@Robert, Sound great.. Please not that i am still potentially pulling out if the weather really looks really bad..
I know Peter and you are very wise to do so. Let's hope for a nice and mild autumn then.
Would love to meet up again over there.
Went back to the ring yesterday. Arrived at 17.00 to watch the last action of the VLN 6h race. Met up with Steve (Scuderia) to have diner, so we ordered the "piece of meat on a hot stone" at Pistenklaus. After that a few beers in the Dorint bar where we stumbled upon two norwegians that were in you're scuderia group last May. The one with the black Porsche with red wheels. you probably remember them. Nice guys.
Arrived in Kottenborn around 23.30, bit of sleep, shower at 06.45, breakfast at 7 and after a refill for the 156, went on track around 08.05 at Breidscheid.
5,5 wonderfull laps. Sunny, dry, not to warm yet. And best of all, relatively quiet on track.
The last lap I made a 4 wheel drift coming into Hatzenbach. Oilspill from an ancient Porsche 911. Oil makes braking really tricky.
Ofcourse, track closed for almost two hours. Probably several people didn't make it past Hatzenbach without hitting something.
Did my last lap (just after it reopened) around 12.00 with Steve as a pax. He scored my Pflanzgarten a "1". The rest was OK but could do with some Scuderia fine-tuning (mostly turning in to early, so I loose exit speed). He was very surprised about the 156 though. Want's me to take next years course and he even thinks I could make winnersgroup in it.
In a 156.
And get this, he asked if it's for rent for his own Scuderia course, if I won't enter that is. Of all things......
Went home after that. It was to busy although the weather was great.
156 was perfect. Brakepads DS2500 are almost worn. Michelins work well on the back. Goodyears on the front aren't grippy enough, lots of understeer. I'm thinking of getting 2 PZero Nero's for the front with GY Eagle at the back. Perfect wet and dry weather compromise.
All in all, I had fun for even a short trip.
I'll be back soon.
