November issue features a road trip from the UK to France, Germany and Italy. Features original GT40's and taking the GT Nurburgring. No official timed laps but they guesstimated the GT could do a 7.40. A Viper was used as a camera - chase car. Nice fluffy article. :biggrin

Hopefully someone will scan it in. It's a bit like waving a bottle in front of recovering alcoholic to say the GT was at the ring but they didn't get a time though, isn't it? :lol

sorry, but 7,40, no way !!! :willy you ever done the ring ? I think to do that the Ford needs to swing less with the butt, and steer in a bit sharper... Power there is not everything, I've done it... Ask 1 of 101 for his view, buddy ! :frown

No sir, never been there, it's on my list of tracks to visit. I was just reporting what is in the rag. Wish I had a scanner so I could post the article. :biggrin

Octane Magazine article

Thanks to Bony, here's the Octane magazine fax copy.
I cropped the fax info and converted it to PDF.
Unfortunately one of the pages is illegible (too light). Bony if you resend it to me I'll update the pdf.
