Nurburgring Lap Times

Officially the Fastest Lap Times of the Circuit (click the number to play the lap)


On 19 August 2009, Radical Sportscars from Peterborough, England, successfully smashed the Nürburgring Nordschleife Production Car Lap Record by eight seconds, with racing driver and ‘Ring expert Michael Vergers at the wheel.

The 2009 SR8 LM’s time of 6 minutes 48 seconds beat a record that has stood since 2005, also set by Radical in a previous-generation SR8. The record attempt was witnessed and confirmed by both the UK’s evo and Germany’s Sport Auto motoring magazines.

To confirm the car’s road-legal, production car status, the car was driven from the UK to Germany for the attempt, using the same road-legal Dunlop Direzza tyres for both the journey and the record.
