Before we move on with giving you the story of a "casual" Nurburgring session among friends, one that's worthy of our attention, allow us to define the notion of Ring Wolves.
We came up with this term last year, describing the kind of overly experienced drivers, who know the 'Ring like the back of the hand driving glove DDD. These people prefer to keep things at an amateur level, engaging in Touristenfahrten (tourist day) events, rather than entering the costly world of sanctioned racing.

Nevertheless, their activity leads to overly interesting results, such as hot hatches that can keep up with supercars while jumping from one vibrator to another.

Ring Wolves generally drive budget track stars and, in the case of the video below, we're dealing with a Seat Leon Cupra DSG, as well as an E46 M3. While we don't know the setup of the Bimmer, we can tell you the Spanish hot hatchback is tuned, but the icing on this cake is that the two play with a Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Yes, the 991 GT3 RS.

While the driver of the Rennsport Neunelfer tries to mix going fast with keeping things safe, as he accommodates with the extreme toy around him, the other two go all out.

Since we mentioned the Leon Cupra's aftermarket trip, we should talk about the exact mods on the car. The two-liter turbo has been massaged to 340 hp, with the help of an ABT package.

The connection to the road is now established with the help of a KW Clubsport 3-way adjustable suspension, while the SEAT rides on 235/40 R18 ATS GTR wheels shod in Dunlop Direzza rubber. As for the stopping power, this comes via Brembo brakes using PFC Performance Friction brake pads.

If you plan on pushing your hot hatch past the limit to enter supercar territory while on the 'Ring, make sure you judge your entry speed well - we heard corners tackled while on the roof affect the lap times.
