    Re: Video Heidfeld with Bmw F1 on Nordschleife

    Thank you very much!

    A very nice video. Impressive to see the acceleration of a F1 in the Ring.

    In any case, he should slow down a lot to do such time lap...

    Re: Video Heidfeld with Bmw F1 on Nordschleife

    Very well attended event. Would be nice to see a real GP event there, but very doubtful if it would ever occur.

    Re: Video Heidfeld with Bmw F1 on Nordschleife

    I guess he stopped for doughnuts and coffee midway through the lap why bother going "to the Nring Northloop" and creating all the hype if they were going to just parade?, at that pace, Sabinne could have lapped him on her M5...

    F1 GPs did take place there until 1974, I believe it was. Niki Lauda's big accident prompted a change of venue for the German GP.

    The circuit is totally unsuited for use by today's F1 cars, which are adapted for racing on billiard-table smooth tracks with limited changes of elevation.

    Re: Video Heidfeld with Bmw F1 on Nordschleife

    I was there and damn it's something to always remember! The best part wasn't so much watching the car but rather hearing the car's V8 scream bounce off the valley walls as it came and went...

    Andrea: Not sure about the time. I was there at the Planzgarten. Very, very impressiv. I thought it was something about 7 min. A friend just told me 7.29 min fort the fastest lap.

    However - what ever time it was - you don't have to be a professional driver to recognize that this car was much, much faster than any VLN car driven in the afternoon. It was a little frustrating. This car goes so easily - even it isn't build for a track like that - it is simply amazing to see the difference between those VLN-GT3s, Maseratis or what ever and a F1-vehicle.

    I'm a really Porsche fan. But I have to admit that this was truly a great present from BMW.

    I have a short video (5MB). Don't now how to share. I can send it to wherever you want.

    Thanks for the share! I've heard, though, that the 8:34 time was the lap with the photoshoots (that you can clearly surmise through the video).

    Supposedly best time was 7:39? I guess he'd give Walter a run for his money in the CGT

    Agreed. The F1 car had to chicane around the Karousel. Just the brief video showed the changes in attack lines as a result of the suspension setup up the modern F1 car...

    A modern F1 car's tub would "run aground" on the transition ridge from the asphalt banked circuit to the concrete of the Karussell, leaving all four wheels in the air!

    8.34 also with the F1 track

    Once upon a time, fragile little grand prix cars raced on circuits that had no huge run-off areas, no enormous corporate hospitality suites, and lots of blind corners. Then the 70s happened.. Drivers like Jim Clark had already died at the wheel of their racecars and three time former champion Jackie Stewart was pushing to improve safety in all forms of racing, particularly Formula One. In August of 1976, defending champ Niki Lauda had a near-fatal accident at the Nurburgring in Germany. The Green Hell, as the 14 mile long track was called, would never again experience the shriek of a modern Formula One car. Until yesterday, that is.

    The Nordshleife (North Loop) would be relegated to lower classes of racing, while a new, modern, antiseptic Sudschleife would play host to the European Grand Prix in the nineties and into the twenty-first century. On April 28, BMW Motorsport held a special event at the 'Ring and brought out several race cars including an M3 GTR and and one of last years F1 cars. BMW-Sauber driver Nick Heidfeld did three laps in the F1.06 which was stock aside from having the ground clearance maximized to survive the bumpy surface of the old course. He managed a best lap of 8:34 and a top speed of 275 km/h on the long straight.

    Re: Video Heidfeld with Bmw F1 on Nordschleife

    Very cool video regardless. It had some really nice camera shots. I was also interested in how he drove through the "carousel," I suppose he avoided it to not bottom-out the car. Once again, great video. Thanks for posting!

    Re: Video Heidfeld with Bmw F1 on Nordschleife

    thanks for the clarification Andrea

    Re: Video Heidfeld with Bmw F1 on Nordschleife

    According to this source:
    http://www.sport1.de/de/sport/artikel_1128218.html

    Heidfeld clocked an "inofficial time" of 5:58 (NoS without GP-circuit) That would be 27 sec. faster than Stefan Bellof's legendary run in the 959....

    Here is a vid taken by the BMW-Sauber-F1 team + some background infos (no sector times for NoS/GP-circuit mentioned)

    It's hard to believe from the vids that we saw...

    Re: Video Heidfeld with Bmw F1 on Nordschleife

    I agree, it doesn't sound very likely. He would have to be going FAST, as in right on the limit, to beat Bellofs record by 25 seconds

    If you've seen the inboard video of Derek Bell going around in 6:41 in a Porsche 956 on the Nurbrugring, you'll know what I mean.
