    Careful what you wish for...

    Amazing car, the 919 now it has been unfettered by needing to meet regulations. Boost function looks useful!

    That said, that its taken over 20 yrs to beat Bellof's record shows the achievement that was in the 956.

    That sounds so so cool! I always wonder why that webby has an extra 'e' in the word Nurburgring?!

    As you say, I used to look upon Bellof and the 956 with nothing but awe! Incredible it has taken this long to be officially broken, that said, there is chat about unofficial F1 times from back in the day.

    What were they lapping in back in the 70's with Lauda?

    Yep - that's impressive.

    Almost as good as I used to do it on my X Box 1 and my Accura LP1. But he never bounced it off the barriers like I did mine.

    I love watching Le Mans and I always thought the NŁrburgring circuit was the best there ever is. Have actually ridden around it on my old motorbike on an open day. Benefits of living in Germany for 10 years.

    That's how you write Ł if you don't have or can't use (as e.g. web addresses) an umlaut.

    Ohhh check you out, Carla

    A IOM fanatical mate said all the TT class records were smashed this year too. Is that right?

    Impressive, Vlad. The place is my favourite on earth. Been 5 or 6 times but I’ve never driven it.
