    Me and my friend just started we're driving a FALKEN GT-R on Nürburgring Nordschleife. 24 hour straight (12 hours each) and breaks in between not exceding 10 minutes, the car is stock, no upgrades at all. Wish us luck.

    Nice. Someone did this before on the La Sarthe Endurance before. Can't wait to see a Nurburgring one.

    Best of luck! :tup:

    3rd- C West s15 race car

    the lap times are low sevens 7:10 to 7:20 and the fastest lap is 7:06.902, the tires we are using are the superhard racing tires

    pit stops are every 5 laps or 6 laps and one major accident which I already overcame which was running out of fuel halfway down the track.
