t'was a good weekend except for the crashes and closures, i got a new lap record for myself aswell at about 9mins 45ish B) which i am very happy with in my Xsara. shame i didnt get to nick any laps but the track was closed so much i wanted to get my laps in.

nice to have met the guys i did manage to meet, and now my car reads 100,700 odd miles. and i have gained a odd knocking/rubbing noise :( never mind will get that sorted then the offending object falls off :lol:

one other thing was it just me or were the rare as rocking horse poo MK1 M3's EVERYWHERE? they must all live at the 'ring.

i hope all the people that come off are ok and just pride and pocket are damaged.

best pic i have found so far:

I found it quite tough this weekend, the average pace seemed to be very high.

Struggled to get some decent runs in without either A. Being in the way, B. Held up by someone who doesn't like 205's or C. Having to slow for another accident!

Steve - Were you the M3 that was 3 up I let past after the Adenau bridge? Edit sorry just noticed you are CSL NO, saw your car parked up but didn't see you.

The exhaust is too loud, the centre section has cracked a few times and I have had my neighbour weld it up, the baffles are all loose!

When I got into bed last night my head was still ringing!

Glad you had some fun and don't get stressed B)

After meeting you at the Belgian services I looked out for you at the Ring but never manged to see you?

Such a small car park and so many cars

there were a lot of Mk1 M3's - never think of it like that - it is always E30 M3

Martin - black E30 M3 :D

I saw Martin, Kevin, Steve G, Thor, Bren, Andy & a lot of older faces but it was hard to see new faces with the main car park so full of tents, vans & cars which never went anywhere&#33; I saw a red 205 on track but no Xsara. I think we need more Northloop stickers&#33;

Good point I need to sort out a northloop sticker for my car as back over there in 3 weeks&#33;&#33;

RED 106 RALLYE M369 RRR for anyone going&#33;

Matt Garry well have to sort some dates for the trip next year if you dont make it back this year&#33;

Iain said he might come back this year if you do go over but pasager in my car&#33;

SteveG,

I may need some advice in the near future. I am no longer on holiday. The b******s are sending me to Fife to work in July/August. Can you fit me into your suitcase for a trip over?

Had to put those up, I think th**** cracking photos&#33; :D Still cant find any of Bens S14A which is a shame, but Ill keep looking about. Was the Sunday really as bad as my friends make out? Something to do with a motorbiker and an RX7? Sorry to ask about a potentially very sensitive subject, but no-one seems to know what happened.

I was following one of these for about a third of a lap, cause he wouldn&#39;t let me past&#33;&#33;&#33;

Nocturnal

Yeah that sounds about right, he did the same to me last year&#33; Its not that he means to do it, he just gets his competition head on. :D

In that case tell him that it is not a race & the car(s) filling his mirrors be they a 997RS or a MKII Golf are quicker than him so let them pass :thumb:

I tried that, he was quite apologetic afterwards though. I wouldnt mind, I was trying to keep up with a 996 turbo at the time and wasnt doing all that badly&#33; :gay:

Cheers for the pic :thumb:
