I'm in Cologne in a few weeks and my wife suggested it as a day out/treat for me.
There's a few problems though:
a) It's a 4 hour drive from Cologne
b) I'm scared I'll crash
c) I'm scared that someone will crash into me
d) I'll kick myself if I don't do it
Do any of you folks have any...
hey all.... we recently bought our Brera privately (risky I know!) as a replacement for my partners Abarth (which is for sale on e-bay!) , and every year we take a road trip with our friends to Germany and the Nurburgring.... we usually go in my octavia vRS, which has many mods to make it a...
Morning all. Would anyone be up for a Nurburgring trip in October? I'm thinking the weekend of the 7th. Have done a couple of trips with Ned, Jimbo, Lawrence, Brett, Joss (ahem) et al, and I thought I'd put the feelers out. Drive out sat 7th for the evening session. Full day Sunday, drive home...
Finally managed to get a start on the 147 now after a busy Christmas period! Me and 2 friends have brought an old 147, with the intentions of kitting it out to take to the ring. We've got 2 vectra's and a saab all running the cdti engine between us, but wanted something smaller running the same...
A few pics from our jolly to the Nurburgring at the weekend.

Joss and I have got out heads together and we have come up with the following dates
3 4 5 6 October
Our plan is this is going to be an all welcome trip not just GTA's, the more the merrier :D
I will arrange a group discount for the tunnel crossing but will need names and numbers and a £25...
now here's a interesting thing:
same corner at the Nurburgring, yet there seems to be no consistency as to why some cars fall off the track. OK, we can allow for some variables like car type/suspension set-up/quality of tyres/driving skills/weather... but if four cars enter the corner at the...
Great new video of journalist lapping the Nordschleife in 8.18. on a slightly damp track and with traffic. I am afraid that I didn't check to see if he got into sixth!

So this weekend I set off on what now seems to have become an annual excursion to the petrol head Mecca that is the Nordschleife...... other wise known as The Ring :)
6pm Friday struck, working week now finished and the trip began with myself and friends heading down in my RS, a DC5 and E39 M5...
Freshly enthused from my recent trip to Italy I would like to put together a trip to the Nurburgring
I can get a discount on the Eurotunnel for a group booking but like always the earlier I can sort the dates out the better the price will be
I have been looking at the dates
I've just booked to go back again in August for some public days and I'm considering renting this time rather than risking the RS (must be getting old ).
Has anyone rented before and got any feedback on the cars. Trying to figure out whether its worth upgrading from the stage 2 swifts to the...
