    Can you tell us something about the differences in behaviour between the various cars participating? Notwithstanding, the abilities of individual drivers, of course. We can see a large variery of cars new and old.

    Also are the BBS (LM?) wheels your regular road wheels or they are your track wheels? What size wheel/tyre do you use?

     The BBS wheels I am using are only for the track. They are 18''   295/30 and I have Michelin Cup tires on them . Otherwise I have the standard Carrera S rims on my car.

    As to the behavior of the other cars, they are mostly linked to the abilities on the drivers. Some people with less powerful/modern cars are faster then newer cars because the pilot is more squilled , or less afraid, or just know his car better. A big difference is how much you know the track. If you master the proper line, know what's next, you are easily faster then more powerful cars with less experience of the N'Ring.

    Then of course with equally skilled drivers, the ranking goes accordingly to the 'paper' numbers.

    Thank you!

     To add a bit more :

    That Suzuki Swift  ( roll cage, special springs, cup tiers )was as fast as my car in the very tight slow corners, maybe even a bit faster sometimes. But then had no chance if one take a 200 m portion of the track.

    I was equally fast  as the 996 Gt3 RS is straights and in the very long/fast corners, but quite slower in entering corners, slower in medium and thight turns, faster after the exit of the turns when it was time to put back full throttle.

    The Scuderia in our group was certainly the one driving the slowest .... he was so scared to crash his beloved dream car .

    I think he wanted to do the course, although I'm not sure.  He also mentioned some R-rated tyres for the occasion.  I'll probably meet him this weekend, so will find out.  I'd be keen to do another event - but maybe a slightly cheaper one..

    Totally agree. It is, first and foremost, down to the driver:

    • How well do you know the track (which is especially important at the Ring).
    • How well do you know the car. In particular, how well do you know it at the limit Smiley
    • How much risk are you willing to take and what would be the impact if anything goes wrong (I guess a function of car value, insurance coverage and wallet size Smiley )

    Only once you master the above, then will the actual power and handling of the car make a difference.

    Through the turns I did not have a slightest chance against Cram in his mini. That is excellent driver versus rubbish driver in a nutshell Smiley

    Although I think our friend with the F360 took the price for being... ehrm... slooow Smiley

     I want , next year, to also do the Sports Auto course. I think it is cheaper as it is only 2 days .

    We could check that out . I know there is a session in september, but I would rather do it in spring so there is room for the scuderia in september

     That sums it up perfectly Smiley

    Bluelines, as you will get to know the limits of your new 911 more , you will see that you CAN put FULL throttle at a lot of corner exits and the car is very happy with it Smiley

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: Pics from the scuderia course at Nürburgring

    Great report, can't wait to take part in this course!

    I was at the ring yesterday, it was terrible, sunshine + sunday = Crowded². I'll be back next week for more.


    Re: Pics from the scuderia course at Nürburgring

    Which car are you taking to the NoS Porker? Did you get the VX220 fixed?

    Re: Pics from the scuderia course at Nürburgring

    Easy, I collected the VX on saturday, the engine has been rebuilt at hefty cost. Sadly I had to run it in yesterday, so I didn't get a chance to push it properly.

    I'm hoping to sell it asap and on to something more robust.

    BTW: I'll be in London tomorrow, if I manage to stay for a couple of days I'll let you know. Smiley

    Sure, we could meet up for a drink after I finish work

    Hi Bluelines,

    at least, it seems, that you got your "GTS" already ahead of all the others.......


    Re: Pics from the scuderia course at Nürburgring

    Nice pics Bluelines, awesome Carrera S, indeed very GTS-like in those pictures.
