Default a lap @ the ring (with a big crash)

Hi again guys.

Here's another lap on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Driving past a big crash @ Brünnchen (about 7min in the video). Happy to see the driver was ok, standing on the other side of the fence. Sets a little stuck in you when you see something like that. Made me take it a bit easier for a couple of turns..
Hope you enjoy it!
Regards Setra

Wow,
that sucks...

Is the track bumpy? I noticed around the 6:10 mark the camera bounces around a bit.

Yes, it's very bumpy. plus my camera was hitting against the a-post and made this video even more bouncy..

I particularly like the section of track that turns left, is banked and made of concrete. Looks wild!

"Is the track bumpy"

A little reading:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nurburgring

I thought the Nurburgring was required learning for M-car owners

The Karussell is one of the best corners on that course.

Someday if I ever get enough money, my M3 will go to it's proper home and do a couple laps. Until then I have to make due with rental cars

A few tracks in the U.S. have incorporated a Karussell into their designs:

yeah, the karussell is something, but not my favourite part of the track. a bit too slow and bumpy for my taste

My favorite part of the track is the corners that leads you to, and includes the foxhole. (about 2'20-2'40 in this video) If you get your line right through those, you can hold full gass and those apex just comes flying at you on each side of the car. Then you come down to the foxhole, and the road suddenly starts to climb while your in the corner. The g forces making you feel like your brain is going some place near the passanger footrest and the car makes it thru the corner. It's kinda hard to explane, but i hope you get the idea
