    A few pics from the Nurburgring this weekend,,,

    Just thought you'd be interested.













    This GT3 lost concentration a little and went over the kerb onto the grass, over corrected and hit the Armco barrier on the opposite side. Not too much damage thank god, as he later recovered and continued.







    Caught this guy all 4 wheels off the ground...

    Re: A few pics from the Nurburgring this weekend,,

    Thanks for the comments guys. I'm still learning with the DSLR, but unpredictable light was causing me a few issues, particularly shutter speed...anyway glad you enjoyed them.

    I'm sure I heard the passenger shout some expletives when they launched off the crest.

    I wish I was there with you as 2 days isn't long enough especially for a 500 mile (each way) journey.

    I'm no good with names or their location as yet, but all (except pic 2) were taken at Pflanzgarten I think.



    No. 2 was on the straight just before a left hander which goes over a bridge (over the 257 - Trierer Strasse).



    More pics to follow, once I've reduced them...

    Mike's right. God you should have heard it. People ran for cover when it started up apparently... lol Unfortunately I never heard it as I was taking pictures a few km away.

    Re: A few pics from the Nurburgring this weekend,,

    Thanks Mike. I never knew of the existance of this car. It's stunning, and sounds like it has good engineers behind it.

    Re: A few pics from the Nurburgring this weekend,,

    So is this car actually available for sale? Just read the article on the Gumpert site. It says Bugatti engineers love it, and Pagani himself wants one. That is pretty high praise indeed.

    Actually Roland Gumpert (former head of AUDI 's sports division) sold about a dozen of the Apollo MKI last year.

    BTW Walter Röhrl after a testdrive said: "Very impressive, not to say scary..."

    The car on the Ring should be the Apollo MK II (not sure whether Gumpert sold one already).

    BTW @ 270 km/h the car creates more downforce than it's own weight

    Re: A few pics from the Nurburgring this weekend,,

    Great photos Post more if you have

    Re: A few pics from the Nurburgring this weekend,,

    Brilliant shots!! Thanks a lot for posting. We could take a lot more of your pics...

    Re: A few pics from the Nurburgring this weekend,,

    God I need to drive the R8 and the GT3.

    At least once in my life. C'mon boss, give one !!!!

    Does that mean it can drive upside down on the roof of long tunnels?
