Anyone going to Bitburg on the 13-15th?

Bitburg's 1/4 mile and HPDE tracks open back up on May 13-15th. I SHOULD be there on the 14th bright and early to get some runs in. Last year the track was prepped pretty decently and there was only about a 20 minute wait between runs which isn't too bad all in all. Entry fee for the day is about 15-20 euros which gets you as many runs as you can get in and you must have a helmet. If you dont have a helmet you can rent one of theirs for the day for 25 euros and they will give you 20 euros back when you return it at the end of the day. Your car will have to pass a safety inspection prior (tires,glass, leaks.....)to registering for racing.

Bitburg brings in some pretty decent cars. Most of them run in the 12-14.00 second range which is respectable IMHO for an old plane runway.

Heres a video of me(Silver C6 Corvette with trashed RFT's) and a SRT4(full slicks and running 20psi) from last season.


www.1on1-motorsports.de for more info.

Nick...how would your 135 stack up against this SRT4?

Maybe we could do this Sat until 1600 or so...then head up to the 'ring, spend the night with the group...then do the 'ring Sun and head home......action-packed weekend..

your thoughts?

Yea Elsabora told me a few weeks ago that this was happening the same weekend as the ring meet. Like Elsa said above, Bitburg is only about a 30-45 minute drive from the ring and I think it would be a great addition to the ring meet.

To be honest, I think my 1er right now would destroy that SRT. My Z51 C6 was a manual and had longtube headers and a ram air intake. Right now I would put money on my car against my old vette. When I ran that SRT in my vette, my factory run flats were pretty much bald and traction was a huge issue that day. With a fresh set of tires or DR's on my vette it was easily a low 12 second C6. With my current mods on my 1er, im really shooting for a 12.0X as long as I dont get any shift bog during my runs.

I would love to head to the following day but the 14th is the only day I have off as of right now.

Biz,

Hockenheim GP course has a 1/4 mile track but they open it for public drag races very rarely since they make their cash on the Touristenfahren days where they have either the GP course or smaller course layout open.

If you go to the Hockenheim website they should have some more info on it.

Hockenheim is open for 1/4 mile this summer for only 2 days(August 6-7th) and I WILL be taking leave so I will not miss it. They prep that track better than any other track in Germany but it is a tad more exspensive compared to the other tracks.

The only other tracks for 1/4 mile besides bitburg and hockenheim is German race wars and that track really sucks compared to the other two. Most people go to race wars for the after party rather than the racing.

60 ft's at Hockenheim are on par with most state side tracks and Bitburg is not as good but pretty close. As for Racewars, ive seen vipers runs high 13's. People just cant hook up off the line there. Their prep is shitty IMO.

I have to see if I can do the 14th. The wife already made plans for that day since I told her I would be at the 'ring on sunday.

Time to see what I can do.........and I still have to find time to install my DP's....

Nick enquiring minds want to know what other little mods that you have on your 1er that your fellow germany 1 addicts are not aware of. Please do tell

I went...only three 1Addicts were there

KC Skyrider, myself and another guy who's screen name I didn't remember.

Unfortunately they had mech issues so left as I entered.

Got there late so only ran twice, best time was 14.125 @ 101.35 with a bad launch but I still beat my guy so was happy. Only second time I've ever drag strip raced and the car is totally stock so I'm happy for today.

Photos and videos as I get them downloaded.
