Many years in the planning, many months in the making.
We had been touting the idea of this project around for a long time and looked for someone who was going to be brave enough to make the film that real petrolheads want to see - unedited raw driving on the worlds most dangerous racing circuit, a place we know so well, the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
Vaughn Gittin Jr. was the perfect driver, with great vision and passion for the idea (something he'd wanted to do for a long time) and with his brand RTR, and with support from Forza and Ford, to name a few, the idea turned to reality.
Despite the first attempt being cancelled due to adverse conditions we came back and with our friends at Race Service managed to pull it all off.
There are several edits of this film, and Vaughn let us produce the pure unfiltered long edit that we had hoped to make. This really was a once in a lifetime opportunity, and something we don't think will be repeated again, unless we get to it.
