Ring­ing in a Record

Automobile - - Contents - By Steven Cole Smith

Given the ob­ses­sion that has de­vel­oped around lap times at Ger­many’s famed Nür­bur­gring Nord­schleife, it seems al­most ab­surd that the world-record lap of the Green Hell stood for 35 years. It’s also fit­ting that the record set in a Porsche was just shat­tered by one. We go be­hind the scenes at the ’Ring as the man­u­fac­turer makes his­tory—again—this time with its 919 Hy­brid Evo race car.
