Words fail me... experiencing the fastest lap of the Nürburgring Nordschleife of my life in the RENNtech AMG GT3! After RENNtech's own AMG GT R Pro blasts around some quick laps including one of just 7:00.0, it's time to hop on board to experience a mind blowing 6:24.6 Bridge to Gantry lap of the Green Hell in a thoroughbred racecar.
The RENNtech Track Experience at the Nürburgring Nordschleife brought together an incredibly array of AMG GT Rs and GT R Pros amongst other serious machinery, including both my SLS Black Series and GT R Pro. None standing out more though than the RENNtech R760 GT R Pro running some very quick laps during the trackday including one of just 7 minutes dead, faster than the official lap record even for the GT R Pro that Mercedes set of 7:04.63 by almost 5 seconds and almost certainly there's more to go.
However, the unique opportunity to enjoy a ride onboard the AMG GT3 is something only offered by RENNtech in this way; as if straight from the N24 or VLN races, it's an opportunity to hop on board in this case with Manuel Metzger to really get a feel for what a car like this is, and my goodness it does not disappoint. Blasting around the Green Hell the ride is over 30 seconds quicker than I've ever experienced before, thanks to the slick tyres allowing the most insane levels of grip and with brakes that seem to bring in vast amounts of power at the last possible opportunity. It takes some understanding to mentally interpret how on corners where normally a car needs to brake, the GT3 allows the driver to still be under foot flat acceleration.
Naturally I had to follow up with some laps in my GT R Pro, probably the quickest I've ever driven it as I get to learn the lines and route better than before, but obviously having to pay close attention to not trying to copy the GT3!
Huge thanks to RENNtech! You have to experience this car if you ever can:
And of course to Manuel Metzger at the wheel:
Thanks for watching, Tim
