Lightbulb AMG Driving Academy: The Nurburgring

AMG Driving Academy: The Nurburgring

We came to conquer the Green Hell - a racetrack so dangerous, only precious few races are run there.The AMG Driving Academy at the Nürburgring is a trifecta of automotive scholarly brilliance: there are cars and then there are AMGs; there are tracks and then there's the Nürburgring, and there are schools, and then there's the AMG Driving Academy. But I'm not yet aware of this as my shuttle picks me up from the Frankfurt airport. As we get closer to the famed 'Ring, Porsche after tuned Porsche drives by in the other direction, a gaggle of Nissan Skylines buzz past us, wastegates whistling. An old bi-plane flies by, doing loop-de-loops in the sky above us into the sunset. I smile as I realize that I'm at Ground Zero in the promised land of engine-powered mayhem.

I watched a show on the speed network the other day in which they were testing Aston Martins there. That would be a trip to drive that course. I'd probably embarass myself, though. If I had a car worthy of such a course, I'd probably be afraid to really put it through its paces.
