Sabine at the ring, tuned Porsche GT2 vs Caterham CSR260
Hmmmmm, the one circuit where a fettled GT2 with a sequential would smash a
high powered (yet windscreened !) caterham and Sabine manages to draw !
Walter Röhrl has managed 7.42 here in a 415ps GT3 and i can't see a stock
CSR260 being any quicker than that .... Staged TV nonsense, but fun to
watch nevertheless. And its laughable how if a woman can drive she suddenly
becomes Emmanuelle Beart & makes all men weak at the knees.... look
closely, objectively & ignore the opposite lock: definitely a 7-pinter !
BMW ring Taxi vs Porsche 911 on the Nurburgring (The Nordschleife!)
This is the best race track in the world. The Nordschleife!
This is the one were every bike on the track gets in the way of the cars,
but to be fair it isn't a race, and the bikers are only there sight seeing
not to ride fast. This video is from 2007, BMW M5 vs Porsche 911 (the
passenger is a biker and has just been riding round the track, now he goes
in the Porsche, several times he says how 'incredible' the car is he even
points out how much the bikes slow the cars down drastically especially
after the bus, listen to him, the bikers think they are going fast!)
People can make excuses for the riders in this video, which is fine, but
at the end of the day it's a video about cars not bikes, and for those
saying it isn't Sabine, IT IS Sabine driving the BMW! it is the old M5 with
I meant, it's easier to ride a bike than drive a car, to learn at least.
Not to take anything away from the bike riders, it takes skill, lots of
skill and balls of course, or stupidity, which ever you like. No I wont
ride a bike at these kinds of speeds, I like being alive, yes I will drive
a car at these speeds, it feels safe, even if it isn't!
