    GTR Chase through the Green Hell

    A few weeks ago I was hired by Nissan for some work, and in the break time, I asked a good friend of mine who was an instructors and a Werksfahrer at Nissan, and who also raced a few times at the 24h race at the same place to help me chase-film the Digitec prepped, stripped out Nissan GTR around the race track. This is the HD video of the two laps that I filmed. The GTR was quite spine shatteringly fast, and seeing that it is completely stripped out of almost all creature comforts. That is the brand new Renntaxi on the Nordschleife, although passenger rides are a bit pricey and I dont really like the mandatory Dunlop color scheme, but either way, the lap was indeed nuts. Harry, my driver pushed the chase car, a slightly fettled 370z, albeit automatic since the car we used earlier that day had some overheating issues and the rest were used as team cars by Nissan. The car did let Harry shift manually but it was no double clutch for sure. I hope you enjoy the video, sitting in the passenger seat while the car was tossed around like some toy and Harry not even breaking a sweat brings a new level of respect for the guys who race at VLN or the 24h race on the Nordschleife. There was something about taking a production car within an inch of its life on a racetrack that thrilled me so much. To stand that kind of torture, it is unfreakingbelievable how tough the race cars must be and the drivers too.

    Welcome on board Alok, and thanks a lot for your report and the great video Smiley
    I take it that the GT-R replaces the Viper as the two seater Ring-Taxi while the BMW M5 continues as 4 seater ?

    Do you know what they'll charge for a pax lap ? If I recall correctly a pax lap in the Viper set you back 280 Euros. For this kind of money I'd rather spend some time in the passenger seat of one of the VLN racecars during the Friday practice Smiley 

    Recently I've encountered some GT-Rs (driven by advanced amateurs) during a track day on the Nordschleife. My impression was that the car (unless one tries to imitate Suzuki-san Smiley) is easy to drive fast and quite tossable for a car of this weight and size.

     Great video thanks for sharing it. I just have the feeling that comparing to the scuderia line, the driver is not always right. I'm not saying that i'm better then him

     Harry is a good driver, but he likes to drift Smiley

    Greetings, Alok! Welcome onboard and thanks for the video! 

    I assume you are talking about Harry M. who is indeed a great instructor. Attended one of the DEs he taught on. Say hello to him... Smiley
