This week on evo – M3 vs C63, McLaren ride, Forza and more

A look at the most exciting things from the world of evo this week

Since then though, it’s been non-stop – whether riding passenger in the latest McLaren road car or comparing two powerhouse super-saloons.

The most controversial news this week is that the Nurburgring has banned the timing of laps. It hasn’t, of course – that would make racing impossible – but the rules it has implemented have made things very difficult. Read about this, and more, by clicking on the links below.
