    1300 miles later I've got back safely from my trip to the ring. What a great experience it was! Managed to get a couple laps in the dry but wish the rain kept off for a bit longer.

    Had as a problem with oil pressure light on dash so couldn't go back on in the end so was a bit gutted. Think this is gonna be my oil pick up from what I have read up on.

    Stayed at a place called Ringvilla in Adenau and was awesome, well recommended for anyone planning a trip.

    Did you remove the towing eye cover prior to going on the ring?

    Would love to do this but, don't really want to risk my cars. Do they still do the taxi thing in an M5?

    Great photos! It's a blast isn't it. Hoping to get back there this year. Popped my 'Ring cherry in an 07 S3, then it did us proud all the way to Stuttgart, Strasbourg, Paris and home. Happy memories.

    I had my towing eye in for first lap then got told to remove it later on. Didn't have time to put the cover back on. It's back on now though :)

    They do a ring taxi in alsorts. You can have a passenger ride in a McLaren for €499 for one lap 😳
