Nurburgring this weekend? 23rd Feb...

I'm heading over to the continent in the 156 this weekend, meeting up with my brother, so we're hitting the Nurburgring yet again on Saturday. If anyone's around... I'll be in the Green rocket!!!! Don't be shy.

PS the forecast is excellent

Re: Nurburgring this weekend? 23rd Feb...

Got back to the UK early afternoon - was awesome! Photos & a detailed breakdown to follow (prob. Monday night) but the 156 did me very proud indeed

Dutch 75 boys were there, along with a Dutch 156 GTA (with redecorated RHS )... track was really quiet, almost no bikes, a couple of GT3's, Corvette's, RX8, new (E92?) M3... track was slippy in some shaded places, but all in all good.

145mph out of the JTD on the Autobahn on the way home - and there was more coming (despite yet another split boost hose - one of the downfalls of running 1.9 Bar.... )

Great weekend

To bad I just read this. I was there in my 156 (GTA Frontspoiler, but 3.0V6 in real life). Damage RHS is from last May in Hatzenbach. Not from this weekend.....

Shame we didn't meet. Next time perhaps....

PS. Is this you?

Yup, that's me alright, giving a mighty thumbs up to the camera! My 156 was very dirty but pretty fast!

I parked in the "ticket" car park, I noticed you & all the 75's in the "Ringtaxi" car park - probably why we didn't meet. Next time tho'

I have some pictures of your car - will upload later!

It should be. 2.4JTD got plenty of "OEMPH" to go up those hills.

Look forward to meeting you next time. (and the pictures ofcourse)
