Myself and 45 other people hold the lap record for the slowest lap of the Nurburg Ring

We went round in a Lucketts Coach and have a Video to prove it. The Hairiest moment came around the banked hairpin as there's only one line a coach can take, otherwise it topples to the bottom

We had such a laugh as we had motorcycles, Ferraris, M3's and 5's, Etc comming around corners at breakneck speeds only to be confronted by the back end of our Coach. The looks on the drivers faces where priceless as they swerved to avoid us and swearing loudly as we'd buggered up their lap and cost them their 10euro entrance fee

One thing I thought was a little morbid where the spectators that picknicked around the curcuit on all the dangerous bends with camera's in hand waiting for accidents to happen.

Was a great day, finished off by visiting the Museum and seeing a little bit of the DTM that was going on in the new Circuit.

There's a claim of approx 45 mins... http://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/t...&t=202995&i=20

"Many phenomena - wars, plagues, sudden audits - have been advanced as evidence for the hidden hand of Satan in the affairs of Man, but whenever students of demonology get together the M25 London orbital motorway is generally agreed to be among the top contenders for Exhibit A."
