Vid of BMW GTR around Nurburgring (insane)

This is a video of BMW GTR doing one lap around the huge Nurburgring track. This track stretches 13 miles surrounding a whole village located in its center. With 73 bends it is considered the most demanding track in the World.

In the 8 minute video this bmw gtr smashes through the track so fast it is unbelievable. The driver looks like he knows the track by heart perfectly, which is very impressive considering the size of the track. He must practice there all the time. Just look at how fast he passes the other cars in the track.

If you are interested about learning more about the track check out this site.

On public sessions anyone can bring their car and do as many laps as they please. However, not just any person can drive on this track. Takes a lot of skill. Maybe one of us can take our 3 there sometime. Hehe.

That will be me one day...

And i have to go clean up now. That was the fuckin hottest thing i've ever seen. The only thing you could do to top off a run that perfect would be to jump out of the car, rip off your nomex suit and fuck a porn star.

Yes, that will be me one day...

Looks like it was a practice day and the M3 driver decided to let his hair down.

if this is the video I'm thinking of (didn't feel like dl'ing it yet again) then the driver is Hans Stuck...yeah, I'd say he has a lot of practice around the 'Ring seeing as how he's won the 24-hr race there 3 times and has 30 years of experience on the track as a BMW and Porsche development driver

1970 winner of 24 hours at the 'Ring
1972 German Touring Car champ, won 24 Hours at Spa
1975 US IMSA champ
1973-1979 multiple F1 podium finishes
1986 Won 24 hrs of Le Mans, and 12 hrs at Sebring

At least he seems pretty happy with his lap time

Here's a clip of a RUF Porsche on the 'Ring as well... pretty intense. Dunno who the driver is, and he makes some mistakes -
but hey; he didn't send his car into the wall like I would
