Doing your homework before jumping the Nurburgring bandwagon is mandatory, at least if you're willing to get from Bridge to Gantry in one piece. Nowadays, there are plenty of Ring aficionados who can deliver a guide to lapping the Green Hell and we're here to bring you the freshest adventure of the sort.
Now, before we talk about this Nordschleife, allow us to point out that the lack of Ring knowledge that leads to plenty of Touristenfahrten (Tourist Days) crashes. As such, the Nordschleife specialists mentioned above have started promoting a trend that sees underpowered machines being used as Ring tools.

Case in point with the example we have here, which involves a VW Up! that wears the Sub7 moniker. We've talked about this Vee-Dub on previous occasions and, despite the tuning bits on the car, you shouldn't let yourself be fooled by its nickname, which is more of a trolling move than an actual target. For now, the machine is a sub-9 contraption, which is still impressive considering its 125 hp output and its high center of gravity.

Regardless, the driver of the Sub7Up provides a full BTG (Bridge To Gantry) guide, delivering plenty of details as he blitzes the infamous German circuit in the spiced-up supermini.

We're talking about Misha Charoudin, a Ring settler that has delivered plenty of such track stunts over the past two years or so. As for his passenger, YouTuber Shmee150 decided to get one hell of a shotgun ride here.

And since we're talking about so much info, Misha has decided to add some extra details, while using lap time reference points. As such, you'll find the said comments in a screenshot included in the gallery below.

P.S.: In the process, the Ring aficionado one-ups a Ferrari 430 Scuderia (you know, the track special), passing the Prancing Horse on more than one occasion.
