A few weeks ago, we popped along to Germany to sample some fine local cuisine and partake in some Schuhplattling. Imagine our surprise when we discovered a race was occurring!
Intrigued, we tracked down the outrageous sounds and outrageous crowds to the town of Nurburg. There, lots of endurance racers were storming around a purpose-built amphitheatre of automotive torture. We also discovered a rare gem amongst the hordes: Jim Glickenhaus’s P4/5 Competizione.
He finished 40th overall and 3rd in the E1-XP2 class at this year’s Nurburgring 24hr race, a fine result for an outrageous machine. Now, Mr Glickenhaus has released some tasty footage of his team’s adventures at James May’s least favourite place in the world. They’re quite long, but you have to watch. If only for the in-car footage of night-driving. And the noise. Oh the noise!
