Aye I haven't seen this one at the nurburg ring, if that's spelt correctly.

It’s ok, it’s a new prog :D

“In a brand new challenge, Guy Martin has completely remodelled his beloved transit van to take on one of motorsports’ greatest circuits. Three years ago, Guy crashed his van on the way to work and wrote it off. He was gutted but, rather than sending it to the breaker’s yard, rebuilt his van as a blisteringly fast racing machine, one which reached speeds of 165mph across the Nevada desert. Now Guy wants to break the van lap record at the Nürburgring in Germany – the most demanding and dangerous racing track in the world. It requires a total rebuild of the van, a job Guy undertakes in his shed, taking over his life for five months. He then has to learn the 100-plus corners of the Nürburgring’s 12.9 miles and hope that everything goes according to plan during the single hour he’s been allowed to use the legendary circuit. It’s a massive undertaking which repeatedly pushes Guy and his van to the limit. And, as the challenge approaches its climax, all threatens to end in disaster.”

Well I was a wee bit disappointed with it :( not the van, nor the record but I was disappointed that they hardly shown any of the van build.
