A lap of Legends - Jørund and Sabine

Introduction to the video by Euan:
Only one single thing overtook us on the entire lap. On the exit of Ex-Mühle, Jørund Seim overtook us on one wheel, all beautifully controlled. I watched him in the side mirror as he came up behind us, and he was on one wheel a lot longer than you see on the video. He pulled another wheelie after Bergwerk, but the camera angle and distance don't show this very well. This was his style. There are a few fleeting glimpses of him on the way up Kesselchen. For those that know him, and of his outstanding talent, there is no doubt he was taking it easy by his standards, and he was just out having some fun.
Tragically, just a few hours after this video was taken, Jørund had an accident on the circuit, caused by an earlier oil spill. He died the following morning.
My personal abiding memory of Jørund - the huge grin he would have had on his face as he overtook the Ring Taxi on one wheel.
Jørund - till we meet again.
Note 2: this video was filmed before Nürburgring GmbH banned filming during tourist hours.
Thanks to Simon B. for computerizing the clip at such short notice.
