    You must fel like a prize idiot if you write your own car off, if i were to do it, i dont think i would have the botlte to drive my car right on the edge, through fear of writing it off, its a long walk home from the Nurburgring!

    I have long had a burning desire to do a lap of "The Ring" in my own car, but i wouldnt even dream of doing it at 10/10th's, just the chance to drive arguably the greatest race circuit of all time would be good enough for me!

    I am right in thinking if you write your car off on a track its not insured is it??

    nope, no insurance, and if you damage the track it's something like 500 euros every 10 mtrs to repair the barrier alone....

    As Mark said, no insurance as you are on a 'de-restricted toll road'

    Not only have you got to worry about writing your own car off, you've also got to worry about someone writing your car off for you !!

    There's a lot of accidents where you crash trying to avoid someone elses crash.

    I drove around the ring in a Diesel Vectra and even I got over 125mph on some of the corners.... its a very fast circuit with lots of blind crests and turns.

    One of the Nurburgring corner names translates to 'failure to turn left' and is the scene of many a bad accident !!!

    No crashes, quite, but more by luck than judgement! Interesting seeing what cars were about in 1986. No speed cameras or bumps in those days. Happy times.
