Travel back to 1995: Nürburgring shenanigans captured on VHS

[youtube width=”720″ height=”450″][/youtube]
What does a Nürburgring Nordschleife tourist drive Sunday look like these days? E30s and VW Golf Mk2:s getting beaten to hell. What did it look like 20 years ago? Exactly the same. Somehow, nothing has happened: the same old cars get driven on the track all the same, it’s just that the crashes and spins are captured on digital memory now and not tapes.
This video takes you right back to those good old videotape days. It’s more than an hour’s worth, so get cracking!

    Thanks for this.
    When I started autoxing I mounted a VHS-C cam to my MG. Pretty rough, not much to gain since the head bounced all over the tape and made it unviewable. Didn’t matter since cameras in cars were banned.
    Years later I mounted it in my A4 to capture track events. I was able record track times within a half second or so. The good old days.

    The Daewoo Lemans to Miata ratio seems upside down.

    Man, that corner sure sees a lot of trailing throttle oversteer and over correction.

      It’s the first chicane they come to.
      I learned about it on Gran Turismo.

    1 hour 18 minutes?!?!?!
    …why didn’t I check this earlier in my work day when I had absolutely nothing going on?

    Is that the same purpleish GTI? over and over?
