Walter Röhrl Pörsche: Nurburgring Oldtimer DVD

Karsten Arndt emails about his latest Gelee-Deluxe DVD, featuring Walter Röhrl lapping a very wet 2011 Nürburgring Oldtimer GP in a Porsche 911S.

I’ve got Karsten’s first DVD, where Walter runs the Koln-Ahrweiler Rally of 2004 in a Porsche 911 ST. That’s a good one, despite some very high viewing angles making it difficult to see that far ahead of Walter’s car. Unlike some rally films, the action is well conveyed via digital video on a decent-sized TV.

I mentioned my minor irritation on the first DVD to Karsten, and asked him how the new one compared? “The quality is much better, I think,” he replied. “A few more camera positions, more outside shots and the interview on the second DVD with the commentary of Walter himself.”

Here’s a clip of Walter from the DVD. Lightweight Porsche body parts specialist, EB Motorsport, also competed at the Nurburgring on the same weekend and came away with a decent result, despite sliding off in their 911 ST. I’ll dig out some video of that.
