Hockenheim Ring ADAC Masters

What a weekend!

This past Sunday a good friend of mine invited me to come to Hockenheim to see his race team he manages. They run a two car team in the Porsche SuperCup series. They were at Hochenheim for the ADAC Masters race. Basically there were pro and armature drivers there. I must say there was a bunch of really cool cars there!!

I knew when I got to our hotel (in Speyer) that it was going to be a good weekend! There were some really cool 1-er’s there in the parking lot! A really sweet 123d coupe, with all the BMW Performance goodies. And a cool AW 130i e87 four door hatch. Plus all sorts of fast cars scattered about. I had the only 135i.

When we got to Hockenheim Ring (just a few klicks away) it got even better! Racing and race tracks are in my blood… and there is just something that feels so dam right about being at a motorsports event!

My friend runs the Hermes race team. They have two 911 race cars. A new brand new 997 Cup car (#35) and an older 997 (#36). Both cars are top in class cars. In fact the brand new car WON the GT3 class. It was really cool sitting in the race truck and watching the track coverage live on TV. But most of the time I was walking around in FULL DROOL mode. There were some really cool cars running around! Plus since I was with the race team, I had pit credentials pass. So I could go anywhere I wanted too!

There was all sorts of race cars there at the Ring. Mini cup cars, Fiat 500 cup cars (220 PS!), DTC and Touring cars, Formula 3000 (one step down from F1 cars), GT2 and GT3 cars, and a few others classes I am probably forgetting about right now!

Well… here are some of my pics. I tried to concentrate on BMW theme besides all the other cool cars there that day!

IF you would like to see more of my photos… all 224 of them! You can see more here --->

I really wanted to go to this, was invited to it and everything, but was stuck at work. I was lucky to get Le Mans off. Pics look great, what was that orange rhino's car in the garage???

That car is a Ascari KZ1R GT3. it won!

I really did not plan on going to this race. But things just sort of fell into place for me! The next race for the ADAC Master's is in NL in Assen.

My friend's team will be in Lausitzring this weekend though. That is the only banked Nascar style track in europe, other than one in the UK. VW will sponser this race. Its near one thier factories in Eastern Germany. I think near Dresden.

Btw... there is this really HUGE car/plane/boat show down at Lake Konstance (BodenSee) this weekend. I think I will go there on Sunday.
