Almost everyone knows that Nurburging is one of the most challenging race tracks in the world. For the Nordschleife layout it is not only long, 20.8 kilometers or 12.9 miles, but it has no less than 154 turns. More than 300 meters (984 feet) altitude varies from low to high, so it’s no surprise that Jackie Stewart calls it Green Hell.
Although he is not a professional race car driver, YouTuber Misha Charudin knows his way around the ‘ring’. These two laps on the famous German track should be enough to convince you that he has the ability to handle the circuit in the city of Nuremberg. He took a BMW M2 for a spin, and as you can see, it wasn’t a normal M2.
In addition to being a competition model, the performance coupe was a purpose-built track toy with an aggressive aero and a snatch-out interior. With the Recaro front seat and a full roll cage, this M2 was modified to kill high speed Nurburgring angles. It also has carbon fiber door panels for weight loss, which is why regular door handles have been replaced with straps.
This hardcore M2 competition was in its natural habitat
It was a blessing in disguise that he forgot to turn on the camera’s image stabilization. Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either. We get a much more accurate idea of what it feels like to run a hardcore M2 contest in Nurburgring. It certainly looks less smooth than what we used to see in the videos shot in this circuit.
In the middle of the lap, Misha lowered the tire pressure four times a day because he felt the rear of the car sway a little. The second run turned out to be slight, but the M2’s back was still very playful, especially at high speeds.
Understandably, many viewers are asking him not to return the image stabilization. It adds an extra layer of immersion to POV videos that we hope to see more of in the future
