Motorsport pron: Learning the Nürburgring in a Porsche 911 (XCAR)

Our friends from XCAR take us on a spin that many of us would love to take advantage of, if you haven't already, which is a trip around the ring with an instructor teaching you along the way. Better yet, he takes this challenge on with the 991-chassis 911 Carrera S. What's your personal best time around the Ring'? Did you get advice from the legendary Walter Röhrl before setting that time?
