slicks and a polite warning from Bentley to be careful, it's breathtakingly

Group C 1100BHP Pole Position Lap 1990 Le Mans - Blundell Nissan R90CK
Blundell on his lap - "Every input was pure reflex -- things were coming at
me everywhere I looked. For about 50 percent of the lap I felt like I was
on the verge of a massive accident." -- Absolutely amazing story
Does Blundell write for any magazines? If he doesn't, he should. In EVO
Magazine issue 157 he writes about his experience at Le Mans in 1990 with
the Nissan R90CK which was a V8 and twin turbocharged and made over what 1,100bhp!
He establishes his route to Le Mans that year and gave a real sense of what
that week was like for him and the Nissan team and when everything seemed
to be going wrong.

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
