Hi Guys,

As the title of this topic already reveals, these shots are made during the VLN at the Nürburgring. I wanted to search for other places this time, because most of the photographers there take the same spots over and over again. Here are a few impressions:
The first one is the Jaguar V8-Star of the Zakspeed racing team

The second one is maybe not that impressive when it comes to the car, it's a VW Bora Station wagon and itis powered by a high-tuned 1.9L TDI (Diesel :) ) It stocks 225 horses.

The last one a typical U.S. car that most of you will probably love, it is the Dodge Viper.... awesome sound.

Hi dmwphoto,

First of all thanks for your reply.
The nice thing about these VLN-races is that there are different classes racing together. So, you have the top class of the 5000+ cc; for example that is the class were the Viper belongs :D Then you have a 5000 (max) cc class. This is not really representive because you have that black hyper-tuned biturbo porsche of Uwe Alzen Motorsport, this car is just insane it stocks well over the 700 horses and goes 25 seconds faster around the track each lap compared to the rest of the pack. At the end of the list you have the diesel class (VW Bora station wagon) and finally the division of 1.6 litre engines. Many different classes mean many cars, and that is very nice because one lap is 25 kilometres. The fastest machines lap it well under the 8 minutes :shock: :shock: 8) The first lap of the Uwe Alzen Porsche during the last VLN-race was good for a new lap time record.

Here is a pic of that black animal

Fks,

Zakspeed is racing with two cars actually. One of them is the Jaguar V8-star and the other one is the Viper. I can't remember them racing with a Capri :) But knowing Zakspeed, I definitely believe you when you say that it was a sweet car. Old Skool rulez :) No electronics, just pure hardcore petrol burners.

Regards
