Ohhh, Regensberg. I've seen Munich and Greer, but Regensberg is the one I really want to see.

I didn't know you could get cars with factory race prep. Very posh. Quite different from the $25,000 USD club racers that get passed around from enthusiast to enthusiast here in the U.S.

Great write up

This was an excellent trip. Everything from the dinner and tour of Regensburg (thanks Genero) to the bonus tour or the race car facility. Thank you Pentagon Car Sales for being such a great sponsor of MFlight. Great time indeed.

Another pretty good plant tour to take is the one for the Mercedes ML or GL in Tuscaloosa Al. You don't have to leave the country for that one, and it's pretty similar.

While I have never been to a factory your in the states... On one of my tours to the BMW Munich factory... there was a lady who did tours for BMW NA in SC. She was blown away on how much better the German factory tours were! That's saying a lot!

She also said in the states they would NEVER let people so close to the welding robots because they can throw arching sparks onto the tour guests!
