A little trip to the 'ring (with a few spy photos)

I know this probably is in the wrong section, but let's face it; the e60 forum is kinda dull.

Andreas, a friend of me started to plan a trip to the famous Nürburgring a while a go. Driving his own car. Together with the friends (Mathias and Jens) he ordered ferry tickets and hotel. Me and a other friend (Magne) waited with the whole thing for various reasons (one of the was how to get there). After some convincing of my wife that she didn't need the car for a little week, we had a plan!

Just two days before departure, me and Magne joined as well.

Destination Nürburg!


Onboard the ferry


Goodbye Norway



...and hello Denmark!


Magne looks for windmills and mermaids


Hirtshals, Denmark


For some reason they got handle bars in the telephone boots in Denmark...


Sunset


Getting ready



Nürburg next (Andreas in front of me)








Andreas in a queue outside Hannover




Pit stop


Hmm...


Nice watering can


Andreas' car surrounded by ghosts


Finally arriving Nürburg after almost 12 hours on the road.


Nice room


The heart went away really quick, and the beds was pulled away from each other.

Eary morning


Jaguar F-Type


Toyota-infected Ring Boulevard (som kinda GT86 event was going on)


Picture with no sence


F10 M5 is a nice photo object..


Some more Toyotas, unfortunately you had to be VIP to get in.



RingWerk








Me trying oldschool racing


Mathias og Andreas trying a career in formula one


A jag of some kind.


F10 M5 ring taxi


M6 Gran Coupé (F06)



Aston


Next generation X5 (F15)


Mercedes CL


X5 M


Streets of the nearby town Adenau




Getting ready for Touristenfahrten



Me


...and out we go!





Got around with bot me and my car in one piece.


Had to buy a sticker



...that I ripped of the day after.

Some track photos of various cars








me





Andreas




Mathias in a rental Swift


Andreas again


We headed out to the GP track, and saw these in the parking




€40 later I had a ticket for going around the GP track in 20 minutes. I still don't know why...












Still alive!

The next day, we rented a few Lotus Exiges and went around the area around Nürburgring.

Magne is ready




Had a stop at Adenau, next S-class


M3 (F80)


GT3


Opel(/Vauxhall/Holden/Saturn) Astra cab



Next C-class



Next GL


...or was this the GT3?


Anyway, F10 M5 and F06 M6 Gran Coupé


M135i


F15 X5 again


B-class AMG? Had quad exhaust



Some more Lotus driving!



...but the we saw these


With a well known lady as driver


More Lotus!








Unfortunately, our time was up.


Opel(/Vauxhall/Holden/Saturn) Astra 4-door



Then we took a trip up in the castle.




SLS black series


After a short while, we got invaded by bumblebees



...so we had to escape...


Nice Beetle


GT86


Some more Touristenfahrten





Andreas ready again





Me






Sabine with her roof box


...and the end.


The next day we started to drive home at 07:00 AM, and drove for 23.5 hours until we was home (had to wait a bit for the ferries).

Sorry for the bad english.

I don't know if that's a serious comment, but no. Not even close.

Thanks though!

Awesome post! Enjoyed this one a lot.

The Opel Calibra was too much, just like the Renault Punto. Terrible cars.

Can't view the video here in Germany, but enjoyed seeing the photos again. About to buy German Grand Prix tickets -- very inspiring!
