It’s official: Porsche’s mad prototype has gone around the Nordschleife quicker than anything.
Last year, I wrote a story about Stefan Bellof’s 6:11.13 Nürburgring lap time set back in 1983 in a Porsche 956. I said it was a record that would remain unchallenged unless Porsche took its 919 LMP1 car to the ‘Ring. That’s exactly what it’s done.
