Nurburgring Lap Times

One of the best ways to experience the Nurburgring Nordschleife is in a private event or trackday. It's also one of the safest ways to time your laps. Without the pressure of a real race meeting, but with fewer dangerous traffic 'moments' than in touristenfahrt.

Nüburgring Nonsense Records - the SUVs


While the Vipers had their fun on Monday, Chrysler were also shooting this Jeep Grand Cherokee on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, aided by a Helicopter-mounted gyro cam. While I applaud all vehicles equipped with a 470bhp 6.4-litre Hemi V8, this latest flight of fancy did get me thinking...

New Lexus LFA proddie lap record confirmed


After the rumours, tweets and generally ill-informed gossip of last week Lexus Global have stepped up to the plate and delivered the raw in-car footage of Akira Iida's fantastic 7m14s lap of the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Make no mistake, in BTG's opinion this is the new production car lap record. More details and the full video after the read more jump...

Lexus LFA 7:14



It's been reported that the Lexus LFA Nürburgring edition has turned in a 7m14s lap of the Nordschleife. If true that would make it the quickest production car ever to lap the Nürburgring Nordschleife... however, until we see proof (i.e. unedited video footage), the LFA will not be on the BTG Fastest Production Cars page.

See the only mildy erroneous-so-far report here (note how Autoblog thinks the GT2RS is the fastest car around the Nordschleife despite Porsche not giving anybody any proof for over 12 months).

THEY'RE COMING! Electric car zaps 'Ring record...


Did you hear that? No? Don't worry, we didn't either. Normally I can hear a lap record being set quite literally 1km away as I sit in my Nürburg den. But not this week.

Because this week Toyota Motorsports GmbH brought their electric Radical to the Nürburgring Nordschleife and blitzed Peugout's half-hearted previous record...


BTG laptimes updated...

I hadn't updated the laptimes in nearly a month, I think I've added everything that needs to be added. All submissions over 10mins hit the cutting room floor...

Check out the laptime table here!

Highlights include:

  • Motorcycles are quickest again - crazy 7m26s lap in heavy traffic
  • Renaultsport Twingo goes sub-9 with just 133bhp
  • Some hairdressers car is still not sub-8


2011 ZX-10R: Gyrocam lap of the 'Ring


This is professional racer Tim Röthig lapping the Nürburgring Nordschleife on a prepped Kawasaki ZX-10R with a state-of-the-art MotoGP 'gyrocam'. Thanks to the Motorrad 'Nordschleife School' he also had a completely clear couple of laps.

Be warned: even with a flying start and all those advantages, it's still 2-seconds slower than a housemaid from the Eifel... video after the jump!

Do you enjoy BTG?  

BTG is NOT a massive operation; it's just me, my camera and my computer. And a lot of help from my friends and family. Thanks!
