Nurburgring On Two Wheels!

Nurburgring On Two Wheels!

You read that correctly. Someone actually drove the Nurburgring on two wheels. Chinese stunt driver Han Yue set the slowest world record ever recorded at the ring. It seems pretty stupid in a lot of ways. Until you see the Mini come around the corner in two wheels. Its not right. Its…
Nurburgring Crash, Fail, and Win!

Nurburgring Crash, Fail, and Win!

The Nurburgring makes for the best crash videos by far. It’s not because its so fast or dangerous but rather that the track is so accessible. Anyone with a drivers license go can go out and run at full speed. You don’t need a helmet or any safety gear. You…

To quote a racing legend, “If you ain’t first, you’re last!” BMW qualified on Pole of the 2015 24hrs of the Nurburgring and finished 2nd last weekend so I guess I should be happy they are on the podium. But they lost to an Audi. “So what?” you probably say?…

BMW M235ix testing at the Nürburgring

You see manufacturer cars at the ring all the time. They’re not special. There are regular cars hiding in camouflage all over the place. Sitting there outside of Pistenklause. Or in the industrial park. It just a part of being at the Ring. But every so often you find something…

NISMO GTR Laps the Ring in 7:08

18 seconds is a ton of time on a racetrack. It’s difficult to improve a performance car with huge leaps and bounds but in just 4 years Nissan took 18 seconds off the original GTR’s lap time. 595 horsepower helps. So does 480 ft lbs of torque. But it was…

Is the Nurburgring Overcrowded?

I’m surprised there hasn’t been more accidents at the Nurburgring like the eight car pile up over the weekend. Nothing has changed about the track or its physical safety but the number of public lapping sessions have been significantly cut back since the new management took over. With the Nurburgring…
