Sabine Schmitz in my 996 GT3 MK1 @ Nürburgring
Sabine drove my 996 GT3 MK1 @ Nürburgring for 2 laps.
8:09 BTG - Sabine's first lap in my car, watch what happens when we let the Cayman VLN Racecar (on slicks) pass us :-)
We chased the Cayman all through the second lap but he would not let us pass - ended with a 7:46 BTG, but no video as Harry's Lap Timer will not let you film two consecutive laps :-(
Best ride I have ever had :-)
Nordschleife Ring Taxi near crash
A full lap with the Ring taxi. Watch out for the Clio spinning in front of the Taxi and me nearly hitting it about 10km's in to the lap.
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

The new BMW M5 F10! But not a normal one, no! This is the F10 M5 which takes you for a ride on the Nürburgring to make you have an awesome experience. Yes, it's the famous Ring Taxi! But not just one, no! I've recorded two of these beautiful power-limousines! The little brother of its V10 powered E60 M5 Ring Taxi! The drivers from the ///M Test Centre seem to like the cars! Too bad they changed the V10 to a V8 Biturbo, altough these things sound awesome! What do you think about the new Ring Taxi?
(The M3 GTS will be featured in an upcoming video!)

Multi-Car Crash At The Nürburgring | October 2011
An 8 car pileup at the Nürburgring.
Yesterday around 14:00 in the afternoon, a serious traffic accident happened on the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring with a total of eight vehicles involved including the famous BMW M3 Ring Taxi. The accident took place in two phases with drivers from several European countries involved.
The accident was probably caused by speeding. In the section called "Bergwerk" a construction company set up by a construction zone. While most of the drivers realized this, a fourth driver was trying to brake, but could not prevent a side collision with a car driving ahead. The car then hurled into the grass. After 50 meters it came back on the road where it hit two other cars.
The accident situation was recognized by three other drivers and they were able to slow down their cars. Another car, a BMW M3 ring taxi, did not pay attention and crashed against two of the decelerating cars. The ring taxi eventually stopped against the guard rail. Except for one single vehicle, all cars were severely damaged and no longer roadworthy. The estimated damage is more than € 100,000.
Sabine Schmitz in Cayenne
Nürburgring legend Sabine takes us for a spin around the Nordschleife in a Cayenne turbo. It was all part of Dunlop's SUV lap record attempt at the Green Hell. And it made us feel a bit queasy.
