Nurburgring GP ESS SC.... 7 April 13


So yesterday I went out to the ring. The weather was great!

This was my first time at the GP track. There was an accident there, so we had to wait a bit for it to clear up.

my rear tires are at 45%. Stop tech pads, stock rotors (60k miles). EDC. ESS 575 kit.

This is a cut out from the 20 min session. I cut the first 3 laps. I was around 2:30, and I think i got one at 2:20.

Later we went to Nordschleife and I did a few laps there. Was a great day! Now I have to figure out new brake set up, and find used track wheels....

The GP track is so ridiculously wide open compared to the 'ring, isn't it? We were LOL'ing the first lap there after 2+ days on the 'ring. Only really odd spot is turn one where you hang the inside front wheel in the air. Ok, the chicane w/the big tires on each side isn't comforting to go through at 10/10ths, but it's not too bad.

We heard a lot of "meow" sounds from the locals as we wore helmets on both tracks...

Nice stuff! Damn rear view mirror, I get what you are doing though. If you want I am going to be there Sunday the 21st for some laps. The weather should be perfect!

BTW: Is that a timer on your iDrive?

+1, what's up with the timer on the iDrive?

Front bbk w/ race pads and a square setup works wonders. Looks like you might be lacking confidence in your brakes.
