    Guys I’m humbled by the appreciation, does make me feel very good, but I’m a bit embarrassed to derail the thread like this, others are much better at that.

    Isn't derailing threads part of being a good rennteam member ? Smiley

    We had another great few days at the Ring. Nice this time to be able to meet up with Kobalt and his wife again. Also with the Italien guys. 

    A friend with his Pista came along. What a missile  that car is and it was great to see him drive it as fast as he could around the Ring.

    It was nice meeting again! 

    Day one was a bit wet but day to was really good.

    I rode with wife in RS when not driving the BMW 325 McLaren killer :-)

    More seriously: I was on slicks in the BMW and some RS's probably didn't know that when they tried to follow me in some of the fast downhill sections where they struggled hard to keep the car on track.

    It is incredible fun to drive an under powered car :-)

    The Pista is a monster pulling out after each corners. Just disappears like a rocket on any accelerations.

    But once both at a high speed, then not much difference and around corners I would say, the same. 

    So basically, the Pista was faster then me, but because he could accelerate more , due to the Turbo torque and much higher power . But he did not loose me... I managed to keep a steady distance around one lap.

    Note that the owner took the Pista for the first time on a track and that he has only done the Ring 4 days .

    but 720HP and 770Nm cannot be ignored.

    Next time ask (politely) to drive it Smiley. This will be the true test.

    Re: Dave and Gnil @ Nürburgring Nordschleife

    N24H

    We made it to the end  :-)

    p3 in class and p63 in total.

    Basically we ran with out any technical problems. In Q1 we had a loose front damper but that was about it.
    Unfortunately one of us drivers got a penalty in Q1 for driving to fast under Code60 so we had to start last of all whatever we did in Q2 and Q3. Annoying but not much to do about it but to leave that behind.
    I did the start stint and actually manage to hand over the car att the position we would have had if we not got the penalty. It rained from start until they red flagged the race at 22:30.

    Then I did the restart at 08:00 in wet. We stayed on wets more or less the whole race but got a stint or so on slicks.

    An hour after the checkered flag we got the word that we was disqualified which took the edge of the celebration. Actually it killed us for a while.

    A N24H race is an emotional roller coaster. It is basically the same as 6 VLN (NLS) races but so different emotionally.

    We where disqualified because one of us was said to be done one lap short of the 15 mandatory laps.
    This was true - one of us actually only did 14 race laps because he also was on the lap when the race was red flagged because of bad weather. We convinced the race director that that driver easily could have done 15 laps if we only knew that the red flagged lap didn't count. Race director changed the verdict - very nice done as it was our own fault, we should have known about the red flagged lap. At the same time: They could have told us that the red flgged lap didn't count when they told us that all drivers still needed to do 15 laps each even though the race no longer was "4H race.

    Night and rain on a dark Nordschleife.

    Re: Dave and Gnil @ Nürburgring Nordschleife

    Thanks guys,

    Gnil: You get used to the fast cars. But the speed difference on some parts of the track is just enormous. Especially in the dry. Slow corners they are not so much faster but in the fast section... wow!

    The biggest problem for us in our car are the cars that are faster than us but with slower drivers. We simply can't overtake them unless we surprise them during breaking. They can drive slow into the corners just to accelerate out.

    Our car has no "turbo-boost-power" button so we must drive with momentum. When they break before a corner we loose so much time. Very frustrating - but in the end fun :-)
