Default VW van record around Nurgburgring


A Volkswagen Transporter has set an unofficial van lap record around the Nürburgring Nordschleife with a sub 10-minute lap time.

The time of 9 minutes 58 seconds may not sound that impressive but considering that the fastest hot hatch record around the 'Green Hell’ is only 7.43.8 seconds, set by the Honda Civic Type R, it can been seen as quite the achievement for a commercial vehicle.

Behind the wheel of this record breaking lap was HMS Racing British Touring Car driver Rob Austin who managed to beat the current record held by TV presenter and professional motor racing driver Sabine Schmitz. She set a lap record of 10 minutes and 8 seconds, back in 2005 using a stripped out ford Transit
