AX diesel Nurburgring record lap 9:55 BTG
Citroën AX 14D « Entreprise » -- 1993 -- 685.100 km -- 1,360 litre
diesel engine 52 hp -- 720 kg
The car is stock except: xenon lights, front tyres (A048), increased fuel
pressure, strutbar (because of the mileage of the body) and an aluminum
intake from 1.5D engine (because of the strutbar).
This record lap was done on Saturday August 17th 2013 at 8:37am.
It was the 118th Nordschleife lap for this car and my 10th attempt trip
(1115 km away from Bordeaux in France).
Lap timing equipment = mobile phone with Harry's Lap Timer and a XGPS150

I have been chasing the 'perfect lap' for 7 years with no traffic, no road
works, fresh air, dry track, no driving mistakes and a reliable drivetrain.
This TUD3 diesel engine is known for its poor reliability and I went
through 9 engines and 5 gearboxes!
Here I want to thank all the people who spent time to help me work on this
With such a non-powerful car, if you kill the momentum you're done, and in
many corners I tend to overdrive the car trying to maximize momentum.
For this reason, my video is not a driving lesson at all!
During all these years I tried to be respectful of the Nürburgring tourist
drive rules, the other users (faster and slower cars) and the people
working on the track.
Recording movies and lap times is not allowed, in theory...but I made this
video to show you don't necessarily need a sport car and a lot of money to
Racing is a state of mind.
