We'll make a weather call Sat evening after seeing what it looks like...

20% chance of precipitation isn't a bad gamble and 48 degrees for a high means the cars will run cooler...as long as the tires are warm we should be ok... obviously don't want to drive with snow flurries or wet concrete at 48 degrees.

Let's make a weather call Sat evening and I'll pm all concerned.

Be careful with the cold weather up at the 'ring. It can get pretty slippery if you're not careful.

Wish I could roll with you guys

Current weather forecast for the Nurburgring according to Accuweather.com


http://www.accuweather.com/en-us/de/.../details4.aspx


I dont care about the weather that much, would be nice to just cruise the course a few more times. What sucks is that there probably wont be any of the track photographers out taking pictures of cars that go by.

I have two friends that would love to go. Both are N55 one is DCT. However they are also both in the Break-in. Don't worry looks like we'll have enough 1er by the summer to fill up the ring.

Tell them to come anyway, they dont need to thrash their cars on the track to enjoy it.

Ok Rick. Be sure to PM or post IF you guys decided to cancel. But I am looking forward to going. We could always just go to the Museum and Motor Arcade there. I guess they are open on Sundays right>? I might be bring Oli (Specter88) with me too.
