In the meantime at the Nürburgring

I know I have been slacking on this blog, it’s a real shame really. So finally some people have asked me to continue blogging. So I thought I would start with this picture that I took this afternoon in Germany. The white M3 belongs to Stephane Benini from Clash Production. He took me for a spin around the ring.

Thanks Stephane

GT-R laps the Grüne Holle even faster

Today I got an heads up on some more news regarding the Nissan GT-R. The GT-R recorded an even faster time of 7 minutes and 29 seconds. The time was recorded during testing on the Nurburgring on the 16th and 17th of April.

At last year’s testing, we were frustrated by the conditions at the Nurburgring, always believing that the GT-R could go under seven minutes 30 seconds.” said Kazutoshi Mizuno, Chief Vehicle Engineer for GT-R. “Below seven minutes 30 seconds, the GT-R proves it is among the fastest mass-production cars in the world. We set out to build a multi-performance supercar accessible to anyone, anytime and anywhere – I believe the GT-R has delivered that promise

The car that was used was in standard trim and had no extra modifications, for the tires they used the standard Japanese market tires. The driver was Tochio Suzuki, he is the chief test driver for Nissan.

GT-R contender

The last few days I have been checking what was driving around the Nürburgring in Germany, I live a three hour drive from the circuit 🙂 Al these rumors about the new Spec V and Lexus LF-A had made me curious. Now Lexus has even upped the ante with this ‘new’ LF-A. They have showed up at the track with this monster and I mean that in a good way.

This car looks more like a race prepared car than a normal LF-A road car. The car has a newly designed front bumper with a bigger airdam and canards.

2

From the side I think it looks alot like the old Supra, so this to me this will be the successor of the Supra. Massive rims hides the even more impressive brake assembly, and we can see a quick acces fuel cap.

In the rear we see this huge spoiler for extra downforce, I’m not sure wether this car will be has been build to break the record at the Nürburgring or that Lexus is testing their 24 hours Le mans entry. Their are rumors that Lexus will be entering this years race.
