While the Nurburgring's management has moved to ban all future lap record attempts from carmakers, the famous track will no doubt continue to play host to various forms of testing, because of its unique characteristics.
In this video, we see a blue and orange example of the recently revealed Aston Martin GT12 being driven rather aggressively around the circuit. An official flying lap will not be part of the test because of the new regulations and speed limits.
But check out this hot Aston really getting the beans - the V12 car's right on the edge. You can even spot a botched gear change if you listen closely (and you've always wanted to be the guy behind the wheel...), the driver is in too low a gear coming out of one of the corners.
