...and you can't blame the driver. Dale Lomas is a professional race car driver who lives at the Nurburgring. His day job is as a Race Taxi driver for BMW at the Nurburgring. He also runs the "Bridge To Gantry" website (the unofficial web site of the Nurburgring), coaches driver and riders up to and including the professional level, and is a moto-journalist for numerous car and motorcycle publications.

Dale's online tutorials were very helpful to us as we learned the Nurburgring Nordschleife, prior to us going there and actually driving it at triple-digit speeds in my wife's new BMW Track Pack car. Thanks in part to Dale, we were fortunate enough to be able to bring her car home without incident.
