The Nurburgring is a formidable track that’s not only taken cars, but lives, too. Its endless corners weave for miles through German countryside, and litres of spray paint adorns its tarmac in talented waves of colour and shapes.
There’s no better place for a racing driver to test his art, and there’s no better place for a talented driver to come out on top. The layout of the track pushes the best of the best further, and whittles out the weaker drivers despite what they’re driving. It doesn’t matter if you’re at the wheel of a Ferrari. A talented driver with more seat time will most definitely pass you in his stock MX5.
This isn’t an MX5, but an NSX is no longer the fastest thing on the road. There are much faster cars out there on the road, but they were all eating the dust left by this Japanese supercar. And it’s certainly not everyday an NSX gets a near 7 minute lap time.
The NSX has barely been touched with only worn out D2 coilovers and Kumho KU36 tyres, and the driver, Fredrik Sørlie was struggling with oversteer and brake fade. But it didn’t stop him from getting one hell of a time and forming a relationship with the chassis.
He’ll be tuning the car to extract an even faster time from the car – we’ll be sure to keep you updated!
