I read an article about the C6 ZO6 on the Ring in 7:42.9! 0.1 seconds faster than the Porsche GT3 RS! I'm sure you'll find it on Google.
I can confirm that. And the time was set by Jan Magnussen from Denmark. There was an article about the Z06 in the newest issue of the main Danish car mag. Apparently Magnussen was actually scared of himself while doing the lap!

That Z06 seems really awesome - one of very few American cars I would like to drive (no offense) :)

A man hasn't lived until he's taken a lap around the Nürburgring.

Having said that, yes, I have. Two. :smile:

This is what happens during big accidents...

Track closed.. People standing around talking, auto exotica stretching as far as the cam can see...

And some of the associated costs of having a touch up at the 'Ring..

Optional extras available at additional cost include armco repairs, safety car attendance, vehicle recovery, track closure, hospital stays and helicopter rides. I recommend avoiding these. If you can't, then the following price-list may help:

* Removing damaged armco: €10/metre (x2 or x3 or x4 for multiple-height sections)
* Replacement armco: €31/metre (x2 or x3 for double/triple height)
* Removing damaged armco posts: €5.10 each
* Replacing armco post: €39 each
* Safety car attendance: €82 per 30 mins (car + 2 people)
* Circuit closure: €1,350 per hour
* Recovery truck: €175 (inc VAT)

Pretty sure the track was closed for about 30-40mins during that one...

Soggy day out there today...

Pretty slow day.. Most of the cars I've seen have been Evo's, a Porsche or 2, the occasional BMW, odd Mk2 Golf and the like..

Just saw a Range Rover head thru onto the track... :thumbup:

Edit: Just saw the BMW M5 Ringtaxi head thru the gate.... What a wild ride that'd be..

:burnrubber: :thumbup: :burnrubber: :thumbup: :burnrubber: :barf:

I don't bother myself with Mercs... Despite the history of that particular model, it'll always be an MB... :thumbdown:

Plus I've put it thru its paces on GT4 on the ring, and it's a POS... :biggrin:

One of my buddies in Germany lives about 10 minutes from the Ring. :) Having seen his videos etc, I can't wait to live on it myself!

Another texxer with keen eyes spotted this:



Who ever said the Germans don't have a sense of humor... :laughabove:

Not a bad line-up. That appears to be a Noble M12 in front, followed by a 550 Maranello, and then I
believe that is a Viper GTS-R bringing up the rear. Not bad. Not bad at all.
