Default Lap of the Ring

In Sept '19 I got to sign off one of my bucket list items, to drive the Nurburgring.

lots of different ways of doing it, from a little money to A LOT of money!


I went with a bit of money, hired a Ringfreaks BMW 330i which was basically*VLN V5 class racing car but I think they tune the engine down a bit

https://www.ringfreaks.de/cars/bmw-e90-330i/

ended up doing a 10:03 lap (BtG) which I was rather happy with as I only did 4 laps.

if you are bored, here is the last lap, the 3 things that appeared to me in watching it back is how slow it looks, how lucky I was having the track almost to myself and how cleanly I ended up driving.






and if you really want to see how the Nurburgring is done, here is Porsche smashing the 35yo lap record in '18, and no, its not sped up!
