    Right just got round to it, if you got 10 mins spare check out my 2nd lap round the ring.
    Westle is in the S3 in front.

    Nice, looks great fun! both look quite nippy!
    How did the S3 feel on the track? i did Brands hatch last year, but that doesnt compare to the test that track puts a car through!

    Enjoyed that thanks.
    Good camera angle, really get the feeling of how hilly/undulating the track is.

    Thanks for all the replys glad you all injoyed it.

    The photos. I gave my Canon 7D to a friend who was with us, who is a photographer hence some decent shoots. there are also plenty of photograhers round the ring who put the pics up on the web so you can buy and download later. google nurburgring photo.

    we were having a little blast every now and then but mainly following trying to get use to the track, it's so long by the time you get to the end you forgot the beginning. lol

    The car handled lovely. i've got AP coilovers and R32 Anti roll bars on there which made a massive difference to the standard setup on Westle's S3.

    I would go as far as saying it's up there in the best 4 days of my life. can't wait to go back next year.:thumbsup:

    Don't mean to be rude but did it cost a lot of money to go there and go round the track?

    I think it cost about £650 all in. we got there on one tank all the way i was amazed 420 miles its a record for me.
    so two tanks there and back
    euro tunnel £150
    35 euro a night hotel.
    it's about 22 euro a lap but the more you buy the cheaper it becomes so i think 8 laps was 80 euro.
    you need petrol for the track they sell 102 ocatane for the same price as our 99 at shell "SWEET"
    food and drink money
    you don't really need alot more.

    sorry plus 30 euro for 20 mins on the michael schumacher go kart track which is on the way to the ring. "the best go karts i have ever been in" talk about pimp my go kart. Lol

    That pretty good if its one of the best days of your life I think it would cost me a bit more but would still be worth it.

    Good video. Nice choice of song aswell.

    Do you recall your average and top speed?
    Also, I remember reading somewhere that recording videos was not permitted. Was this the case?

    Edit: One more question, did you wear a helmet?

    Westle what was the name of the hotel? it was about a 10 min drive really nice little place.
    im not to sure on the average speed as i don't think i even looked down at the dials, i'd say somewhere between 70-90 cause there is a lot of corners. you can really get you speed up in about 3 places over 110.

    as for recording videos NO your not permitted but to be honest i had it recording with a marshall looking in the car before even going on the track and he didn't say anything. i think there only bothered about it if you have a crash same with timing your laps aswell. don't take my word for it tho I might of be lucky!!!

    Ohh thinking about i had used my iphone to record the video with a window mount. maybe he thought it was just a phone.

    Edit: no I didn't wear one. it is advisable tho something like 30% of deaths on the track could have been avioded if they had one on.

    Before you go read every single page on the website. very useful info on here. plus a bit of a eye opener as well.

    I cant remember the name of the Hotel but it was a dutch one that was just off the main high street in Adenau, about 200 yards down the road from Pinochios Restaurant.

    In past years I've always stayed at Eddys hotel which is the hotel right next to the track that you can see on all the games where you come down the steep hill. That was 35 Euros a night.

    Good going westle upfront in the standard to the most part S3. One of my friends put me to shame though doing a 9.45 lap on his second run I believe in a standard mk1 leon cupra. He has race experience though.

    Lots of fun but Id never find myself pushing the S3 to its limits 1000 miles from home. Quite fancy a track car next time round.

    Good video mate :) Glad you both had a good time. Hopefully one day when i have a faster car i'll go there.
    There a thread about ASN going to the ring in events. Think there was quite a bit of interest to.
    Be good if we all arrange one for ASN

    I'm perfectly happy with any of my lap times and I'll never push to get something better. My S3 has to get me home and has to get me to work again on the monday so I dont like to take any unnecessary risks.

    The last lap we did was 2 hours before we left for Calais and we both said we'd "take it easy" but we ended up doing our fastest lap of the weekend and both had a scary understeer moment. If you're all lucky S3 Babay might post it up (nudge nudge, wink wink)

    I would love to go to the ring with a cheap stripped out 205 or something and blat it round without worrying about a few minor offs :)
