    My M3 GTR Nordschleife dvd came today.

    If anyone is still looking for that special Chrsitmas gift for the BMW enthusiast on your list, look no further. First some details, the dvd is three laps in a M3 GTR on the full Nordschleife from an onboard camera. Each lap is with a different driver, Hans, Boris and Duncan Huisman. It appears to be qualifying and/or practice for the 24 hour race there.

    The dvd is about 20 Euros, but it will be closer to 30 Euros by the time you get it to the States. Even with the crappy exchange rate, well worth it.

    Quick review:

    Hans takes the wheel first. In addition to the onboard camera, there is also an inset screen with a camera focused on the driver so that trhe viewer can also see the drivers interactions. I never got to see the GTR run in the ALMS. This car is unbelievable, esp. compared to the other cars on track. Hans is so smooth. I've seen other in car footage of him. So smoooth. You can tell he knows the 'ring! The speeds all the drivers maintain are breathtaking. There are plenty of slower cars to blow by. In one section, Hans is momentarily held up by a red Porsche, you can see him give the driver a stare in the review mirror after he overtakes. I laughed out loud. Hans is very excited at the completion of his lap. He runs a 8:19.9 and gets pole!

    Boris is next. He encounters more traffic and less polite traffic than Hans. Again, the speed are spellbinding. There is a great piece where Boris threads the GTR through several small (Hondas?) cars at an alarming rate of speed. I don't know how long the straight is, but it appears to be the only time any of the drivers get to high gear and they are absolutely flying. The gear noise is extremely loud on the on board mic. Near max engine speed, you cannot even hear the exhaust.

    Duncan is the final driver. He encounters even more traffic and is pretty aggesive with some of it. It is amazing how rough the non-F1 section of track is. The drivers really take a beating. I'd like to see the GTR exiting the two banked sections that are patched with concrete from an external camera. That has to be a heck of a ride.

    The dvd is available here:

    Evidently, it is some sort of limited edition (999 pieces/stuck). You will not be disappointed in the roughly thirty minutes of footage. One note, the dvd is PAL format being from Europe. I don't know why they didn't make it region free. I viewed it on my pc without a problem.

    Happy Holidays All!

    Go BMW!

    I got mine the day it was released. Fantastic.

    And I would urge those of you thinking about it to make sure you get the real one. The lads who put it together are a shoestring operation and really decent. Pirated copies affect them in a big way. They deserve out support.

    Great! Screw the guys who actually made the

    effort to bring this thing out.

    You don't seem to understand the logistics involved here. These guys busted their arses to make a decent DVD and some prick rips of copies and starts selling them to BMW enthusiasts.

    If this sort of thing happens on such a small production run, it adversely affect the producers who have invested time, effort and money btringing it to us, This is a limited market and every pirated copy hurts. Maybe next time they will forget aboput the BMW crowd, if this is the support we show them.

    Ausverkauft. Sold out. You might see if the

    Ring-Racing has any copies left. They had a few in their display case last time I stopped in.

    Please support those who support the 'ring, not the pirates!
