Sounds like a great class to take. "The Ring 101".

Yeah, it was indeed s/th like Ring101 with a local theory night the week before organized by one of the enthousiasts.

I have completed about 5 pace-car laps' at mostly very slow speeds, which was great for concentrating on the ideal lines the front car was running. No bikes or overtaking faster cars to get distracted by either these days.
Learned a lot today and with a perfect stay at www.ringpension.de the night before, it was a perfect closure of the season for me.

Car ran great on the track and the 700 km back and to the Ring



Spotted:


Very slow cruising as you can see and what happens if you don't...

Hi Wally

How did the bug perform with the other cars? Looks like there were some nice cars there.

Hey Steve,

It was mostly a wet track, only partially dry and the Ring is very tricky in the wet. Now we also had some leaves on the track, some dry parts mixed with wet parts, so even more tricky..
Performance was on nobody's mind really
Learned a lot about better lines though and that's what I came for.

Greets,
Walter

Wallly, it seems to me you had a lot of fun. Tell us the truth now, did you "play" with any of the gt3's?

I have said it again and will do so now: the Nurburgring is not about your car or the power you have and lack of. It really is about knowing the track or not and driver ability.
An experienced Ringdriver with half my power to weight ratio drives around me so to speak.
That day the track was partially wet and dry-ish and on some parts it rained a bit, so what do you think happens with people that ' play' with other cars to show off their power: yes, they hit the amco and pay thousands for repairs, at best. Worst case is you kill yourself or somebody else or even worse: the guy sitting beside me in the passenger seat and I can explain his wife and kids...
That doesn;t mean I drive there as a pussy. We experienced a rear end break-out and some more tire slippage and I caught both, but you don't play with any other cars there, really.
Not meaning to sound annoyed, but you should really experience it there, then you will have more respect for the track, trust me

I understand what you mean as I also compete in FIA historic rallies as a co-driver(sporting). I am just joking around.

Alright then, sorry I took it so seriously

As 8 cars were more or less seriously damaged that day (even during the very slow pace training laps as you saw on the first video), I take these well meant comments sometimes too seriously as you can see

Looks like it was a great day. Any day you can drive the ring with an instructor and learn the track and your car is a good day.
