Thread: Nurburg Motorsport.

  1. #1

    Nurburg Motorsport.

    Say what you want about Ken (and I'll probably say the same... )
    but Manfred Scheer is an utter gentleman, and a gifted mechanic!!

    Last week, a mysterious box arrived from Germany; filled with all kinds of Nurburgring stuff -
    baseball hats, T-shirts, Polo-shirts, Rugby-tops, model cars, calendars, stickers...

    It was sent out-of-the-blue by Manfred: such a kind and thoughtful gesture!

    I've witnessed the man's work, and couldn't recommend him highly enough!!

    * not sure what name he's operating under now since the dissolution of Nurburg Motorsport - it could be Auteg?!

    * this is not a paid endorsement (but he did send me a box full of swag, so there's that)

    A fair assumption Tim.

    I have no vested interest here!
    I just wanted to sing the man's praises, as his reputation may have been somewhat (wrongly!!) tarnished in the eyes of some on here because of his association with a.n.other...

    Agree. Manfred is a gentleman & it was only when involved with a.n.Other it went wrong.

    Send him my regards if you reply back to him, Rory. Not seen him for a good few years now, might try look him up the next time Iím over.

    Will do Simon!
    I'll be emailing him later this evening, I'll pass on your regards to him then.

    Amongst his other virtues, he's also an uncanny Freddie Mercury look-alike..

    Manfred was always helpful. A bit of a bodger at times but he meant well.

    Ken, he just wanted your money.

    With every respect to you Nige, I think the term "bodger" is a bit unfair!
    Any work of his that I experienced was impeccable!!
    Afterall, he was head-mechanic for the Toyota Race & Rally team for many years,
    I don't think that they would suffer bodgers..!

    Dunlop Direzzas. Officially better than aero.

    Steph needed a radiator bracket making and bolting to the slam panel, Manfred welded it on top and bottom so the radiator was impossible to remove without grinding the brackets off, because it was quicker.

    Simon had floating rotors and bells, manfred used nyloc nuts because he didn't have any genuine AP Pinch nuts.

    Nice bloke and very very helpful, I 100% agree, but his work wasn't always the best.
