Nurburgring record shattered

You have to watch this video. It’s Michael Vergers shattering the lap record for the Nurburgring Nordschleife – a notoriously difficult auto circuit – in the Radical SR8:

Vergers lapped one of the world’s most difficult circuits, the Nurburgring Nordschleife, in 6 minutes 55 seconds, 20 seconds faster than the previous production car record set by a Porsche 996 GT2.The 13 mile-long Nordschleife has 73 corners (many of them blind) and numerous abrupt elevation changes. No less a driver than Sir Jackie Stewart described the circuit as “the ultimate driver challenge.”
