    Nürburgring

    I'm thinking of making the pilgrimage over there at the end of July. Well stopping there on the way from the UK to Berlin.

    Has anybody been over there? And can they rate the experience etc.. any tips?

    Only on 2 wheels, amazing experience and there are some seriously fast drivers and riders on the track, as a novice... use your mirrors..... A LOT.

    Yeah I have been looking at videos online and it seems like there is potential for serious issues!
    My concern with the R8 is that it's not going to be the fastest car on the track, nor will it be the slowest, so I think it should mean I'll be passing cars / letting cars passed quite a bit. Basically amongst the action.. could be 'interesting' at times I think!

    I've been maybe 12 times, though not in the R8 yet. Hopefully changing that later in the year.

    I love it, if I could find a way to live there, I would. It's an amazing circuit, but must be treated with respect.

    Read the rules, keep an eye on your mirrors, leave the ego at home.

    And.... go for steak in the Pistenklause!

    I'd love to experience it one day. I've maybe watched one too many "accidents at the ring" videos on YouTube... though I don't think it would keep me from doing it! Must be an amazing experience! Have fun and share some photos.

    You've probably seen plenty of YouTube videos of "You think you're fast" well at the 'ring you'll see it for real, all the exotics being overtaken by superior drivers/riders using machinery that we would consider rubbish, definitely a place to have your ego destroyed.

    In case anyone missed this. 2nd fastest time ever, and tops for an electric. That whine makes me want to stab my ears out though. Also, he doesn’t have near as much torque on the back straight as he does at the beginning of the lap.

    Battery doesn’t keep it as consistent as combustion engine I’m guessing. Or tires.
    He could have gone under 6 min had he kept his speed higher on that straight.

    But **** that is lightning quick compared to the videos you watch of people driving the Ring.

    Impressive - but yes, the whine is hideous, and clearly it was limited in the straights... topped at 245 - 250 km/h.

    I saw 272 km/h, but it was going downhill.
    For once, I'd welcome a soundaktor.
