Fernando Alonso drives Ferrari 458 Spider
Right before the start of the race weekend of the Italian Grand Prix in
Monza, Fernando Alonso wanted to try the new 458 Spider, which will be
presented at the IAA Frankfurt next Tuesday. The Scuderia Ferrari driver
enjoyed the potential of the 8-cylinder mid-rear engine from the Prancing
Horse - with hard top and fitted with the same most advanced technological
content as the multi-awarded 458 Italia and now available in an "en plein
air" version - on the roads around Maranello.
Alonso was extremely satisfied with the perfect combination of high
performance, exceptional handling and the engine sound the 458 Spider is
able to deliver.
2012 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 hits the Nürburgring
To demonstrate the improvements on the 2012 Corvette, Chevrolet has
returned to the Nürburgring with the range-topping ZR1.
As the video shows, the car - which features a supercharged 6.2-liter V8
engine with 638 hp (476 kW / 647 PS) and 604 lb-ft (818 Nm) of torque -
lapped the legendary Nordschleife in 7:19.63 which is more than six seconds
faster than the previous Corvette
record that was set back in 2008.
To get the improved time, the ZR1 was equipped with the new PDE performance
package which has a full-width rear spoiler and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup
Zero Pressure tires that are "optimized for warm, dry conditions to
increase cornering and handling capability."

Last couple of days I visited the Gran Turismo Events on the Nurburgring.
Koenigsegg Norway also enjoyed this great event with their Official Test
Car 7031 Streetfighter and the World Record Car Agera R.
When the awesome 1115 HP Koenigsegg Agera R passed the pit lane on
Döttinger Höhe on Thursday everyone was amazed by the speed of the car.
Using the whole 3.5 kilometer straight, the Koenigsegg logged a "quite
impressive" 401.6 km/h before braking before the bridge at Tiergarten.
The Agera R has a normal Koenigsegg road setup, was driven on 98 oktan fuel
and on standard Michelin Pilot tires.

Pagani Zonda R - Nurburgring lap
Pagani - Pirelli Tyre - Assuring new technologies and materials are fit for
production means also putting the vehicle's components under severe
stresses, exceeding those normally encountered in every day road driving.
The Nürburgring Nordschleife is the most demanding track in the world, for
man and machine, an ordeal that each Pagani has to pass, only one of many
in the entire development phase.
The Zonda R serves as the ultimate test bench, a car able to reach
acceleration figures and speeds that are not possible with a road car.
This is further underlined by a laptime of 6:47,5 min for the 20,832 km
Nordschleife. Driver: Marc Basseng

A hell of a ride at the Nordschleife.
Liri Farfus followed countless races closely, always hoping her husband
puts in a great result, coming home without a scratch. However, she wants
to experience a lap of the Nordschleife by herself - and joined Augusto as
a co-driver in the "Green Hell". Was it a very good idea, watch this video
and find out.
