One lap of the Nürburgring Nordschleife on the same day as the German Formula 1 Grand Prix was taking place. Part of the circuit was closed and there was a detour off the track. On top of the track the had built a temporary Grandstand.
I had som clutch problems, so I kept the shifting to a minimum.
Tourist lap at Nürburgring Nordschleife, Corvette C5
I think this was my 6th or 7th lap.
I like this clip particularly beacuse it demonstrates what "the ring" is all about. Take your everyday car, go to gröne hölle (the green hell), drive a satisfying lap, get off, socialise at the parkinglot or wherever, drive a few more laps and go home.
This was my first year at Nürburg so I consider myself novice.
I´d be glad to answer questions if you got any, and if I dont know the answer (which propably will be the case ;) ) I´ll find somebody who does.
Best of luck!

Corvette Z06 on Nürburgring (passenger Sabine Schmitz)
A relaxed lap of the Nürburgring Nordschleife with Sabine Schmitz as instructor and passenger. This is the same day as the German F1 Grand Prix took place on the adjacent GP track in July 2009. There is a grandstand on the Nordschleife at T13 which is why there is a speed restriction (30 km/h).
Unfortunately my car is so loud so I could hardly hear Sabine at all. The BTG time is around 8:56 on this lap, but my record is 8:09. The objective was to learn the proper "raceline" instead of the "touristenfahrt line".

ZR1 Corvette Nurburgring
Part of a lap at the Nurburgring in my 1991 C4 ZR1, not very fast as it is only my 4th lap, I eventually get fed up following the Porsche and try to keep up with the BMW that goes past.
Corvette C5 Z06 w/ Magnaflow exhaust!! Loud fly by sounds!

Corvette and Ferrari Crash
At a local event for a track day, some Corvettes and Ferraris get tangled up in Big Bend at Lime Rock. Keep your eye on the front of the pack.
Nobody was hurt but 3 cars did get some damage and alot of other cars got wet and muddy from avoiding the carnage.
