Jay Leno should pick it up on the cheap and move his garage their to add to the museum. That would be perfect...

Depends where you plan on taking a "spin" at. Also, if something happens to the car because of you flashing the Cobb, you can be held liable for the repair costs and here in Germany, it ain't cheap.

If you plan on taking a spin on the 'ring with the rental, it is strictly prohibited and if you are involved in an accident, you are liable for all the damages incurred.

Yea... it is not allowed to take your rental car to a race track like the 'Ring. They have spotters there and they get a "finder's fee" for turning you in! Funny but true.

That said there are PLENTY of track rental cars in and around the track. Just hit one of those place up. Most are in Adenau or in Nurburg.

You could try Google...

The guy (Mike) who hosts the Bridge to Gantry ( www.bridgetogantry.com ) also rents race cars...

Anyway. When the Paul Ricard racetrack has been sold, it has been completely closed to the public, no track days nothing. Lets hope the same thing doesn't happen to the ring.
No religion, proof. Great, you have a couple of examples of this "theory" not working...the majority of the time it does in any business. I've got quite a bit of education and experience, but thanks "professor".

We can at least agree on the fact it would be a sad day if the track closes...such is life sometimes, unfortunately.
