The legendary Nurburgring race track is in danger of closing down. Mismanagement of funds means that the Nurburgring is now in desperate need of financial aid, so much so that Sabine Schmitz - "Queen of the ring" as she's also known - has sent out this message on youtube.

It has been a while since the Nissan GTR set a lap time of 7:29 min at the Nurburgring, but such was the shock of it being able to achieve such a time, that it was worth adding on to our blog. Why was it a shock? well that lap time meant it was faster than a Porsche 911 Turbo, a Corvette Z06 , and get this, a lighter yet more powerful Porsche 911 GT2. It was so unbelievable in fact that Porsche even claimed that Nissan cheated to get that lap time.
