Video of a couple laps in E90 M3 on the ring. low angle

I took some friends out for a few laps after the end of the last VLN race. I mounted one of the cameras in the lower front air dam which gives a nice close up view of the track. This is the VLN endurance series configuration which includes the short configuration of the GP track. Its my favorite configuration actually. Sorry about the low light, its the last weekend in October and late in the afternoon. Tires are Mich Super Sports which I'm very impressed with. I didn't bother to drop pressures before going so they did balloon about half a lap in, but they were still very predictable even with over 45psi in them when we were done. ambient temp was 50F and they still heated up very well. the car is on brembo gt's which also did their job very well with consistent braking performance over 2 consecutive laps carrying ~600lbs of precious cargo.

Wow, that looks super fun!

I was there 2yrs ago but did not get to drive the GP section. Would love to be able to drive that part. Do they open it up for Touristfahrten at certain times of the year only?

What mods on the car? Just brakes and tires?

The GP track has its own tourist lap opening times. you can see the schedule here.

http://www.nuerburgring.de/angebote/...ixstrecke.html

For a 20 minute session it costs 38. Usually after a VLN race, the combined track layout is open to the public as they don't want to mess with moving barriers. there are also certain dates when they offer the combined course. during these times the lap is charged as a standard lap around the Nordschleife.

The car has eibach springs, stock edc shocks (non competition package) and an ACS muffler. the wheels are 19x10 Forgelines with 275 tires all around.
