|The Nürburgring Cornering Map|
A tick off our bucket list was the invigorating experience of being able to race in an BMW M3 around the Nürburgring race track. We have had a passion for high performance cars since our childhood days. The sound of a mind-bendingly, reason-defyingly fast engine translates into a sweet serenade for us. Ironically, when we met many years ago... our interests were so much alike that being able to appreciate the Nürburgring experience together has definately proved to be one of our highlighted memories together.

Open to the public on Sundays (gratitude to the Germans for allowing this), visitors have the opportunity to rent a car to drive around the infamous track. These cars which range from small hatches to larger sedans are insured and fully modified for the track which gives you the sound peace of mind that its meant to be driven hard lap after lap.
Famously known to all Formula 1 fans, being fans of drivers such as Ralf Schumacher and Michael Schumacher or the gaming addicts of Grand Tourismo 4... the Nürburgring is a popular attraction for many driving enthusiasts worldwide. For us, it was the history of the track and the challenge it provided especially since it differs from regular roads with the absence of intersection and oncoming traffic as well as the absence of a blanket speed limit.
