This video was recorded on a private track day at Nürburgring Nordschleife featuring totally empty track which was driven with Nissan GTR. Driver had to wait 2 hours at the parking lot and make just one lap with cold tires while the instructor was sitting next to him, not the easiest task!

Video is taken with multiple small HD cams and outside footage with Canon EOS 5D MkII, data for the video was takeng from RaceChrono and then used RaceChrono2Avi to build a video file of the speed, distance and laptime.

Here is a nice lap from Nordschleife inside a tuned Nissan 350Z which is trying to keep up with tuned Porsche 996 Carrera. Porsche is driving fast but let’s the Nissan catch up on some of the long straights. Guys prove a nice 8:13 BTG laptime with passengers on this partly damp track after some afternoon rain. Again using RaceChrono2Avi for the data overlay and RaceChrono for the datacapture during driving, these tools we support! Enjoy!

Just a normal lap of the Nordschleife in a early Sunday morning. Still rubbing my eyes at Tiergarten after only being awake for 30min before the lap, shouldn’t miss morning coffee but what can you do. Example of a first lap of the day where even driving fast I’m not taking any chances at braking, before knowing if there are wet spots or fluids at the track. Few slower cars and one bike lead to lifting at places which would be flat, but better to be safe than sorry. Also there is a bunny at Aremberg running across the track :)

Car is G-Power supercharger powered BMW Z4 3.0i, with totally stock suspension and non-RFT street tires. Only other modifications are bigger E46 330ci brakes with Pagid RS-29 pads and some Motul RBF600 fluid.

Video is taken with Sony 1080i HDV cam, data for the video was takeng from Racelogic PerformanceBox, then using RaceChrono and RaceChrono2Avi to build a video file of the speed, distance and laptime.

M3 E46 at Nordschleife

Like most of the years now, we spent 2 weeks in the Eifel mountain village between 24.6.-6.7.2009. Most from the group travelled again from Finland via Finnlines ferry and some came from central Europe. Again we had rented our usual “Casa” and met there on Wednesday afternoon. Few cars went straight to our trusted garage at ProSport to have the regular brake and wheel stuff sorted before the evening’s TF time. Read the rest of this entry »
