No the reason why the CLK is faster at the Ring is simple anserwered... the driver was Bernd Schneider... 5 time DTM champion, one of the best if not the best touring race car driver of all time.. a guy who know how to use the potential of the CLK... all other time were driven by car journalists.... with questional race experience..

Because Nordschliefe time for 430 is very weak and does not reveal the potential of the car.

How is the Black slower on every track, yet it whoops it by 10s on the Ring?
