From Pistonheads.

Great feature - very lucky man Chris from Pistonheads to be given the opportunity to be driven and then drive with Dirk!

Legendary 'ringmeister' talks PH round the circuit in the Nissan GT-R

Video: PH Meets Godzilla At The 'Ring

Here's the lap that PistonHead's GT-R and Nurburgring fans have been waiting for - test driver and 'ringmeister' Dirk Schoysman talking us around the 'green hell' at serious speed in the car he famously helped to hone at the circuit.

Incredibly, Dirk has completed more than 14,000 laps of the track which - as he described in the video documenting PH's visit to Nissan's Nurburgring Technical Centre - is a distance similar to driving seven times around the world.

So it's surprise that he knows the circuit as well as anyone ever could, an incredible depth of knowledge that extends not just to which way the corners go (which Dirk reckons anyone can be confident about after a mere 50 laps), but every lump, bump, camber and undulation, as well as the myriad of different surface textures that make the Nurburgring such an epic challenge.

Which I guess is why he makes it look so easy!

Pistonheads seem to be getting some great GTR content.

We have , what 130 owners here, and we are not getting in on this stuff?

Because we're already converted!

Waste of time getting us lot involved with this stuff, better for NMGB to try and spread the word amongst the heathens over at PH...

Great piece. I love seeing the GT-R lapping the Ring but seen a lot of vids of it by itself. Really want to see a best motoring style 3 lap race to show once and for all the capabilities of the GT-R over the 911
