Hey, if I buy a 25 lap 'ring card for 499 euros, that would work out to 20 euros per lap versus 26 euros a lap at current prices...so basically you pay for 3 laps and get the fourth free.....you guys interested in going in on this card?

Exclamation global prices of steel fell sharply after it was announced...

In other news... global prices of steel fell sharply this morning after it was announced that the Nürburgring would not open for "Kar Freitag".


Looks like its a good thing no 1Addicts went to the 'Ring today!

Only a dipshit would do something like that in a 2.5L single turbo Skyline. Reason I say it's a 2.5L, the one with the TT-RB26 is AWD. He was probably trying to drift in the wet since he can't do it on a dry surface.

That dude fails!

I'll need 2 meets to do 5 laps. I never do more than 3 in one day, unless we managed to have the entire 'Ring to ourselves (yeah, right).

Arrow CDU are against the sale of the Nordschleife and GP track...

Seen on FB's Bridge To Gantry page...

More good news from the Eifel. The CDU are against the sale of the Nordschleife and GP track in the Nürburgring fire-sale. It's the Red-Green lefties that are in power locally, but the CDU is in power nationally... step by step the Nürburgring might actually be saved(!).

Arrow Giant penis...

Posted on Bridge to Gantry's website...


Giant penis closes Nürburgring Nordschleife

Name:  Ring graffiti.jpg
Views: 145
Size:  92.1 KB


Typical isn't it? The first day of good weather and the track is closed for half of the day while a giant, white, graffiti penis is cleaned off the track...
In the Easter 2013 update I did satirise the issue a little bit. But now it's getting serious again. Humph.

It really does re-open the debate: is the graffiti good for the Nürburgring?

What do you think?

You know the area, you won't get an accurate forecast till 1 or 2 days out.
If it's a monsoon I'll skip, otherwise I plan on going.

Weather looks cold and wet, probably not going to make it Sunday.

Anyone hear anything about video camera regs this season? B2G reported that there were rumors that they were going to start allowing cameras again but I've read nothing else so far...


EDIT: I sent a message to B2G asking the same question. The reply was "discrete, internally mounted cameras" are being allowed but it's still officially verboten. YMMV

Nurburgring GMBH is providing a "service" where you can rent one of their GoPro's or use your own for a sd card review "fee" to make sure that you haven't recorded an accident or incident or any unsafe driving events. It's a 10-15 euro "fee" that they charge for this "service".
