And could it be done in a NASCAR vehicle?
Didnt Dale SR drive it one time?
As close we we’re gonna get
I want to see Prime Jeff Gordon try his hand at Spa in a Cup car, then an F1 car
Tony and probably Bell.
What NASCAR driver could handle Nürburgring?
All of them!
^ The correct answer.
How are we defining 'handle'? Most of them, given a suitable car and some practice, can probably turn laps within 90% of the average speed in a couple of hours.
I pulled those numbers out my ear but there are no stats or evidence to support any others
Hasn't this season started YET?
Probably all of them in a stock car based off this
Everyone except for Mike Senica, stupid question.
They should consider holding races at the Nordschleife during the 24h-race week. Would definately get more attention than the Hockenheim round they've been doing since 2018.
JR used to joke that he drove Sonoma for several years before he realized it was paved....
At what level? Could they lap it without binning it like one of the local yokels? Yeah.
I'd think 95% of the curreent national series drivers could compete for wins in a GT3 car.
can you imagine boris said on the 'ring?
*in his prime
Interesting...I think most of them would struggle to be competitive there in a VLN race or especially the 24h. Kyle Busch did reasonably well at Daytona in a GT3 but was outspoken about how uncomfortable it was and the traits he had to learn and unlearn, and he was there to be a #2 driver. Go from Daytona, where it’s mostly on-throttle to the Nordschleife and I think it’d be an awfully big adjustment.
He won the 24-hour-race in 2005, sharing a BMW M3 GTR with Andy Priaulx, Duncan Huisman and Pedro Lamy.
