Nurburgring Trip!

Well we are here have been fro a few days... staying at the Hotel An Der Nordschleife, you know this one...

If you ever have to stay here... Eddy will take good care of you!

I guess today is a VLN Race day untill 1800 so we have been out taking lots of pictures and video and wandering around the pits...

Tomorrow i will be renting a VW Scirocco from the www.rent-racecar.de folks 6 laps with an instructor... should be a blast! Talk to Heide if you would like to make arangments

However one hitch... No red... STILL! 3 weeks with BMW and they still havent fixed whatever the problem is... we have been reduced to renting a car... which was a Nissan Micra at first but coming out of the Swiss Alps the driverside wheels Skirt decided to attack the wheel and then hit the car behind me... so we got upgraded in Bologina to a Nissan Qashqui (Rogue fro the americans) Its a Diesel, so its peppy! but garbage... and was only able to top it out at 170kph... SLOW... my 1994 Merc is faster! anyway more soon... and pictures!
