    Saw this elsewhere but thought I would post it here. Ignore the first few minutes...

    My thoughts - GT is taking the right lines and is probably being driven well below it's capabilities and the M3 is being ragged within an inch of it's life and the lines are awful

    I've no doubt the M3 is quick except on the fast uphill section at Kesselchen where the GT just leaves it for dead...and suprise suprise the film ends due to "traffic" lol

    Enjoy

    looks like a UK plate but it's LHD :confused:

    Also regarding that 'ring vid I think i'd be careful if I were driving a Carrera GT, where as i'd happily stack an old BMW any day which could explain what you see :D

    Just a question of economics really, production of that type of car is too limited to warrant an RHD version and they know that anyone genuinely interested in one isn't going to be put off by the position of the steering wheel.

    Awesome video, that M3 engine sounds awesome, and even gave the porsche a bit of a good time! Simply awesome more clips like this please. Was that M3 really gunning it, because the engine sounded like it was on tick over. Whats the BHP on that monster?

    By the way, anyone know how good a 10:40 minute lap is at the ring in an 06 1.4 Golf?

    Edited - Not 10:30 but 10:40 sorry.
