The Nurburgring has become the pinnacle circuit for manufacturers to set lap time records in order to prove that their latest product is the king of the ring and therefore the best in its class.
There will probably be a whole generation of car enthusiasts that think that is all the Nurburgring is used for. That and some endurance races.
The reason I love the Nurburgring is because it is the track that anyone can rock up in their battered old shitbox car and battle the infamous track with nothing but bravery and stupidity ushering them on.
This means that there are a lot of ridiculous things setting lap times around the Nurburgring and this video will prove that more than you thought.
