Nordschleife

Hi gents,

has anybody yet clocked the time on Nordschleife with 330i. I'm really interested about it since I still have to wait the obligatory 2000-3000km to break it in.

I would thimk that 8:45 is easily possible.

I've done about 15 laps with the E90 330i at the Ring but it was too crowded. Hermanh from Belgium did the same thing.

Quick question by the side: How does it work if I would like to drive with my car on the track? Is it open every day, entry possible for everybody, do I need a kind of "reservation" for driving there ??? THX

Open track days are on their website: http://www.nuerburgring.de
No reservation is needed, just show up pay at the ticket machine and off you go. Only requirement is your car have license plates.

I've read that BMW have set 09:00 full lap (i.e. not BTG) with a 320si... so a 330i should do very well BTG.

No - Nordshleife only.


I guess most know this, but just to clarify.

Car manufacturers generally quote times for the Nordshleife only (Full lap - not including the F1 track)

Most enthusiasts quote a BTG time (Bridge to Gantry) because on tourist days you can't run the main straight all the way through. There is a big difference in time between a full lap and a BTG lap. In something like a Porsche GT3, about 20 seconds.

Around 8.40-8.45 would be close I think.
