RUSH TO THE RING! My Ford GT Challenge to Reach the Nurburgring

It's a rush to the Ring in my Ford GT! Firstly, let's find out if the Ferrari's battery comes back to life, then straight on the way in the GT for a road trip to the Nürburgring. With the challenge to squeeze in a lap on the same day, timings run tight, but what a car it is at both the Green Hell and on the Autobahns!
Almost as soon as I had got back to London, it's time to get immediately back on the road in the other direction, this time with the Ford GT and a long drive with a challenge to make it to the Nürburgring in time for a lap during Touristenfahrten! However, the first problem is to resolve the flat battery in the Ferrari GTC4Lusso, that was completely dead upon my return before.
Having been the victim of a fuse blowing the mains switch, meaning the battery charger had disconnected, I borrowed an almighty Ctek re-conditioner from Windrush, a nearby storage facility. Thankfully this has done the job and pulsed power back in, bringing the Lusso back to life and saving the requirement for an expensive new battery at this stage. When all is running, the next mission is to load up my luggage into the minimal space available in the GT.
To date my Ford GT has been well traveled; going across the USA, on an adventure to Sardinia, and all around Europe, but I've never really taken it for a proper tour with a lot of luggage simply due to the fact you cannot do that with a passenger. While I had big plans back in April and May, those were all pushed to the side meaning since it was in Chicago at the start of November, the car hasn't seen much usage and it's time to get that changed.
The drive from London to Nurburg, and onwards to Frankfurt is approximately 600 miles or 1,000km on the road, and door to door including a stop for a lap and dinner, about 15 hours or so. However, I've never previously made the journey and then immediately followed up with a lap on the Green Hell the same day, so a new challenge to get there without hold ups against the traffic at the Eurotunnel and in Belgium.
With all going well, and making it just in time, Misha jumps on board with me for a lap where we're quickly followed out by Robert in the Ferrari 488 Pista too. Knowing well it's the first lap back with the GT, it's an easy enough cruise around to get a feel for it on a busy Touristenfahrten session, but nonetheless great fun as always.

I feel like I've been in London for only 5 minutes after coming back with my AMG GT R Pro, but this time it's into the Ford GT for a run straight to the Nurburgring to squeeze in a lap the same day with Misha and Robert. With both the Green Hell and Autobahns to be enjoyed, the Ford GT does not disappoint!

Do you think I could drive your GT around the Nurburgring and have the course to ourselves for a personal best/ lap record? Because I wanna see what the Ford GT is capable of. The only thing I have to worry about is the low speed corners. There's only about 5-6 right? So I should be fine if I decided to go all out first lap but i will take it easy on the first lap or 2 so it should be good and fun.

I don’t have a super car but I buy a new truck every other year. When I get my brand new truck home I drop the tailgate and crack it w/ a hammer. The 1st dent n or scratch is always gonna happen. No point in owning something if you don’t use it for what it was intended for.

Nice driving. Just out of curiosity, why no gloves? You would get more grip when racing and you wouldn't destroy the alcantara on your steering wheel, when racing or driving every day.

Why do you go via E40 (Brussels) ? The part in this video where the traffic jam start (Zellik) is always an issue just outside Brussels, most daily accidents happen there and it lasts till past the Vilvoorde bridge. I would choose the A25 in France (pass by Lille) and via A27 take the E42 in Belgium follow the E42 direction Germany. Then exit the E42 in Eupen ( BE ), follow direction - Monschau ( GER ) - Schleiden ( GER ) through the "Eifel" to Nürburg...

@Schmee150 , I don t understand something ? If I was having your budget , I will just pay a transport to bring the car to the nordschleife to don t do 5 hours highway with your supercar , in any car on the planet 5 hours highway is boring ....and I say that by living in Germany so ! I feel like it is a waste of using such car stuck at 110 -120 on highways 90% of the time ... just my opinion ^^

I know u guys all like the derestricted german autobahn. But i want to raise awereness that there is a "huge" political debate going on in germany if they should make the entire autobahn limited to 130kph. And it even gone so far that a member of the green party which is currently pretty increasing in strenght that if the come to reign with other parties together and don't end up in the opposition (the parties which are not activly reigning but still paticipating) anounced that they will force the other partie(s) to get the speed limit. The chances are currently pretty high that the party (Bündnis 90 die Grünen) could end up in the position to do so, but not 100%. The next voting for whole Germany will be in autumn 2021. Sorry for bad political english^^
