My Ford GT on the Nurburgring for the FIRST TIME!

It's time for my Ford GT to have its first laps around the Nurburgring Nordschleife! The opportunity to drive the Ring with the GT was nearly missed thanks to some surprise snowfall but thankfully it dried up and that meant a chance to experience the ferocious levels of performance available in the new Shmeemobile.

The Ford GT is by far my most special, most expensive, rarest and also the fastest car that I've driven on the Green Hell, as well as being my first laps of this season; so playing it safe and sensible is the name of the game. However, kicking off from the car park outside the Touristenfahrten entrance let's get things rolling and go straight out onto the Nordschleife to experience what it's like.

For the purposes of some photos I've dropped it down into Track Mode which hugely firms up the suspension and in the case of the Nurburgring with it's bumpy tarmac, I'd say it's too much and would be better suited to Sport - but I shall try that next outing. In any case as an experience to drive, the GT is so unbelievably focused and hardcore that the drama could not be more extreme. Sharing just about everything with the WEC racecar, the GT is much more suited to a smoother surface like those found at Silverstone, Spa and the like and that will come in time to experience.

For now, a very memorable moment, experiencing the Ford GT on the Nurburgring, using it as it was built to be used!
