Gardner Douglas T70 on the Nordschleife Nurburgring.
One very fast lap in a Gardner Douglas T70. Car is a real british jewel,
handmade by www.gdcars.com. This one has a modified Corvette Z06 engine,
with about 720 hp for 920 kilos of dry weight. Such a shame we had just
finished to running in the engine and left the rpm limiter at 6500 rpm, you
can here the car hitting the limiter on the main straight at about 300
kms/h. Driver is the notorious "deaddwarf" Dario Margutti, from
www.mythoscars.com. Racing suites by lorddamon.com.
McLaren MP4-12C vs Honda Civic BTCC racer vs Honda Fireblade British Superbike
We know the McLaren 12C is other-worldly fast. But how does it compare
against a Honda Civic British Touring Car Championship racer and a British
Superbike Championship-winning Honda Fireblade?

We took a McLaren 12C to Rockingham Motor Speedway to face its toughest
challenge yet. Could it outpace a Honda Civic BTCC racer driven by former
champion Gordon Shedden and the pairing of 2013 British Superbike champion
Alex Lowes and his Samsung Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade? Which would set the
fastest lap? Would the Civic's superior grip make up for the power deficit?
Would the McLaren be too much to match on the straight? Or would the 'Blade
offer a blend of light weight and high performance impossible to match?

Sabine at the ring, tuned Porsche GT2 vs Caterham CSR260
Hmmmmm, the one circuit where a fettled GT2 with a sequential would smash a
high powered (yet windscreened !) caterham and Sabine manages to draw !
Walter Röhrl has managed 7.42 here in a 415ps GT3 and i can't see a stock
CSR260 being any quicker than that .... Staged TV nonsense, but fun to
watch nevertheless. And its laughable how if a woman can drive she suddenly
becomes Emmanuelle Beart & makes all men weak at the knees.... look
closely, objectively & ignore the opposite lock: definitely a 7-pinter !
