Interesting. I wonder which layout they clocked under seven minutes. I looked up the lap times on Wikipedia and there is a whole lot of variation in timing. Make the Nordschleife loop alone under 6:11 and then we could talk about shattering the ultimate record. I believe this is the current one held by Stefan Bellof and his Porsche 956.
Got it, BTG was one of the more unusual things I learnt about timing on the Ring. However, it’s not the pit straight that’s involved, but the back straight on the actual Nordschleife (you might wanted to refer to that in which case we just misunderstood each other a bit). Thanks for the info. :)
