Put your willy away Tony. :rolleyes:

Where is the best place en route to the 'ring to go for a vmax run?

Coming up to the French border in the Golf R32 @ 160 indicated wasn't such a good idea a few years back. :blink:

20 mpg at 192 mph!! got to love the porsche engine.

the 599 gtb would be doing like 2 mpg and an M5 gallons to the mile at that speed. :lol:

I seem to remember that I averaged 23mpg on that journey - incredible considering the performance. The 997 Turbo I had for a week was similar.

Did you see Top Gear where apparently the Fezza 599 did 1.7mpg on track?!! :lol:


Put your willy away Tony.
Well it's not like I have posted that pic up here at any opportunity :whistle: ;) :lol:

You have lost 'report points' for not holding the camera steady :loser: ;)

Tonys picture B) shows all the temp gauges sitting bang in the middle of where they should be - curse that German engineering :whistle:

Te bit next to the train line - it's straight for about four miles.

HOWEVER - after I showed Monkey that photo he said "you're brave - they'll crush your car if caught over 150mph/250kph"








.... and it was a press car :whistle: :wave:

Here you go Mr Porsche - a lovely new paperweight :shame: :smack:

Which road is that on T?

Between Brussels and Liege.

I wouldn't, its not worth the risk. Best off going out and finding the Autobahn north of the Rohdlbahn (sp) Can't remember its number.

I have never heard of that...

Derestricted is derestricted. The recommended speed is 130kmh, and if you crash and its proven that your speed was above this then your insurance is invalidated. But i have never heard of crushing your car if you go over 250kmh

(I have overtaken quite a lot of police at high speed and had no problems, infact one time after doing so I had to slow for a 120kmh zone and the Diesel Polizei Mercedes Wagon I had overtaken at warp speed a km or two back rather breathlessly came blasting up next to me. The two polizei sat in the front looked over, then the passenger gave me a thumbs up and they accelerated away in a cloud of diesel smoke)

best,
adam

Ha! missed that, well then I would say getting your car crushed for doing 250kmh would be getting off lightly there. They are really rabidly strict.

Roads are damn straight though, shame about the surface!

best,
a

edited to add: Tony if this is allegedly true, then kudos, serious serious kudos... :veryhappy:

I lost my licence for two weeks and was fined 500 quid for doing 101 mph in belgium god knows what they do after that, But I'd hazard a guess it involves biting a pillow

Adam, I know you've done some big numbers in the Porsches, where "legally" en route or around the 'ring could I go for a vmax run.. ;)

Well, I have heard that the A1 autobahn is a good un, though I dont have any experience of it (yet). Though I am here at the ring all the time the call of the autobahn isnt so strong!

Nurburg is betwee the A1 and the A61:

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geoc...4,0.873413&z=11 (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=koln,+germany&ie=UTF8&ll=50.529579,6.91658&spn=0.297684,0.873413&z=11)

The A61 is utter crap, restricted until Koln and then after that complete road work chaos.

A48 is really brilliant. You can join that by heading for kelberg (south of nurburg). Its not perfect for ultra high speeds, but its derestricted and not that busy.

But if you want the best roads for Autobahn blasting you have to head way south to Bavaria where you can do this every night:

Gary, Adam, you can forget the A1 for this year, it's full of bloody roadworks, the A 48 is your best bet :thumb:

Damn, the A1 is bad too?

Oh well...thanks for the heads up :)

It was straight and clear for miles, but I certainly won't be doing it again.
I am slightly annoyed I didn't go for the full 200mph (indicated or otherwise) so I might have another crack at it if I have a suitable car - but this time in Germany on a deresticted road.

It might strain my relationship with Monkey if I had a press car crushed :smack:

Karl's Thursday Top Tip :karl:

Go to http://www.adac.de/Verkehr/Verkehrsmeldung...ion=2%5FVerkehr (http://www.adac.de/Verkehr/Verkehrsmeldungen/default.asp?id=375&location=2%5FVerkehr)

Type in the motorway number (ie. A1), click the box that says "Baustellen", press return, and it will give you all the roadworks on that particular motorway, hover the mouse arrow thing over any that are of interest, like between Euskirchen and Bonn, and it will show you when the work is scheduled to finish :thumb:

*This tip has been brought to you courtesy of the efficient Germans, don't ya just love em?* :veryhappy:
