Cool ►►►►► **NWS** UK Section : Nurburgring Trip 6th-8th Sept 08 : SIGN UP HERE ◀◀◀◀◀

A trip to the Nurburgring was discussed at UK5 and HERE IT IS!!

If you would like to join me and a few other seasoned friends then you are more than welcome - the more the merrier!!

Can I please STRESS that you do NOT have to DRIVE the Ring. The trip in itself is great fun travelling in convoy, you can have passenger laps with us, you can book a professional lap in the Ring taxi with Sabine Schmitz (book in advance) or you can hire a track car if you don't want to use your own! Also, driving the Ring is NOT a race, you can drive it as fast or as slow as you like, you simply drive within your own limits and comfort zone and give way to faster cars. Its great fun and I GUARANTEE you will love it!!

The proposed weekend:

Leave UK morning Saturday 6th September 2008
Return to UK evening Monday 8th September 2008

Nordschleife opening times:

Saturday 6th Sept : 17:15 - 19:30
Sunday 7th Sept : 08:00 - 19:30
Monday 8th Sept : 13:00 - 19:30

Travel info:

We will be travelling on the EUROTUNNEL and likely to get a 08:00am ish crossing, which gets you to the Hotel near the Ring for 3pm. This can be booked nearer the time. We check in to the hotel first, dump the bags and then head-off to the Ring.

Accommodation:

I am staying at the Goldener Anker Hotel in Adenau (20 mins drive from the Ring). Rooms are comfortable with breakfast at around 95 per night http://www.giffelsgoldeneranker.de/. Email them direct at info@giffelsgoldeneranker.de. I recommend you BOOK NOW like I have.

There are other hotels nearer to the Ring such as the Hotel Am Tiergarten info@am-tiergarten.de but it gets busy.

I like the Goldener Anker because you can unwind from the adrenaline of the Ring and there's a great Jet Wash nearby to keep you car looking clean!



So come on, SIGN UP NOW!!! You will love it I promise!!!

You would be more than welcome to grab a lift. Many do this and change cars along the way to keep things interesting!!

It's also the cost effective option!!

Book it NOW to avoid disappointment - it gets booked up quickly especially Sabine Schmitz...

Would be interested as either:

(a) A passenger (ballast)
(b) Touring 'support' vehicle

Seriously though, anyone up for a passenger let me know.....

Great DervFan! All "passengers" are welcome of course! If you've got balls, go with Carlos... Alternatively, it is fun driving across if you do want to drive as a "support" vehicle...

Yes it is, I already told you that Shamzie... You can always drive down to the Ring on Sunday night from Spa and join us at the Ring on the Monday?

I'd love to come though cars will be a problem,

E30 may well be gone, if not September is MOT time, I know it will need quite a bit spending nor would I trust it to get me to Germany, do a few laps round the 'ring and drive all the way back to Derbyshire ,

MX will probably be in bits (exciting project ahead) or totally standard and lets face it you don't want a Mk. 1 MX5 to wait for, the top speed isn't very high, though the 0-60 isn't too bad,

or

I may have my E90 by then but it is only a 320d and is very, very doubtful I will have the E90 by then!!

About time someone showed some balls and is up for this!

There's 12 cars going so far from the EvoTechnik forum - I went with them last year and it was an awesome trip! They are hardcore and go several times a year - they know the Ring like the back of their hand

I'm not expecting anyone to come from e90post but posted this purely on the off chance someone might want to join us...
