Non OS, but loving her still. 2.8 seems so fast I haven't seemed to need stabilization yet.
And yes this weather is not doing us any favors!

Still not sure if I'm gonna make it. (Rick, you weren't kidding about Ronnie being hard to get in touch with). I'll know for sure by Thursday and will post if I'm going.

my two greatest pleasures...driving fast and skiing fast...honestly fellas, I think this weekend I'm going to the slopes instead...this weather sucks. At least if I'm up in the mountains, I'm dressed for it and it's expected/anticipated and becomes typical mountain weather...driving a fast car in this stuff is not my cup of Jäger tea...

Looks like the Ring is cleaned free of ice and snow enough for Spring testing to commence.

If there wouldn't be a high chance of snow, rain or both, and most definitely just freaking cold, I'd really like to grab my camera and go there. But this weather ruins my mood totally. I had a fail-pic from Carfriday 2011 published on b2g

I think in a few weeks... we should all try and meet up at the 'Ring.

The 24hour race is on May 19th/20th. I know I will be up there for THAT!!!


http://www.24h-rennen.de/Startseite.1.0.html?&L=1


Maybe we could find a spot to go camp up at the Ring for the 24hr race. ?

In my head its basically the argument of wasting fuel and potentially freezing for like 6hrs or more at i.e. Adenauer Forst, vs. seeing potential awesome, funny fail and whatnot else.

edit: Oh yeah and I do not really intend to lap my car anyway...

edit2: Oh and this is my 2011 fail-shot

I bought a brand new large tent from a co-worker who PCS'd. It's still in the box, never been used.
Too bad I lost the rest of my camping gear in a breakup.

Thomas - do you know IF its allowed to just set up a tent anywhere around the Nürburgring?

Last year when I was walking around the 'Ring during the 24hrs... near Pflanzengarten it looked like people would just set up their tents where ever they wanted. Do you think its allowed to do that? I might just rough it and crash in my car thru the night.

No, setting up your tent on public ground that is not specifically marked as campingground is illegal. But then again I do not know wether this is enforced or not. On private ground the owner has to allow it. For years we (larger group of friends and people I know) have been staying at a campsite not far away from the ring. at like 10ish euro for the night with tent and car, that is quite affordable. We usually stay at the Viktoria Station in Altenahr.

Thanks for the info. Looks like this is the camp site you stay at...

http://www.viktoria-station.de/



I am not sure what I will do. I want to stay at the side of the track during the night time racing. Swadeness and I spent a few hours watching the car zip by Döttinger Höhe section at ~300 kph and that was just unreal! Also to walk around the Karosel area was just awesome at night.
