Re: Got it!
Get a SatNav with traffic updates, as the Motorways are clogged, these days.
Stick to the speed limit, if you get caught it's on-the-spot fines and if you can't pay, they might keep the car as guarantee until you pay.
Don't break the two-second-rule, they are currently positively enforcing it.
Use the motorway for long-distance only and go for smaller roads instead. Won't let you cover the distance quickly, but might be a better driving and more fun, as motorways are infested with HGVs.
In the Alps... my favourite is the Sella round. Don't do it on a weekend and it might be a little late in the year.
Nurburgring... even after lotsa laps there, it still scares the **** out of me. Take care. You will have buses, motorbikes and whatever on your track. If you finally think, you've got it - you don't. That's the most dangerous time. If you think you've got it - do it again, slowly and see if you really got it. Most of the time, you dont.
Trust me, I've totalled a race car during a long-distance race. It was my 70'ish lap that year and 200'ish in total and I still got it wrong.
So much for the ring...
