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

Squeezing every little bit out of that F20C. Grippy tires help too.
Casually watching this video I said to myself “damn this guy is a beast” then I scrolled over the title to see that this “beast” as in fact, Top Gear presenter Sabine Schmitz. It’s almost as if she is subconsciously navigating the track IN THE RAIN while applying most of her focus on blasting by other cars.I hope the…
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.
This summer I went to the Nurburgring with my 86’ Celica.

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?

I was just browsing one of my other motoring sites and came across this video and was shocked at how stupid the motorbike rider was, when I watched it again I noticed that the car that almost wiped him out has the same stickers as one of us on here, did the car come like that or was that our oppo guys on the ‘ring?
Nürburgring-related dump inside. If you have a potato internet connection, don’t click. :(
These images just in, unfortunately the venerable Rotek Racing TTRS-R has suffered catastrophic engine failure in the early night hours while leading in SP4T . I’d seen the car pull off earlier in a cloud of smoke, but didn’t know why. I feel terrible for the whole team.
Possibly because of unseen contact damage and/or confusion over yellow flags, a great battle for 3rd overall between this AMG SLS GT3 and a BMW Z4 GT3 was brought to an end in the Nürburgring 24 Hours when the left rear wheel fell off. Did the driver give up? NO! Does this look like Formula 1?
Here’s a lap onboard James Thompson’s Lada Vesta with Rob Huff behind the wheel at the Nürburgring Combined circuit from yesterdays WTCC test.
