    Searched this thread for Hans Stuck, but nothing came up, so I'm posting this here. It's very grainy but is an amazing lap :bowdown: with great commentary by the driver.





    The sound of that tranny whine; oh my days!

    It's not my favorite view.

    Thank you for posting it. I've liked this car since it came out and it's nice to see it being put through the grinder at the Ring.

    Dug up this video from a long time ago.
    Ever wondered how the ring is, filmed through the rear window ?

    I still can't get over the sound (it annoys me) but that's a mighty lap, like their Pikes Peak run was also. That car must be a blast to drive, especially around the Ring.

    Should've turned his phone off, and that was a hell of a bird strike as well.

    Bye bye birdie bye bye :eek:

    Is it me or was he overdriving that lap?
    I lost count of how many times he had to rescue that lap.
    Combine that with the bird strike & what appeared to be fogging issues towards the end...

    I think if he brought it back half a tenth in effort, he’d go faster.

    When I drive it I lose count before Fuchsröhre - besides it's fun ;)

    If that was Christian at the wheel, he wasn’t taking his normal Christian line through the corners before Flugplatz & had a collection of saves and missed apexes by then.

    You mention Flugplatz. I’ve never seen him hit the outside rumble strip in the middle of that corner & that means he was a tyre width away from having a huge meeting with the barrier. So lucky.

    Very nice video.

    As a bonus, at around 6m 45sec he passes a VX Holden Commodore with New South Wales registration plates. That's a long way from home :eek:

    What impressed me most was his anticipation and patience with the traffic.

    I haven't checked to see if this has been posted in here before - but here's a nice onboard of a Peugeot 205 GTI T16 annihilating everything in its path around the ring. That poor Supra....
