With the Yaris GRMN, Toyota has brought a model from the racetrack to the street. GRMN stands for Gazoo Racing Masters of Nürburgring. Outside, this strictly limited edition looks much like the regular series production model.
Michael Schumacher's son Mick took a time-out from his Formula 3 championship bid on Friday to test a German Touring Car (DTM) Mercedes. The 19-year-old is making steady progress through the junior ranks.
By driving around the Nürburgring in under 5:20, sportscar driver Timo Bernhard has managed to best the "unbeatable" lap time set by Stefan Bellof in 1983. Bernhard is a German Porsche driver just like his hero Bellof.
There's every chance that this weekend's German Grand Prix could be the last for some time. The Nürburgring fell into financial disarray years ago, while Hockenheim can't afford to make a loss on the race every year.
A new deal means Formula One is scheduled to take place in Germany next year after all. Hockenheim is set to hold two races in two years for the first time since 2005 and 2006.
