A lot of you guys who follow me since 2010 asked me where this video just passed!
It was just my absolute best video in term of views, it cumulated 6M views in 2019 :-000
For one reason that i do not know, it was just retired from youtube, so here it is again!!

The intro is also very nice because we see the peoples at the entry barrier and also all around the track and now due to the situation, we cannot see this anymore :-(

HERE IS THE STORY of this lap
In 2015 i had this incredible Ariel Atom 3 300hp, with the aero kit (front and rear) and decided to seriously going at the ring with it for training, because i already felt in love on this track and this particular car with absolutely 0 assistance so an incredible challenging car who accelerated from 0 to 100 in 3sec, which is quiet good in 2015...the only problem of this car were about the fuel tank who only allowed 2.5 laps before empty :-)
Also not the best in term of security if big crash there :-(

As you can see in the vid i start the lap in TF classic entry, and found by pure hasard on front of me this incredible Corvette z06 who let me passed at T13 but chased me closely till Adenauer forst then i let him pass again and he leaved at Adenau exit because empty fuel

Ok this was not so fast lap, but this video were very popular because it was soooo immersive due to the camera mounted on the roll bar!
The thing i touch with my left hand is the turn indicator :-)

The car were on TOYO R888 and adjustable Bilstein suspension

    You and the Corvette driver are a perfect example of how to drive "the ring"... Nice to see such skills and awareness at all times.
    Take my hat off to both of the drivers.

      I never allow my opponent to pass without a fight. & when i have the opportunity to pass. I like to do it with a Leo Pitt manouver. Of course I've only raced the video game version. Edit It's supposed to be accurate though. That should count for something. Adrenaline about 1000 times less.

    This was immensely satisfying to watch. I don't think I've ever watched a full circuit of the Nurburgring before, especially not with so much other traffic, I really like how drivers put on their signals while driving at speed to let you know they've seen you approaching and that its safe to pass. How much I wish the typical American on the highway had even an iota of that amount of situational awareness.

      @Jozo Zovko Nothing about learning to deal with ice whatsoever in Northern Minnesota, at least in any driving test. Once you pass it, then you get to learn about ice on your own more or less. (This is where it helps to have a seasoned driver to explain to you what you have to do to correct.)

    Watching his hands you can see how incredibly smoothly he is driving. His knowledge of the track is apparent.

    If you look at the keychain, at least in the left hand bends, you can estimate the G force. Hanging 45 degrees should be about 1G, any closer to horizontal is greater. Fun to watch!

    The Ariel Atom is an absolute laureate thesis on purity of function. Note how it outturns the superbikes while at the same time outpacing more powerful cars at high drag speeds without all the fancy aero bodywork. Automotive masterpiece.

      @CorePathway The vette has 600hp, not the atom. The original atom had 190hp. And the atom's kerb weight is even less than that. But they have improved the atom - they're on the Atom 4 now, which has a civic turbo engine, new suspension, brakes, the lot. Not to mention the atom V8 they made.

      I was out on my bike a lot today and maybe 6 car drivers either intentionally pulled over to let me pass, or stopped at junctions to let me go when they had the right of way 😲 'How jolly nice those car drivers were' I thought 🤗 The fact that I was wearing my brand new, yellow, hi-vis jacket (which makes me look uncannily like a police officer) had absolutely nothing to do with it I'm sure.

      And nice to see two drivers of two serious machines of different fundamental philosophy (machines, not drivers) giving each other respect. Ideal would have been they'd come off, swapped cars, driven hard again, and then gone for a few steins afterwards. I'm sure they would each have enjoyed the experience of driving a very different vehicle to their own.

I’ve also owned the flying C6 (literally lifts up the front end on a windy day). This video was great many thanks. Lost of corners here which my C6 would have just said no to lol. So I can see why the Z didn’t want to try and compete with that enormous go kart.

      Coming from New Zealand where there is zero to nothing road manners, this video was great to watch. European drivers are much more ön to it"!

    I kept picturing Jeremy Clarkson's face with the wind blasting him while driving!
    It's amazing how easy it is for this beast of a car to take on EVERYONE! I loved
    every minute of it. Well done! 😎

    Great video. I love the bit when the 3 series makes you wait because it has to overtake a mini, but it takes forever, and then you smoke him a heartbeat.

    I can't tell you how much I enjoyed this, it is, as you say, immersive. I can't imagine what it must be like for old Porsche drivers to be passed at half their speed again. And your closure times are minimal, you really must trust the other drivers.

      @NEH tru tru... Merc did well if it caught atom up and paced it. Probably had the legs on the straights.

      @Beef Based Very possible. Then again the Merc was nowhere to be seen when they started, so at least he was able to keep the phase, and more.

      Agreed, @Beef Based - that Atom was not at full chat when the Benz went by.

      @NEH I think maybe he'd already eased off just before the end but the Merc just REALLY wanted the Atoms' scalp anyway.

    "Ok this was not so fast lap....." On that day, with that exact car, I seriously doubt that I could drive it in twice your time. Thanks for the vid. That was a total rush.

    Exhilarating good awareness by all ,a few awkward moments when people had to move off the racing line to let you through or when vehicles we’re bunched and had multiple vehicles all doing different speeds

    That's a lot of (relatively) slow moving cars to weave through. It could probably be both frustrating at times, or just add to the challenge.

    The Atom needs a bit more power, which it can exploit on the straighter parts of the track.

      Maybe also one of the g-force indicators. I'm sure some of those corners at that speed would be pretty high g-force.

    I'd like to see the same race but with the camera mounted down low on the nose just a few inches off the track, preferably with none of the car in view. I think that would be an amazing viewpoint.

    Nice to see the little British ballet dancer beating the American muscle car. But only just! Awesome drivers both of them. Never realised a Corvette could be that good. Love the Atom. Would love to have one. Used to own a Westfield which was pretty insane.
