Troy Corser og Nick Heifeld er motorsport-stjerner på henholdsvis 2 og 4 hjul. Troy Corser kjører Superbike-versjonen av S1000RR fra BMW mens Nick Heidfeld kjører BMW Formel1.
Nylig var de begge to på Nurburgring og de fikk anledning til å prøve hverandres leketøy på banen. Hvordan det gikk kan du se på video her.
BMWs Formel1-bil har ikke mindre enn ca 700 Hk som Troy Corser skulle temme på banen. Etter kjøringen uttalte han følgende om bilen;
It was just awesome! The car feels so balanced, the brakes are fantastic, the tyres have unbelievable grip and the steering is very direct but still has a lot of feeling. I cant believe how hard and late you can brake. I know I was braking too early and I really would like to have a day or two with the car to really see what I can do with it.
Nick Heidfeld hadde en mye artigere og letter oppgave (mener vi) ,med å leke seg med Corsers 200hk S100RR. Selv var han og nokså begeistret, og uttalte følgende etter kjøringen:
It was a sensational experience! I already had lots of fun practising on the streetbike in the morning and I had expected the Superbike to be a huge leap over the production version, a bit like series cars and racers, but I was surprised in the end. The difference is huge. On the one hand the Superbike is more aggressive, builds up more grip and has the superior brakes, but on the other hand it is easier to ride because you can control it so well. The handling is very precise. Obviously Im still miles from the limit with the superbike; I would love to have done a lot more laps
