BMW ring Taxi vs Porsche 911 on the Nurburgring (The Nordschleife!)
This is the best race track in the world. The Nordschleife!
This is the one were every bike on the track gets in the way of the cars, but to be fair it isn't a race, and the bikers are only there sight seeing not to ride fast. This video is from 2007, BMW M5 vs Porsche 911 (the passenger is a biker and has just been riding round the track, now he goes in the Porsche, several times he says how 'incredible' the car is he even points out how much the bikes slow the cars down drastically especially after the bus, listen to him, the bikers think they are going fast!)
People can make excuses for the riders in this video, which is fine, but at the end of the day it's a video about cars not bikes, and for those saying it isn't Sabine, IT IS Sabine driving the BMW! it is the old M5 with 450 bhp!
I meant, it's easier to ride a bike than drive a car, to learn at least. Not to take anything away from the bike riders, it takes skill, lots of skill and balls of course, or stupidity, which ever you like. No I wont ride a bike at these kinds of speeds, I like being alive, yes I will drive a car at these speeds, it feels safe, even if it isn't!
Multi-Car Crash At The Nürburgring | October 2011
An 8 car pileup at the Nürburgring.
Yesterday around 14:00 in the afternoon, a serious traffic accident happened on the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring with a total of eight vehicles involved including the famous BMW M3 Ring Taxi. The accident took place in two phases with drivers from several European countries involved.
The accident was probably caused by speeding. In the section called "Bergwerk" a construction company set up by a construction zone. While most of the drivers realized this, a fourth driver was trying to brake, but could not prevent a side collision with a car driving ahead. The car then hurled into the grass. After 50 meters it came back on the road where it hit two other cars.
The accident situation was recognized by three other drivers and they were able to slow down their cars. Another car, a BMW M3 ring taxi, did not pay attention and crashed against two of the decelerating cars. The ring taxi eventually stopped against the guard rail. Except for one single vehicle, all cars were severely damaged and no longer roadworthy. The estimated damage is more than € 100,000.

Sebastian Vettel driving GT5 RedbullX1 prototype at Nürburgring GP Course
Find more GT5 videos on http://gtchannel.com. In a world where modern professional racing is restricted by regulations, the X1 is a machine born from a fantastic "what if" dream of Gran Turismo: "What would the fastest racing car on Earth, free of any and all regulations, look like?" And the only way to experience it is in Gran Turismo 5. Initially the X1 Prototype was a single-seater canopied prototype wing car with covered front wheels. Powered by a 1500ps direct-injection V6 Twin turbo, on paper the performance would have been spectacular, producing a top speed of 400km/h (248.6mp/h) and a maximum lateral acceleration of 6G. But once Red Bull Racing was brought on board to be a partner, the X1 really took off. Adrian Newey, master aerodynamic engineer and Red Bull Racing's chief technical officer, suggested "Fan Car" technology, a long-held dream of his, be added to the design of the X1 Prototype. A "fan car" is a vehicle having a fan mechanism which forces the air out from underneath the car to reduce air pressure under the car's floor. The resulting suction draws the car to the ground surface and creates a massive amount of downforce. And because it can create downforce regardless of the vehicle's current speed, it dramatically raises it's cornering speed capability even in low speed corners. Thanks to the insight of Mr. Newey, the X1 Prototype design was transformed. A large fan was added to the rear end of the body to implement the Fan Car technology. Plus, Newey provided additional input into the the design of the front and rear wings and rear diffuser, dramatically refining the vehicle's aerodynamics. As a result, the virtual X1 Prototype was able to achieve an astonishing level of performance. Its new top speed was 450km/h (279.6mp/h), with a maximum lateral acceleration reaching up to 8.75G, pushing the vehicle to the very limits of what a normal human body can withstand.

Corvette Z06 on Nürburgring (passenger Sabine Schmitz)
A relaxed lap of the Nürburgring Nordschleife with Sabine Schmitz as instructor and passenger. This is the same day as the German F1 Grand Prix took place on the adjacent GP track in July 2009. There is a grandstand on the Nordschleife at T13 which is why there is a speed restriction (30 km/h).
Unfortunately my car is so loud so I could hardly hear Sabine at all. The BTG time is around 8:56 on this lap, but my record is 8:09. The objective was to learn the proper "raceline" instead of the "touristenfahrt line".
