Tanner Foust Takes On Nurburgring in a Ford Raptor

Most cars seen taking laps on the Nurburgring are either sportscars or racing cars. That doesn't mean you can't tackle the famous track in a different type of vehicle, but who would have thought that Tanner Foust himself will want to "race" and off-roader at the 'Ring.

Yes folks, professional racing driver and television host Tanner Foust took the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor out for a fast stroll a the Nurburgring, every company's favorite test and record-setting track.

Not exactly a sportscar but undoubtedly a high-performance vehicle in its segment, the Raptor got to run around the world-famous track for two simple reasons: Foust had a free day and "nobody's done it before". So it's all about fun. Probably great loads of fun for the people around the track, just look at that Raptor jumping and bouncing off the curves.

Well, in case you're waiting for some lap times you'll be very disappointed. Porsche and Subaru have nothing to worry about, as Foust was happy enough to skid left and right while taking curves at high speeds (for a pickup). We're just sorry that Ford didn't post a longer video of this.
