Nürburgring Nordschleife

If you haven't figured it out yet, I am fascinated by the Nürburgring Nordschleife. This place is about at the top of my list of places to visit if Carrie and I ever have the opportunity (money) to do a European tour. Maybe when we are looking to buy a new Porsche 911 GT3, we will take European delivery of it and swing by the 'ring for a lap or two...

Anyways, here is a slick video produced by BMW that gives a good run down of what the 'ring is about and its history.

How cool are those shots from the Ring Taxi as Sabine is drifting around a corner at high speed in a M5. As much fun (and scary) as it would be to drive the green monster in your own car I would almost prefer be driven around by a skilled professional such as her. That would probably be even more of a thrill than me driving myself as there is no way I'd have the skills or knowledge of the track to drive it at such a high level. Like an roller coaster times 10 in my opinion.

Hopefully someday I will get the opportunity to experience it.

Off I go to lap the Nordschleife a few times on Gran Turismo.
