Greetings from Nürburgring...

Some recent pics (Dec) of the 'Ring taken from STR fb page. I thought we could use a little 'Ring inspiration!

My car would be too loaded down with wine to drive on the ring!

But yeah, sounds great.

If I have a 4 day that weekend im gonna try to make it to SPA on Friday, but if not then ill leave out early Saturday morning and meet up with you all somewhere along the way. I had already figured on going to the ring Saturday and staying overnight and going back Sunday, so if we do a drive on Saturday and the ring on Sunday it will still work out.

Luxembourg is 1.5 hours from SPA, and the ring is almost 2 hours from there.

Seems like there is quite a few places pretty close to SPA that would make for a good day trip enroute to the ring.

Ohhh, speaking of beer in Belgium, I meant to post this before but here is a post from a friend of mine that recently went there.

http://kcsr.org/showthread.php?t=138017

^ thread has a lot more pictures, but here is my favorite post.




Quote:
****** FINAL UPDATE ********

On my last day in Brugge I decided to go try to track down some of the chalices that go with each of the Trappists beers. I went hunting down some of the narrow, winding backstreets and ended up at a little shop that specialized in Belgian beers.

As you can see, they have a couple beers squeezed into the tiny little shop:





In addition to the huge collection of Belgian beers they also had a few of the chalice, so I picked up one from Wetvleteren, Westmalle, and Rochefort.

AND, they also had the one Trappist beer I had not tried yet, the Stift Engelszell. The Stift is brewed at a Monastery in Austria, and is brewed in VERY small numbers. From what I have found online they brew about 1/3 of the volume that Westvletern does (which is hard to even imagine given how difficult Westvleteren is to get). This was the only place I have seen this beer on my trip and it was the only one I was still missing. So of course I bought one.

The biggest issue get getting all of my treasures home to Dublin.......

I wrapped everything in bubble wrap (each beer was wrapped individually, and then placed back into the box, which was then wrapped with 8 layers of bubble wrap, and then wrapped/tuck in clothes in the suitcasses......

This is what it looked like when I got home:



No immediate signed of breakage, no rattling shards of glass, no dripping liquid....


And once everything was unwrapped......











And then inside of the boxes:



So after all, I was able to make it back home with all 19 beers and 3 chalices intact. And I got to try all 8 of the Trappist beers. I'm going to mark this one in the win column.

There is something even more serious. If anyone here has any laps on their "Ringcards", you might want to start making some calls. The company that controls the ringcards just went under and closed.

Copied from the STR Facebook page with link to Mike's blog.

The Ringcard company "CST" has been liquidated January 17th. http://mikefrison.com/1954 Don't ask me what that means for the remaining credit on your cards though, the insolvency administration is pretty silent in terms of communication.
Can we pay cash again in the future or still forced to use the card? Another good question.
I personally can't be bothered: I survived the last 5 years easily without buying a single Ringcard.
