16-Year-Old Crashed Mom's Car On Nürburgring While She Waited In Parking Lot

We’ve got a late entry for Mom of the Year, folks. Bridge to Gantry reports that a Swiss mother-son duo who got busted doing 133 mph in an 80 mph zone on the way to the last open tourist drive day of the year at the Nürburgring, but she unleashed him alone for a few laps of ‘ring hoonage, where he binned the car.

Man Amazingly Walks Away From Airborne, Multi-Rollover Nürburgring Crash

Here’s your occasional reminder why the Nürburgring Nordschleife is the most dangerous track in the world. This Renault lost it in the Schwedenkreuz section of the track, went airborne after hitting the wall, and then rolled several times to a stop. Miraculously, per Bridge to Gantry, the driver only has a very sore… »9/21/15 5:05pm9/21/15 5:05pm

The Nürburgring Nordschleife Is Not That Scary

I always overestimate how terrifying something I want to do is going to be before I actually do it. It’s probably for the best, but kind of annoying, nonetheless. These feelings of impending doom were a million times worse with the Nordschleife, given its reputation for eating n00bs. Guess what? It wasn’t that bad.

Porsche Junior Is My New Favorite Nürburgring Nordschleife Conquerer

What, you thought I was talking about a Porsche Junior driver? No, no. I love Carrera Cup as much as the next 911 fanatic, but think older.

I'm At The Nürburgring And It's More Awesome Than I Could Have Ever Imagined

“That’s really the team that got me into sportscar racing,” I said at dinner, pointing at Allan McNish’s table behind me with my fork. Then, of course, I realize that holy crap, I’m pointing at the Audi LMP1 team with a chunk of dead cow, and that’s exactly how surreal and amazing a trip to the Nürburgring really is.

How I Changed My Mind About Changing The Nürburgring

A lot of people bristle at the idea of ever changing the Nürburgring. Given its long and storied history as a kind of sacred place where machines and humans are put to the ultimate test, why would you want to change anything? That’s what I thought too, until I realized the ‘Ring has already changed a lot. And that’s… »7/28/15 2:46pm7/28/15 2:46pm
