Recently, the video below (the first one) surfaced on the net. Behind the wheel is Andreas Gülden, a chief driving instructor from the “Formel Super Racing”, who seems to have a fair bit of knowledge of the ‘Ring as well as some serious skills in car control!
We have all seen the footage of fast cars, and recently also motorcycles, lapping the ‘Ring to set a new record. During the past years, it has been a war between some manufactures on this piece of challenging piece of tarmac known as the Green Hell.
This video is different, though. It was made in wet weather and, even though the single-seater car is not on slick tyres, it is all over the place yet always in perfect control.
This video got me thinking of the previous occasion a lap video of the ‘Ring captured me in this way. It was a video shot several years before I gained enough motoring experience to know how impressive it is. It is a video that is well-known in the petrolhead sphere and one which combines skill, a proper sportscar and one of the better-known German tuners. Sit back and experience RUF’s CTR Yellowbird.
