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.
2013 Caterham R620 Development Car; one lap of the Nürburgring Nordschleife
Caterham were here for the recent F1 GP at the Nürburgring. They brought
with them the engine and transmission test mule for the new R620 supercar.
This little green machine started life as 'just' an R500, before it got the
new SaDev sequential gearbox and the supercharged R620 motor. I was only
allowed one lap and I've got no prior experience with a flat-shifting
sequential, so I didn't go too crazy, but it was still quite quick...

2.0-litre Ford Duratec motor producing 311bhp and 219lb ft driving the back
wheels through a straight-cut, sequential six-speed gearbox and
limited-slip differential. It is a few ancillaries away from being a race
car, and not much this side of a hypercar such as the Bugatti Veyron could keep pace with it. It
is extreme in a way only drivers of a BAC Mono or Ariel Atom could
understand. The fastest Caterham road car ever is also one of the most

Caterham R500 vs Ferrari 458 Challenge pt2
Few laps in my R500D following a slick-shod Ferrari 458 Challenge at
Donnington. See my other vid following a faster black 458 Challenge.
Set up the Vbox wrong so overlay wasn't working. Happily pulling 1.4-5g
regularly with spikes on 1.7 at bottom of Craners curves.
