    I'll be driving on saturday 21st May. Maybe we meet on or around the track .

    Re: 2005 Porsche Days Francorchamps

    Lucky, i wish i lived in Europe, was born there, but now living in North America...

    Re: 2005 Porsche Days Francorchamps

    It's a unique opportunity to experience one of the world's most (in-)famous high speed corners: the 'Raidillon', shown below from different angles

    Of course I'll be there. I don't want to miss these days. Good idea to meet.

    Re: 2005 Porsche Days Francorchamps

    What a mitical track! Isn't that uphill, wide open throttle, and blind right hander also called "Eau Rouge" because there was a small red tinted river going though underneath that?

    Re: 2005 Porsche Days Francorchamps

    Yepp, Eau rouge is the entry of that track section, Raidillon is the unique uphill corner (entering it you benefit from the compression of the car, after that you feel a certain lift...quite freaky, but so addictive ). Check out the full track plan herewith:


    Re: 2005 Porsche Days Francorchamps

    ah, I had them the other way around then, thanks for the correction
    you always hear about that WOT uphill corner, must be quite an experience

    I want to be there. Too early to commit but hopefully they don't run out of places.

    Hi,

    I'm going to attend all days. I'm looking forward to meeting some of you.

    Cheers

    Re: 2005 Porsche Days Francorchamps

    Is it necessary to install a 5-point harness system if you are going to track your car at this event? Both PCA and POC here in the US require you to install a 5-point harness before you track the car and I am not ready to do that on my car.

    Re: 2005 Porsche Days Francorchamps

    @ fixed wing: Even if it's still far away from May, be advised that places go out rather quickly. This event attracts a lot of Porsche-fans from all over Europe. The sooner you order the better. I would not advise Sunday since the 'parade' eats up 1 driving session of all categories (Fun, Sport, Racing). I'll be in 'Fun' on saturday.

    @ Thomas: looking forward to see you back. Still driving that superb white-red GT3 RS?

    @ V trader: no obligation for any 5 point harness. Just a fit and willing street-911 (oops, forgot to mention there are even 2 runs foreseen for Cayenne's, on Saturday and Sunday ). Furthermore your car should be fitted with 2 towing hooks (front and rear), and you should wear a helmet. That's it! Off course, you may come in a prepared Porsche with slicks and harnesses and all these nice things, but then you can only drive in the 'racing' category.

    Re: 2005 Porsche Days Francorchamps

    Within less than 2 weeks it's happening guys!!!

    For those still hesitating, Saturday is fully booked but there's some places left on friday and sunday.

    To get into proper mental condition, the attached picture may give you an idea of how Formula 1 drivers drive on this track:



    the figures represent respectively (in green)lateral G-force experienced by the driver,(in red) speed in miles/h, (in black: speed in km/h, and the gear selected.

    Compared to that I'm afraid my performance will be ridiculous
