Learning the Nürburgring in a Porsche 911 - XCAR
Subscribe to XCAR: http://bit.ly/U9XDKc The Porsche 911 is a very capable car. The Nürburgring is a very scary track. Alex Goy is not a very capable track driver. Those three statements are both true and connected... In the summer of 2012 we had a phone call offering every petrolhead's dream -- two days of professional training around the 'Ring in a shiny new Porsche 911 Carrera S. To make things nice and complicated I challenged myself to do a solo lap of the Nordschleife in less than ten minutes after the instruction was over. An easy task for a pro, but not for someone who errs on the cautious side of driving like me. The Nürburgring is widely regarded as one of the most fearsome roads in the world. It's very long, has over 140 corners and takes decades of practise to learn. Many lives have been lost on the 'Ring and countless cars have lost a fight against the miles of Armco that hems the tarmac. Having only ever attempted the Nordschleife in the virtual world before I was understandably nervous. I was crap at it online, how would I be any good in the real world? I was there for Sport Auto's Perfecktions Training as a guest of Porsche. It was an ideal opportunity to have a crack at the legend... in a legend. My steed was a Porsche 911 Carrera S -- 400bhp of rear-engined, RWD fun. The new 911 is a brilliant car, it's nowhere near as lairy as your mates in the pub would have you believe. Yes, the weight is at the back and if you turn all the traction toys off you could end up oversteering into a hedge. However, thanks to Porsche PASM (Porsche Active Stability Management) system it's perfectly safe in the hands of a moron. So perfect for a 'Ring Rookie like me. My instructor was the wonderfully unhinged Christian Menzel. He's a rather talented racing driver and something of a 'Ring expert - the ideal person to teach me how to shuffle around it properly. My first lap was a nervous one -- the tales of crashed cars and lost lives fresh in my mind as I built my confidence, learnt how much of my overly enthusiastic inputs the car could take and began to recognise corners I'd previously overrun on Gran Turismo. As with most things the key to improvement is practise -- in this case endlessly lapping the course, going faster each time and keeping an eye out for silly mistakes. While my confidence was certainly building I still didn't want to fall off. As 'go time' loomed nearer I was getting better and better. So much so that I decided to take a breather and have a ride with a true Ring Meister: Walter Röhrl. A motoring legend and a bona fide celeb at the 'Ring, Walter showed me what can truly be done when you have actual talent. His 911 GT2 RS was terrifyingly fast, his reactions faster. Röhrl passed cars with inches to spare, raising a cheery hand off the wheel to thank them as he sped by. Still, my time to shine (or die) came and Christian had one sterling piece of advice for me: "Just bring my baby home". As I passed under the bridge I flipped the switch on the 911's built-in stopwatch and we were off. I'd spent two days learning the circuit, taking in the camber changes, elevation differences, sight lines, changes of light, different corners, braking points and I was finally on my own. While I hadn't memorised each corner, I vaguely knew what was going to come next. Without a lead car ahead of me I had no idea whether I was taking the right line or even going fast enough -- I'd timed a few of our laps before and saw we'd managed some low-nine minute runs. That, however, was with Christian up front. Could I manage to get anywhere close? I'd done a fast lap before, countless times actually, but never alone, One thing was clear -- I was far more relaxed than I had been at the start. My first lap saw me more tightly sprung than a jack-in-the-box with anger management issues, now I was calmer with the controls and could anticipate what was coming. As the miles tumbled I was worried I wouldn't make it -- I couldn't glance down at the clock as I was too busy not falling off the circuit... As the finishing gantry came into view a quick look at the timer showed that I'd made it with time to spare -- 09:37. Not bad. The Nürburgring is one of those 'life list' things that many want to do but few ever will. I left the 'Ring with more confidence and a healthy feeling that I'd risen to a challenge. I'd taken on the Nürburgring and not been bitten in the arse. Next step... nine minutes. Join us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/XCAROfficial

Audi 5 cylinder Turbo engine (Audi 90 IMSA GTO - 720hp 5 cylinder engine from the year 1989)
Audi RS Moments of Truth - 5 cylinder engine 1989 2190cc - 20v - 5 cylinder engine - 720hp at 7500 rpm !!! Video copyright: Audi AG Audi RS "Moments of Truth" is a series of highly stylized, dynamic short-form documentaries that capture a moment in time -- visual, visceral proof of the impact that technological innovation and risk-taking has had on performance in a highly competitive world. This film tells the story of the legendary longitudinally mounted Audi 5-cylinder racing engine used in the IMSA/GTO circuit in 1989 at Sears Point. Audi driver Hans-Joachim Stuck focuses on the moment when this fire-breathing, aggressive five cylinder, with its characteristic wasteplate turbo growl, ushered the Audi team to victory. The piece then links the motor sports moment of truth to a story of modern-day design and engine innovation in the 5 cylinder lurking beneath the hood of the TT RS and unavailable in the standard TT. quattro GmbH engineer Michael Ganz brings to life the visual technological advancements of the 5 cylinder engine at the quattro GmbH engine test bed, and through specific dynamic track footage of the TT RS.

Precision at Pike's Peak
Watch the dust fly in this white knuckle ride up one of the all time classic hill climbs at Pikes Peak. There's no margin for error as former World Rally Champion Ari Vatanen pilots the classic Peugeot 405 T16 up the winding mountain roads, paying no heed to the sheer drops just inches away. A rare treat, this classic footage was used by Peugeot in the late 80s but was never widely distributed. Feel the exhilaration! See more at www.injection.tv
