Video: 308 GTi Hunts Golf Clubsports at the Nürburgring!
Hello everyone! Somehow I'm new here. No idea how I haven't stumbled upon this forum before.
I wanted to share something with you that might be of interest to you. This season I am racing in the Peugeot 308 Racing Cup TCR car in the VLN series at the Nurburgring.
If you haven't heard of VLN, you're not alone - but it's essentially Germany's biggest domestic GT championship, with up to 200 cars (yep, 200) in every race. Each race takes place on the full Nurburgring Nordschleife.
I have raced for Peugeot in a 208 GTi in the past (you can see my full Peugeot racing history here:
We had our first race last weekend and unfortunately, a fuel pump failure forced us to retire. We will be back in two weeks much stronger however, with increased power. We should be up to 330bhp with Peugeot Sport's new engine map. Here's an onboard lap in the race car: 308 TCR Race Car Qualifying
We also drove the 308 GTi 270 road car in the Tourist session after the race. In that session we obliterated supercars, and took the fight to VW's new Golf GTi Clubsport (as featured on last week's Top Gear). You can watch the video of that right here:
Thanks for reading and I'll update you after the next race!
