The ring is filled with cars from every marque. What an experience I'd love to go through one day.

Anybody got an idea as to why the caged E92 M3 driver covered his steering wheel roundel partially?

It's Velcro tape for a GoPro.

The E92 looks like an awesome build, but that half dozen warning lights in the dash would scare the s... out of me

I'm going to the ring this saturday to test out my new ess 575 kit (a bit scared). There is also an Mflight meet going on there (probably around 20+ M cars).

I have seen that blue mustang, he works in the same vicinity that I do sounds mean, and It's a 5.0, so should handle well

I've noticed you posted just about the only info I've been able to find about that schirmer e92! My friend was just at the ring last weekend and sent a couple pics of it to me.

As far as why he might have that what appears to be velcro over the the wheel roundel, some drivers post track maps and other notes on the wheel such as "new pads" or what tires they are on. Obviously I cant confirm if thats why his is on there.

That crazy JB E92 M3 was spotted a couple of times in the insane photo thread from Tuner GP Hockenheimring

///M Flight Club was there last weekend in May. I think we had 30+ ///M's, including 1M, M3, M5, M6, and an X5M. Most of us went on the track and had a blast!

Here's some pics of mine...

I might go to Switzerland towards the end of August for a business trip. While I'm there, of course I will take a week or so of before coming to States, and visit Nurburgring. And of course do couple laps.

Maybe we should have a sticky thread somewhere in the forum for people to meet at Nurburgring?

I went to the Ring twice, euro deliveries for 335 and M3. Aside from the eye candy in the paddock, what I found utterly fascinating was the palpable buzz of excitement in the air, the friendliness of the drivers.

There were motorcycle riders crossing themselves before buying a ticket, sweaty palms and nervous glances everywhere, you can strike up a conversation with anybody.

I once met an American expat who instructs at the Ring, he drove my 335 once and instructed me ona couple more.

It's like no other place, and I will go there many more times before I croak, hopefully.
