VIDEO: Nitron BMW M3 GTS VLN Nurburgring Lap Record Onboard

As promised, here is the full video of the incredible 9m13s full VLN circuit (GP & Nordschleife) lap record in a standard E92 M3 GTS, modified simply with racing brakes, split rims, Akrapovic exhaust, Michelin street legal cup tyres and of course, the all-important Nitron NTR R3 racing suspension setup. It is deeply impressive stuff. So sit back and admire the cornering speeds and proper flat, neutral handling folks! That's how it's done, so bravo to driver, Stef Vanampenhoudt and Team Schirmer for the M3 setup and preparation, Mirage, Akrapovic and Nitron Suspension. The lap took place on a closed circuit, thanks to Destination Nurburgring, after several days testing, on March 21st 2012. The full 'North-loop' lap record, previously set by Sport Auto magazine, driven by chief test driver Horst von Sauma was also broken by nearly 20 seconds with a time of 7m28s. And you can see an interview with speedy Stef at:
Nitron have also recently set the speed record for a Nissan GTR with the SVM ‘Hulk’ and are the official suspension suppliers to the Bloodhound SSC world land-speed record. A brand well worth checking out at:
