Now the Nordschleife is no stranger to feats of speed and record-breaking. It is the hallowed ground where automakers bring their latest performance models to stake a claim or break the record. This time, however, the scenes were a little different...
A Land Rover Discovery ran rings around a Nissan GT-R around the Green Hell. Sure, this video is from two years ago, but the point we're trying to make is in the right hands any vehicle can be a fun car to chuck around corners. You don't need an E36 M3, or Skyline, or Supra or BRZ!
Watch the video below:
To add salt to the injury, the uploader M Gott explained that this was in winter and the Discovery had winter tires on, hardly a recipe for a 'tauge session' around the Nurburgring.
Quite aptly, as the first commenter on the video said 'it's not what you drive, it's how you drive it'
Now if you would like to hone your driving skills either to be a better all-round driver or a track day specialist then the Motorsports Association of Malaysia (MAM), has just announced a series of driver training and skills development programs, supported by the Ministry of Youth & Sports (KBS), Sepang International Circuit (SIC) and the Malaysia Speed Festival (MSF).
