    Im going back next year. One of the best bits was getting pished on the ferry there. Newcastle to Amsertdam.

    I would recommend Center Parcs. About 15 miles from the ring. Well its about 4 but the road length is 15 miles. Get your own villa, supermarket and a swimming pool.

    Cant wait!

    Cracking pics ....wish I had a Porshe 911 Carerra 4 to do teh Nurgburg Ring....would not be the same in a A4 2.5TDi Avant Quattro Sport (sport being an interesting take)

    Did you see anyone stack their pride and joy ?

    well seen a porsche 911 on about a j plate i think it was parked against a nice concrete wall which didnt move untill the track was closed at 7.30

    as for insurance i did look into it but you are looking at £80 a day and tbh i will be taking it out next time i go over :yes:

    Agreed. Got back yesterday. Sunday was closed no end of times cos of a few fatal accidents... Had one guy crash right infront of me... Had to swerve round him. That was pretty scary. Was an amazing weekend though!

    I spent £370, inc ferry, a night in kent, 3 nights at the ring, food, diesel, 4 laps and shedloads of beer. Had a passenger though so we split it between two...
