    Re: Dave and Gnil @ Nürburgring Nordschleife

    Yeah, we keep seeing this on the news today, as the entire region is heavily affected. Luckily, the hills in the Netherlands are lower, so a lot less funneling of the water. My thoughts go out to the people in the affected areas. Hope all our Rennteam members are safe!

    Re: Dave and Gnil @ Nürburgring Nordschleife

    Terrifying pictures and reports from Germany. My condolences to anyone who lost loved ones.

    We live 30 meters from one of the large rivers in Switzerland. Thursday night the fire brigade came and mounted the fixed two meter high aluminum flooding barriers around the lower part of town. On Tuesday morning the river had flooded and we had water up to the barrier.

    The situation here has improved but it is not over.

    Oh dear.

    That is how it would have looked here too without the barriers. The town learned from the last floorings in 2005 and 2007. Lots of investments into flooding protection. So far it has paid off very well with no damage to people or property.

    This is closed to Belgium and Luxembourg borders. French side, small town called Longuyon.

    It's crazy, we had proposed to Manthey and others in the area that workers/customers of theirs affected could stay in my colleagues place in Adenau, now already 6 families are moving in. They lost everything, literally the roofs over their heads. Sobering indeed.

    The river is usually going up during raining season but not in July nor to that level. Hopefully the sun will stay around for few days. The level is already down by a meter ish but this is way too high to not flood the area again if there is any rain within the coming days. The small town is like Venezia now angry

    Wow, that’s very generous of you guys. What a great thing you’re doing for these families. I hope they can get back on their feet quickly.

    Very well done!


    Re: Dave and Gnil @ Nürburgring Nordschleife

    Last Sunday the 'ring photographers decided to donate all their proceeds to those affected by the floods.  So I bought a couple from our previous trip for the Manthey event...
