I agree with most of it since there are days when some show up with these trailered cars and "authentic" plates to run the track but are literally full fledged track cars.

The picture in the article was from last year I think where a racing team was running their track car for testing on a touristenfahren day, heavily crashed and the guy then continued on dumping all the fluids on the car and causing a whole bunch of crashes.

Indeed.

The new regs won't affect BMW's 'Ring Taxi, will they? Section 5 says no taxi services allowed next season.

No because the Taxi's that work at the 'ring like BMW and the Aston Martin car are under contract with Nurburgring Automotive Group (NAG).

What will that mean for the car companies who rent out cars though? RSR, Rent 4 Ring, people like them? All their cars are caged and bucket seated. Once you start making exceptions, people throw fits.

Will be interesting to see what they do with it all in the end.

The bucket seats that they are referring to are the ones that completely wrap your head and give you the lateral protection for your head. With those lateral protectors you cannot clear the "blind sides" that a mirror can't do. Regular buckets without the laterals for your head and such like the ones on the GT3's are fine.

Also, remember that some GT3's come fully caged but DON'T come with the lateral support bars by the doors. I don't think that the cars from RSR or R4R come with those lateral door bars either but it would depend on who is interpreting the rules at the gate. Mainly they don't want a car that you have to contort yourself to get in running on the track because they are more considered full fledged track cars
