Fast Lane Daily hits 1,000 episodes and goes to the 'Ring – Click above to watch video after the jump

Fast Lane Daily has been running for some time now. The Next New Networks show first hit the internet back in 2007, and over the course of the last few years have produced quite a bit of content. In fact, the newest episode marks number 1,000 for the FLD crew. To celebrate the occasion, Fast Lane Daily creator Emil Rensing has sent host Derek DeAngelis to Germany so he can drive the Nürburgring. Sounds pretty amazing, until Derek D. realizes his entire trip has a budget of $1,000.

Regardless of the lack of funds, DeAngelis is still able to get to the Green Hell and spend time on the track. It may be behind the wheel of a Citroën C4 but the entire trip clearly has a strong effect on the host. Though the 24-minute clip is longer than the typical Fast Lane Daily segment, we think it's worth it to watch this one all the way through.

Hop the jump
to watch FLD's 1,000th episode.

      i wonder if his rental was insured for driving on the nurburgring.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I'm visiting a friend in northern Italy in April, and the city he's in is only an 8hr drive from Nurburg (you're damn right I looked it up). I've been wondering how feasible a "cheap" trip to the track might be. Looks like this answered my question. I just have to hope that the track is still open... and then not rent a minivan.

      "already got up on us"

      lol

      Germany is everything beyond.
      it outsels USA 3 to 1, hence having a population fo 80+ million and the worlds 2 biggest exporter after china, number 1 in 2009.
      : )

      the c4 Picasso is a very very pretty car, if i would have a need for a van, picasso without doupt.
      i'm not a fan of french cars, but the picasso over any german van.

      I love the danger of life sign at Brunnchen. I take a picture of it every time I'm there. The people wiping out on motorcycle signs around the track are funny too. I mean very serious.

      Lots of factual errors... Fun episode, tho.

      Good 1000th episode. But couldn't he rented at least a small hatchback like the Polo, golf, scirocco, renault clio, or something like that, all he should have done was ask around a little, i saw 4 rental companies next to each other. That said i really enjoyed this episode !.

        Agreed. The C4 Picasso is a great small minivan for a road trip, but one of the worst possible choices for the task at hand. For the same money get a small hatch with a bigger engine. Less weight, more power and a lower center of gravity. Perhaps then he could have had a fair chance against similar machinery and the experience been even more intense.

        He did get the message of how it felt through, though. I really want to do it myself now, only saving up a little more and renting a Porsche, for example. Weekend at the Green Hell.
