Nu00FCrburgring Germany - Cars

The test of a true sportscar is how well a car will run on the ring. The german cars have ruled this track for years but now two American production cars have the fastest lap times.

I'm a car enthusiast, so I'm enjoying the competition between the Germans, Americans and Japanese cars.

    How'd that happen? I'm sure the Nürburgring has some quite sharp turns.

      > I think Bentley maybe have an agreement with the local police, never seen one pulled over.

      It is very similar here in Switzerland between the police and the tractor driving hobby-farmers which account for 67% of my village's population.

      Even if the police did take chase, they have no chance when we go off-road or hide in the barns.

      We meet on Monday's at the pistol shooting range and laugh about the week's events over a few beers.

      Of course we let the cops win the shooting practice, otherwise it wouldn't be funny... 😊
