Hours, after the top 30 shootout for the race, the road cars are scrutinised, and then we time them on the Nordschleife. And then there’s no bulls***.”
In the first weekend of September, a friend and I decided to make the drive down to the Nürburgring (roughly 250 km), in order to watch the ROWE 6 Stunde ADAC Ruhr-Pokal-Rennen, better known as round 7 of the VLN championship.
There are two things I enjoy most, the thrill of driving and the joys in traveling. It so happens both are ruthlessly demanding on a level of personal finance and time commitment.
The area round the ring is gorgeous, both in hilly scenery, castles, twisty roads, but the area is like cars and coffee on crack. I tried to find more interesting cars and stories; there are enough E90 and E46 M3s for days. But Alpine? Ro80? Chevy Beretta? Oh, yeah! /KoolAidGuy

Here’s a fresh 7:53 BTG lap of the Nürburgring. In a Twingo RS. Alright, a well-developed Twingo RS with 204 hp and a rather slim 964kg to push around.
Either it or one just like it appears to have eaten the wall. :(
This summer I went to the Nurburgring with my 86’ Celica.
Watch from a 996 GT3 as Sabine Schmitz flogs the crap out of an E39 Ring Taxi on a track full of motorcycles:
Took this from a Jalopnik article today. Wallpaper of the... Whatever.
For the record, I don’t know if that’s the reason for the wheel coming off, that’s just my guess.
In 1 or 2 hours I will be leaving for the Nurburgring.
Is there any way I can prepare my car and myself so I don’t end up in a YouTube video?
