Oh, I think it is! :lol: That is Mr Rooney's Ibeefa too.

PS: Good call on the circuit to play Singing in the Rain over the tannoy too during one of the particularly sharp showers in the morning. I didn't know zee Germanz had a sense of humour, especially the Ring staff. :lol:

Was planning on writing up a trip report, but to be honest it was fairly uneventful with bad rain.


Took along a newbie who hadn't been before, who wanted to check it out before making a trip himself. That was fine as we shared costs.


We stayed at Sliders Guest House as everywhere was fairly booked up, due to the Nurburgring 1000Km on at the GP track. Was ok, but wouldn't make it my first choice. Cheap and cheerful.


Anyway, only 1 lap possible :

Some more pics taken whilst waiting for hours in the carpark:

I was there man..... Got there Friday early afternoon, mananged to get 8 laps in total on the Friday and Saturday morning, shame it was so foggy on the Sunday.

Some real odd style driving from some nut job in a 370z...fast in a straight and slow on the corners and made it dangerous to pass....


First time I took the e46 out just to see how it went, all the worries of over heating brakes......
Car ran fine and dint do anything strange drove home done.
Anyone else going out end of t he month??
I'm going the Friday again to the Sunday pm...

I saw an RS6 on the roads near here over the weekend. I recognised it based on the rate at which it disappeared from the rounabout, heading the other way :shock:
