Here’s a not so authorised clip of a Mazda3 MPS lapping the Nürburgring Nordschleife on a regular Touristenfahrten day. It’s a good example of how bikes and cars hold their speed in different sections of the track. It’s also a good example of why cars and bikes sometimes don’t mix too well on TF days. While there’s no incidents in this clip, you don’t need a lot of imagination to see how things can go wrong.
If you’re planning your first trip to the Ring, this is a timely reminder to make sure you read the pages in the Safety section of Ben Lovejoy’s website.
Have fun out there, and stay safe.
