    Default Nurbergring - Nordschleife 2011

    The trip to the ring on the 17/18th September had been planned by a guy from work, He goes every year and he invited me!
    I had mentioned I was going at the' RS tuning' rolling road day earlier this year. Wazpaz seemed very keen to go with his GSI, so he was invited!
    Being northerners we opted to go on the Hull/ Rotterdam ferry which reduces the driving significantly.
    Anyway I managed to complete 11 laps of the ring! The total mileage for the weekend was 877 and I used 180litres of fuel which is arounf 22 mpg.
    Each lap used about 5 litres of fuel.


    This is a picture of us outside the diner before the rush.

    Very cool and glad you got back safe and enjoyed the visit.

    The picture below shows you at Brunnchen which is where most people are seen having bad accidents. Especially rear wheel drive cars and Astra Nurburgrings

    Good picture because you can see the rise in the track elevation as you go into the corner.

    Because it has two burger vans in the car park

    ... and the car crashes

    EDIT: Actually that viewpoint has a massive gravel car park which was FULL of rusty screws and nails when I went... really bad
