This year, I was invited by Jaguar Land Rover to try something new: Change tarmac and high-grip underground against loose and slippery gravel and sand.
Although I can tell already now that this is totally different to anything I did before (and therefore my chances to win the ticket to Peru are low), the first test runs were fun like hell!
Stay tuned! More pictures and videos will follow (on my soon to appear blog)!
The Nordschleife at the Nürburgring is known to be the most challenging race track in the world. No room for mistakes, no safety zones, too dangerous for Formula 1. Actually, it is also known as the "green hell".
This year I tackled the track with the powerful Jaguar F-Type R AWD, instructed and coached by professional race drivers (Tom Schwister, Altfried Heger, Wolfgang Drabiniok) and lapped it in under 9 minutes!
Some collegues and me participated at the KTM Summercup which took place at the Wachauring in Melk, Austria.
Due to forecasted bad weather, the track was made artificially wet and the cars were equiped with rain tires. Not optimal conditions but still a lot of fun...
I've participated in the Aston Martin Challenge (driver casting) on the Thruxton Circuit in Hampshire, United Kingdom. This track is the fastest racing track in the UK, and I was doing 30 minutes in an Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430.
Unfortunately, it was raining and the track was very wet but still I managed to finish 2nd in this lap-time race.
Afterwards, I tried 5 laps with a Sports 2000 racing car (unfortunately, I am too tall to fit in the aimed Formula Renault) - a very great experience!
Pictures and videos will follow soon.
I've participated in the Jaguar F-Type Challenge 2015 at the Nürburgring Grand Prix racing track. Coached by professional race drivers (Ralf Kelleners) in the morning, we were racing 30 minutes in a Jaguar F-Type R (550 HP) on the famour Nürburg Grand Prix racing track.
More pictures and videos will follow soon.
