    Video: Fall in love with the madness of the Nürburgring 24-hour race
    1408579200

    We like the 24 Hours of Le Mans just fine. With the world's manufacturers in attendance and a varied field of classes and cars circling a high-speed circuit that's partially hewn from public roads, the appeal of the crown jewel of endurance racing is obvious.

    We talk about Nürburgring lap records all the time around here, but they're always qualified by some category or another: for production cars, for sedans, for front-drive hatchbacks... But nobody talks about the all-out record very much. In qualifying for the Nürburgring 1000 km race ...

    1407441600

    The Nürburgring Nordschleife has the reputation as one of the most difficult tracks in the world to master – deservedly so. With 14 miles (22.5 kilometres) of roadway and about 160 corners over a massive amount of elevation change, the amount of grip can change from turn to turn. As ...

    Scroll down the leaderboards of Nürburgring lap times and you'll see mostly racing cars, supercars and sports cars. Delve deep enough and you'll eventually get to hatchbacks and sedans, albeit the most performance-focused of their kind. But a hybrid? Sure, the Porsche 918 Spyder posted the ...

    Spy Shots: Cadillac prepares to top its own 'Ring record with upcoming new CTS-V

    It was a big deal back in 2008 when the original Cadillac CTS-V clocked a lap time of 7:59 at the Nürburgring, making it the fastest sedan ever to lap the Nordschleife to that date. Not many four-doors have bested that time since – the list consisting pretty much only of the Porsche ...
