"The highly respected German motoring magazine Sport Auto were at the Nordschleife yesterday to set their lap time. Expect their lap to be announced shortly. This is an independant test, always using the same driver, Horst Von Saurma, rather than a marketing event by the manufacturer so in my opinion gives a true reflection on the car. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horst_von_Saurma
I drove into the Nordschleife car park yesterday and saw two green RS's. Thinking nothing of it I walk over to the guys from Evo magazine and chatted to them about their cars (GT3, V10 R8, AM V12 Vantage and Corvette ZR1). They told me the RS's were press cars given to Sport Auto and their test driver Horst Von Saurma was out on track, moment later he passed us flat out on the Dottinger Hohe straight on his flying lap.
