2019 Lynk & Co 03 Cyan Concept - Nürburgring Nordschleife - 7:20.143 FWD & 4-Door Record Lap - Thed Björk - Onboard


Cyan Racing breaks two Nürburgring records with Lynk & Co

Cyan Racing, formerly named Polestar, has broken two Nürburgring lap records during development of the Lynk & Co 03 Cyan Concept, making it the fastest four-door car and the fastest front-wheel driven car in the world around the fearsome 21-kilometre Nordschleife circuit.


This also marks the first time that a Chinese manufacturer has claimed a record on the legendary German circuit with a mass production-based car.

The 528-hp Lynk & Co 03 Cyan Concept lapped the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 7 minutes and 20,143 seconds, averaging 170,4 km/h, with Thed Björk, the 2017 World Champion of touring car racing, behind the wheel.

Tentando ser o mais rápido, sendo o mais lento


No minuto final da classificação para a etapa da Áustria da temporada 2013 do World Touring Car Championship (WTCC), alguns pilotos tiraram o pé um pouco antes da entrada dos boxes, esperando que alguém passasse por eles, para, daí, voltar a acelerar, aproveitando o vácuo do piloto da frente.

Acontece que os pilotos que vinham atrás perceberam o truque, e também desaceleraram, formando um comboio que só se desfez a poucos segundos do fim da classificação, quando todos voltaram a acelerar e cruzaram a linha de chegada.

No entanto, a organização da prova não gostou nem um pouco desta atitude, e puniu nada menos que doze pilotos, entre eles, Alex MacDowall, Gabriele Tarquini, James Nash, Norbert Michelisz, Pepe Oriola, Tiago Monteiro, Robert Huff, Tom Chilton, Tom Coronel e Yvan Muller.

O dinamarquês Michel Nykjaer, que não sofreu penalizações, ficou com a pole. Acima, o vídeo com os registros da comunicação de rádio da equipe BMW com Tom Coronel durante o acontecido.
