    Three questions:
    1. If this is a qualifying session, then why are there other classes on the track?
    2. Why was the camera placed in such an awful postion?
    3. What didnt they show a full lap?

    Man the down force on that thing is ludicrous. Incredible piece of engineering, and an incredible driver behind the wheel at that.

    BTW, can anyone tell me what the top buttons on either side of the wheel do? Seems like he presses them fairly often. Indicators?

      James Glickenhaus. , you, sir, are the man. I love how you curse in interviews. You don't try to pretend racing is some sanitized sport like golf. I graduate law school this Saturday so I can run my own businesses. I consider you a role model, sir.

    is this 702 or 704? 702 led for most of the race until brake failure. phenomenal team / car. video makes it easy to see why they are so competitive. high hopes for the 24.

    That's one of the more impressive laps of the ring I've ever seen.

    They should have put this guy in the 991.2 GT3 lap, his balls on the corner entry are unbelievable, specifically 1:28. He has so much trust in the downforce.

      Modern race cars are so heavy and low powered - it's not surprising they're this slow. The 956 was not far off HALF the weight, and had another 150bhp on this car.

    getting through the traffic between 2:00 & 3:00 is a great example of how these multi class pro drivers earn their money. getting through that traffic like a man possessed. any would be ricer who thinks they could jump straight into a race car needs to watch that.

      it reminded me of those videos with idiots overtaking and undertaking random traffic on motorways to show off, except in theirs the other cars weren't racing around at all. This however made it seem exactly like that. Insane skill right there

      Not sure this car offically lapped Nordschleife but it doesn't matter as it's a race car. On VLN variant of Nordschleife Endurance (22km one) best lap times are somewhere around 8:05-8:10. Even tho SCG003 belongs to it's own SPX class it's performance is comparable with GT3 cars.

      :) Stephen didn't drive a 962 when he set his record. The NS was a lot faster then changes have slowed it down over the years. Stephen got a huge tow from Jacky in an identical car. His 956 had a ground effect floor. Those are no longer allowed nor is the ride height he drove at. If you took our SCG003C racing at the Ring which set the fastest lap during the last race, lowered it, put on a ground effect floor, removed HP Restriction (our lap was set with 500), removed 100KG of required ballast we'd easily beat Stephen's record as would most GT3's and DTM's. In two weeks we'll have two cars racing The N24. If any of you are around stop by our pit and say hello. The comparison video is interesting. We're 17s faster than a 918 and 12s faster than the Lamborghini. As our S is a lot closer to other GT3's street versions I'm still of the opinion that with 200+ more HP, 250NM more torque even on street tires we'll beat the 918 and the Lambo. On a warm, dry track without traffic I still think 6:30 is possible. The key is downforce. Our race car has 1000KG of NET downforce and and pulls 2.5G's of mechanical grip. Our road car will have 900KG of net downforce and pull 2G's on road tires. The downforce is amazing. The difficult thing is believing it's there and keeping your foot in. Best Jim

      Fucking hell calm down...

      Yes it does sound similar to a 962, both have a deep turbo 6 cylinder noise. Unless you have hearing problems or some sort of strange definition of "by far" then what I said is correct.

      The rest is just insane ramblings of an obsessed blind hater of a car. All these purpose built racing GTs are fantastic. There have been so many in the past, not always competitive but always great to see/hear. Saleen S7, Lister Storm, Panoz Esperante, Mosler MT900, Marcos LM600, Jaguar XK Emil Frey, Spyker C8, TVR Tuscan, Morgan Aero 8, Venturi made one. Only a sad cunt and not a true car fan would whinge about the existence of these cars.

      No, it doesn't sound by far like a Porsche 962! That's just wrong. And a 962 would drive circles around this car. Look at Stefan Bellof's alltime lap record in a Porsche 956 on the Nordschleife in may 28. 1983, in 6 minutes and 11 seconds. Sorry man, but this Glickenhaus is just an unsuccessful poser racecar for boys, which looks comic-ish... great for schoolboys taste, indeed! The bigmouthed Glickenhaus sr. tells bullshit all the time. It's not that difficult to spec his racecar as a pseudo production car on the inside and call this a "street car" which can do laps in 6.30 minutes time. But that's just poor and doesn't count. Produced in such few numbers, this car is just like a race prototype and it surley can do the lap in under 6.50 minutes... because it's a fucking racecar...! For Glickenhaus it would be the "absolute new recordholder" on the Nürburgring... It's just bullshit.
