Hello everyone

After some heated racing on the 28th, the points show Reinhard still ahead with 137 points and Ryan Ottens and Derrick Kroch vying for second place just behind him with 110 points each. This should get interesting, especially trying to keep time when you can hear your assailant whispering sweet nothings to you with the hum of his exhaust...

Fun fact: The Nurburgring track (try saying that ten times fast) is the longest track in the world. It cost about forty million USD to build (if dealing with today's Wall street shenanigans) and was a major means of employing the people of Nurburg, a small town in Germany. The track is about 20.8km long and still used to test supercars today.

Here's a list of 10 supercars and their lap times:

10th: Germany keeping it in the family with The Porsche 911 GT2 RS (2010) at 7:24 driven by driven by German test driver Horst von Saurma.

9th: Corvette showing up with the C6 ZO6 in 2011 at a time of 7:22, racing with the tyres set wider and a 7l engine. Driven by Jim Mero, an engineer with Corvette.

8th: Closely following the ZO6 is the Corvette C6 ZR1. Jim Mero took the wheel again in a bid to outdo himself, and outdo he did. This V8 model sports a 6.2l engine and uses carbon ceramic brakes (along the lines of the Aston Martin DBS, Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren and Ferrari models overall)
He put a 3 second gap between the ZO6 and ZR1 bringing in the ZR1 at 7:19 also in 2011.

In 7th place we have the Donkervoort D8 RS in 2006 with a time of 7:14.9. This model looks a bit to me like the Crossfire and Morris series moulded into one. Handmade glory authentic to individual tastes. Driven by German driver Michael Duchting and modified slightly for race purposes, naturally.

6th place goes to Lexus in 2011 with the LFA Nurburgring package with a .3 lead on the Donkervoort at 7:14.6...ooohwee...This one had specialised light alloy wheels and was initially designed with the Nurburgring track in mind giving Japanese driver Akira Iida a thrill as he drove this limited edition beauty across the finish line.

Pitstop in 5th place with the Dodge Viper ACR at 7:12. Driven in 2011 by Dominique Farnbacher and coming in at an almost cost-effective way of $95,000.

4th place goes to the Gumpert Apollo Sport (first time I've heard of this little beaut actually) in 2009 with a lap time of 7:11. 6 speed manual transmission and a 4.2l supercharged V8 engine helped bring this baby round the bend with Florian Gruber quite possibly shitting himself behind the wheel.

And now for the top 3.
3rd place goes to Japan with the Nissan GT-R Nismo. Michael Krumm took this twin turbo V6 engine around the track with a time of 7:08 in 2013. Dunlop provided SP Sport Maxx GT tires and some sheer adrenaline too.

Germany in the running again, again with Porsche and the 918 Spyder in second place. Sheer speed at a time of 6:57 in 2013. Marc Lieb drove a rare version of this model sporting a 4.6l V8 engine and springing from 0-60 in just over 3 seconds.

And the crowning glory goes to......drum roll please....

The Radical SR8 LM with a time of 6:48 in 2009. Michael Vergers drove this iconic car twice on this track and holds the 2 fastest laps recorded, both in the British engineered Radical. However, from 0-60 in 2.8 seconds and being incredibly nimble, it offers little else in the Creature Comforts department but nobody cares when you have a fastest lap time under your belt - twice!

Yours in Motoring

Great piece Lee.
Very interesting to see how much faster the cars have got over the years. Also, I believe the track has over 150 corners! Tough.
