Nurburgring: Das Movie
The Nurburgring is a big, epic circuit. Therefore any attempt to convert its bigness and epicness onto the silver screen must be equally big and epic.
On the evidence of this trailer, it looks like the upcoming movie Titan, by French director Stephane Benini, might get rather close to conveying that bigness and epicness.
It’s certainly there in the sound department, mixing classical strings with The Best Sounding Racecars Volume III (order your copy now in time for Christmas!). We’re especially loving the beefy noise of the Aston DBR9 – which one’s your favourite?
Before you hit play, just a couple of pointers: first, make sure you’ve got your speakers turned up DEAFENINGLY LOUD. Second, at six minutes it isn’t exactly a tiny bite-sized trailer.
But what else would you expect from a film about endurance racing at the world’s longest race track?
Want to comment on this?
That was hardly about the nordschiefe. That was just a LMP and GT round at the GP circuit, but then in the last 3 minutes it was just about heaps of different tracks. I saw Spa and Oulton Park, and then I stopped watching it. Very misleading title.
Hey Bushby, not surprising really, from the same people who brought their "show" down to Australia, and then used Toyota MR2's with fake Ferrari bodywork to hoodwinck the pubnic into thinking they were using reall Ferraris. C'mon guys, we know you have the budget for real Ferrari's, so why short change the paying public and fans? Remember, we're car nuts, so YES, it matters!!!
Yes - looked a bit like a lot of tracks!! the last bit looked like donigton! The db9r noise was worth the wait !!
