TrackandTuner.com visited our staple Trackday on the Nurburgring Nordschleife, organised by GranTurismo Events.
We have been big fans of GranTurismo Events, as you can see here.
However, this year was a real challenge. Due to COVID-19 we were all needed to be tested and travel restrictions where difficult. However we made it to the event, and even though the weather wasn't great, we still had a great time.
Forntunately we took theCrown VLN Megane RS as our photography car, so it would blend in with all the pure Trackday Cars. Because can you name an even more brutal pure trackday orientated car like the Porsche GT2 RS Clubsport?
We love to make some pictures on the Nordschleife and althought the weather was depressing, we went out to Wehrseifen for the first corner of the day.
I like this corner as it is a slow ingoing corner, with a slight downward slope towards Breidscheit. As you can see we had some lovely Porsche GT3 RS, Nissan GTR's and a duo of BMW M2's going out in the rain.
Driving in the rain is not easy, you need to take very different lines on the Nordschleife to be fast and have grip. Some knew this, other struggled in the cold and wet conditions with their Semi Slicks.
