For instant action go to the following timelines:

7min15 to 20min30 is my first round on the wet track

Then some playing with my new LSD in the clay

At 37min's and some seconds you see me pass the track

I feel happy to.. thinking about buying a E30 325i for track use with some collegues.

The cost is 16 euro for the whole Nordschleife

Anyone can use it, because it's a tollroad. In the vid you'll see a camper coming up on a hill doing 5km/h

In a certain corner there was a touring car driving on the outerside of the track, with some grey pigeons in there waving at us, while it was being passed on the inside of the corner by a drifting M3 CSL.

The cars that you see there is absolute madness...

On the road to the track you see the BMW driving school, with about 50 E46 M3's :

On the parking lot it's a lot of Porsche 911 GT2, GT3, Carrera RS GT3, TVR Chimera, Nissan Skyline R32/33/34 (?), a lot of E30 M3, even Cecotto's

Lots of Evo's VI, VII and VIII, Impreza WRX etc.

It's a car fanatics wet dream :lol:

Even I got passed by about everyone who could pass me, but I don't know the track, it was wet and I didn't want to wreck my car.
First time I did 13min for the whole track, the second time 11min.

Lucky? I've used 7~8L of gas on the track, on 40KM, so that would be 1:5

It's still 270km single drive, but hell, it's worth the drive

Be ashamed of yourself...

But watch out, your tyres will fuck up easily.. maybe buying some Toyo Proxes R888, street legal slicks

i saw on discovery channel, people lining up, for yeah 15Euros per lap or something, but then how is it timed, do u do it yourself? and if its just a normal road, isnt there more than one entrance/exit to it? im kinda confused, i thought it was fully a track nowdays.

Nope It's a tollroad, only one way ofcourse. You have 2 entries, one half way in the middle where the track goes over a village.. really strange to see that

Speeds are unlimited, but there is one corner where the speedlimit is 90km/h, and there was a piece were they were busy with the road (pilons, nobody working) where the speedlimit was 70km/h.

So it's a closed road, in trackform, where you can drive what you want.
Funny thing is that your insurance is valid on the Ring

Timing must be done yourself, because it's not a official track and you have to brake on the end of the straight line just before the "finish" (there isnt' any, because it's a road...)
