Sure, the two slabs of Germany might be different, as we're looking at a twin-turbo super-sedan and a naturally aspirated mid-engined special. However, we have to point out that they're pretty evenly matched, which makes the hunt engaging.
The Porsche serves as the camera car for this chase, with this bringing the advantage of a splendid soundtrack. Alas, the filming setup isn't ideal, as you'll notice in the clip.
Both the Bimmer and the Zuffenhausen machine are driven at a respectable pace and, since this is a Touristenfahrten (Tourist Days) experience, the main straight of the track is missing.
The lap we're discussing involved a bit of traffic, with others cars getting in the way or trying to join the chase at times.
Speaking of Ring Taxis, we'll remind you that the times when BMWs were the only choice are now behind us. In fact, if you decided to visit the infamous German track and enjoy such an experience, the choice of cabbies is rather generous, with this involving machines like the Jaguar F-Type R and even the Lamborghini Huracan Performante (you know the Raging Bull that used to hold the production car Ring record thanks to a 6:52 lap).
And we'll remind you of the time when the Performante Ring Taxi was hunted down by a Ring Wolf behind the wheel of a track-prepped Corvette Z06.
