I don't know where you find these or find the time to find these. But thanks again.

My son was asking (as we watched the video) if you knew what the mod's were to both bike and car?

That is AWESOME! As for the Z4, it was featured in European Car a few months ago. IT is a Z4 with an E39 M5 engine shoehorned into it. The engine was massaged by Schnitzer and it its output is well above stock. I forgot the exact HP figures, but I believe its over 450hp. What a race!

Actually Rennie I dont know, but I assume that the K1200R is a PoweCuP Modified R, with appr. 172 bhp....or a PowerCup R, boosted even more by The Tuning Company ACSchnitzer..
..have you ever driven the Nurburgring.. its just crasy....its called the Green Hell or as in German.. Die Grune Hoelle.. you should try it once if you dont already have..

OUTSTANDING! That was fantastic!

The Z4 driver looked completely relaxed, the KR rider completly focused. Great stuff.

It would be great seeing how these films are made. Even better being part of the film crew.

Thanks x2

Unfortunately we passed the "Ring" (right between the car parks and the actual track) on route to the Rhine in September, but we were running a bit late and had to make our destination before nightfall... so we never managed to stop a have a lap. However I have a good number of friends who have spent time there, so I must make time in future.

Cool video! I suspect, however, that while the speed was real, the 'competition' was not. How likely would it be that two such different vehicles would do 16 miles (I think that's how long the Nordschleife circuit is?) flat-out and end about fifty yards from each other? Naaaahhhh ...

... Far more lilely that AC Scnitzer wanted both in-shot at all times to make the video something special. Full marks on that score!!

Final question: What's a 'Beaster' K12R? I'm guessing one of the sponsored bikes in the Powercup series?

Man, that's a sexy looking piece of kit! Thanks - tried googling it without success earlier.
