This Gorgeous Short Film Shows What It's Like to Race an Awesome Aston Martin V12 Vantage Round the Nürburgring 24-Hour Race

It's unlikely you'll ever get the chance to race around the Nürburgring in any sort of Aston, let alone an incredibly powerful V12 Vantage GT3, but fear not -- you can live vicariously through these two chaps, who documented all their prep, practice and racing in this gorgeously-shot short film.

It's amazing how much preparation is needed for something like this, and how a simple tyre blowout can sink you right down the pecking order. All that time, money and effort, lost by a piece of rubber. Still, at least they didn't place last, just 101st out of 111 finishers. Looks like great fun though. Time to win the lottery so I can have a go. [Vimeo via Jalopnik]
