I will do the training in a M3 Really curious how the car will compare to my 335. I was heavily impressed with the M3 when I drove it on Mugello last year!
Reason I do this is insurance. The Swiss insurance is real tricky, so I decided not to drive hard anymore on the Ring with my own car. Maybe a few laps for fun, but no BTG under 08:00

People that have already driven there told me it's a bit strange because the two circuits are completely different and usually also make different setups necessary. The Grand Prix circuit is also much much harder on the brakes than the Nordschleife. But maybe we could meet up then?
I am currently checking what to do exactly. I think I will arrive with my own car on Tuesday afternoon, also to drive a few "long" laps. But as the rest of the group (7 others) arrive somewhere in the afternoon as well I will check what the planing for the evening is. There is a diner and a theory session planned, no idea about the exact timing though.
