    Harsh news man, I really hope you can get it done! Germany is about the right distance to run it in though so there's an up side!

    Sounds good to me dude, you can go out ahead of me and I'll play catch up :P

    Just bought 12 laps for £175 from a mate who's just made friends with the armco at Miss-hit-miss and decided to come home early

    Nice deal with the laps mate. I'll probably only do 8ish.

    If I follow you mate there's no way i'll be able to keep up. I'm on GT5 every night at the moment. I'll soon be able to run through a lap in my head

    Youd be surprised I think mate, it's SO much easier to go fast when you're following another car.

    That, and your S3 MUST be way quicker in a straight line. The track car seems to have lost it's edge a bit. probably due to the 206k on the engine, and the cracks in the turbo you can read a paper through!

    I know all about turbo cracks mate!

    I might be faster in a straight line but you'll kill my cars fat ass in the bends.

    Exackery!


    So many people get stickered up before they go, without understanding the rules!

    No stickers allowed until YOU have done a lap in the car. If you buy a car with a sticker on, you need to remove it until YOU've done a lap.

    If you get a new car, you can't put a sticker on it until the new car has done a lap :P

    them's the rules. Don't want to see any first timers with Ring stickers in our trip!

    Good man. we must honour the code

    What annoys me even more than ring stickers when people havn't earned them, is those bloody 'never been' *******s.

    You'll come up behind a car in traffic, and think ''oh, a like minded person'' Only to find its some scene tit who hasn't got a clue.

    I also bet that over 80% of the ring stickers you see on cars are from eBay and not the official ring stickers from the place itself. Have you seen the "M25 Ring" stickers too??? Tits!

    Looking good man. I'm looking forward to a white nuvkle ride in this too

    The stickers will be internal and the same size as a business card. I'm also going to get the old ones from 2008 re-printed as mine got binned when I had a new windsreen fitted.

    As gay as this sounds, I'm REALLY looking forward to taking some of you guys around for a lap too!

    You can build the fastest thing on the planet, but without anyone to share it with, you're just a sad and lonely man!

    Half the fun for me, is going out for laps with other people, as pax or driver, then recounting the tales over an ample serving of bit burger that evening in the bar!

    It's the whole atmosphere of the place that just makes it magical, and until you've been there, you'll never understand just how epic the place really is!

    if youve got another car, just bring that and come for the fun?

    i recently went for the first time as apassenger, and still had an amazing time!

    Oh, and just to clarify my quote above:

    I'm not suggesting for a second that my A3 is the fastest thing on the planet, that was just an example

    Forgot to say haven't got a second car but am sharing the misses ka sport at the mo but think she wont apreciate me taking it and will probably get left behind on the way

    Keep toying with the idea of getting a tdi mk4/a3 for a daily driver and turn the s3 into more of a toy but don't know if i can bring myself to rip out the s3's interior as was one of the reasons for getting one?

    Now that AITP is out the way I can concentrate on the Ring trip. Got a haldex oil an filter change to do tonight then attempting to fit the Boxster calipers tomorrow night.

    Also got to hit the track on GT5 every evening to get all 148 bends ingrained into my memory. Do you think i'm taking this a bit too seriously???
