Well, my current car a B7 RS4 is going today so last night I emptied it and cleaned it ready for handover at the dealer, I removed my descrete nurburgring badge and have it on good authority that its the car that earns the sticker not the driver, so if I want to put one on the S5 the only way is to get back there;)

I am pretty certain I will go before the end of the year, i will keep everyone posted in case I tag along with somone elses trip, it will be nice not to be the only S5 :D

Its a scary place, two bikers killed in a weekend last time I was there, treated with respect its an awesome place to get to;)

Cheers

Jason

I can't wait to get on the 'ring someday, hopefully in something better than a rental Focus!

You Europeans... curse you and your proximity to the Nordschleife!

2 hours to Folkestown, 30 mins under the English Channel, 5 hours from Calais to Nurburgring :D quite easy and not ridiculously expensive as a trip, on the proviso you dont 'bend' anything and keep it shiney side up and greasy side down ;)

How cool is that, Im going with some BMW buddies the same weekend.

Will have to catch up and say hello:cheers:

Were going Friday and coming home tuesday.

Went last year and loved it. Found myself driving at 80% though not 110% like on a UK trackday.

It is a very dangerous place.:yikes:

I am a hard driver especially on UK Track days. But the ring i will be only 80-85% such a lethal place. Not somewhere to set records.
