    Thanks for posting.
    Did they do full speed laps or just photo parade driving?

    Here the next to last photo of the group from behind shows the open trunk lid of a sedan/saloon open ahead of the pack carrying a photographer in the trunk for group action photos. I do this all the time for my articles. Also none of them are taking the apexes so it really looks like parade laps.

    Letting them loose on that track in those cars at full speed would mean very significant risks for non pro drivers but in any case we have not heard of any accident so all good.

    They drove the first laps with an instructor in the front 488. All laps after that were driven very carefully. Many idiots have made fun of it. The Nordschleife is very dangerous and the FXX are not built for this route. A small error ends in total loss because there are no exit zones. There are many peaks and valleys. Extreme valley and mountain rides. It takes at least 100 laps to get some feeling. Good drivers drove at least 500 laps. The FXX is totally over powered for the Nordschleife. All FXX got rear mounted additional exhaust damper. I have some videos but do not know how I can put these online, but can not link via Youtube. Roberto Viva took some pictures from the car.

    Thank you Tim, glad all are safe, very high risk there with any cars so with these... Glad all are intact.
    Fabulous photos thanks. The black car in photo 3 in the Karussel (followed by a silver one) seems to either be putting abnormal load on the right front tire or it is punctured, the rim is literally against the ground... Not a fan of very low profile tires.

    Thanks I have driven many laps there and in very low to the ground cars it is best to drive on thd outside of the banked karussel portion even if it costs time.
    The fact that you did some damage to your car illustrates it.
    The next problem is the very high harsh kerbs best avoided, then the dips, bumps, hollows etc...
    Love the green hell though, summer 85 when I worked in Porz I walked the entire Nordschleife in the woods, fields right next to it, that took 7,5 hours sometimes going through the bushes where there was no foot path, my jeans were green after that but it was worth it, plus I saw Violati in his GTO go by at the end, it was during Old timer GrAnd Prix weekend, great memories.

    Karusell driving is allwas funny. Outside with a car with much downforce, you are faster...now I have a steel screw in the cooler, no more plastic. To lose it was not funny....

    Thank you for the nice Video Link

    A red FXX-K Evo had a breakdown at Quiddelbacher bridge. Unfortunately it is not possible to see on the picture whether it is a technical defect or a sheet metal damage on the left side. In any case, he was somehow brought out of the way, without the tow truck had to drive back all the way. Such a VIP special treatment does not even exist for a Königsegg!
