    Sure thing Porsche-Jeck, looking forward to it

    Re: Nürburgring 6th of may

    Before I forget: if you see a red Elise MK II with a Recklinghausen numberplate (RE-), you may forward my greetings to the driver (Guido) - I know he'll be there tomorrow. I'm sure he won't mind to spend a taxi lap to another Lotus fan. It's a worthwile experience - he's a hell of a driver and after the taxi lap you know what's possible with an Elise on NoS (after 1000 laps or so practice)

    Re: Nürburgring 6th of may

    I have just returned from the Ring. Unfortunately I haven't found your friend with his red Elise :/ But there have also been so many people around the Nordschleife and the F1 Grand Prix Circuit. Renault is holding a 2 day track event and the entrance is free, all the parking lots have been full.
    I had the chance to drive with another very experienced Elise MK1 driver. He is driving the NS since '89 and knows it literally by heart. I didn't stop grinning for one sec when I was sitting in the passenger's seat...wholy moly, some g-forces I experienced, I can tell!!
    As for the cars that I have seen today: 2 Ariel Atoms and 1 Carrera GT, which we were lucky enough to overtake but only because the driver was too careful to risk anything!
    Oh and I have seen 2 very beautiful 993 RS' (in black), one of my favorite cars!
    There have also been lots of CSL's and 1 orange Gallardo, and of course a couple of GT3RS...
    Ah yes, and 2 348 Ferrari's and 1 Mercedes CLK DTM AMG
    ....and a lot of beautiful women

    Re: Nürburgring 6th of may

    Glad you enjoyed it I'm sure you're appreciation for the Elise is even bigger now after some hot laps on NoS
    As you're mentioning that you're "instructor" in an Elise MK I overtook a CGT - was it Jens

    Re: Nürburgring 6th of may

    No, it's not Jens
    This is him, I'm sure he doesn't mind if I post his pic, you can see him pretty often on the track anyway

    He is a very friendly person, taking everyone who's asking around the Ring.
    Now I am really interested in knowing the limits of the MK2 model (the one I'm owning). They are a little bit heavier, but also more powerful...
    Next time your friend Guido takes on the ring, I would be really happy to hop in, if it's ok with him
    Would you happen to know, which exact model he owns? e.g. Rover engine, or Toyota?

    Re: Nürburgring 6th of may

    Great EU numberplate means NoS is hometurf
    Doesn't look like the stock suspension
    AFAIK Guido's MK II is equipped with the Toyota engine (I'm not 100% sure).
    Maybe we all can arrange a meeting for either the prolonged weekend 17/18/19 May (not Sunday 20 - I'll test a Vette then ) or weekend 27/28 may
    Just let me know - maybe some other Rennteamers also would like to join us

    I guess I will be there on both dates I'm looking forward to it

    Re: Nürburgring 6th of may

    btw is this Guido? If so, then I have seen him a couple of times at the ring...

    Re: Nürburgring 6th of may

    Yes that's him Ultra-fast Elise driver - a taxi lap with him is a very special experience
    Looking forward to our meeting at the Green Hell
    My new Michelins (installed today) need a proper break-in

    Re: Nürburgring 6th of may

    how about a elise with honda type r engine!?

    Re: Nürburgring 6th of may

    I have a friend who has done this conversion (Honda engine)...many say it's the best choice if you want to tune your car (e.g. in comparison to compressors and the like).
