Nurburgring Touristenfahrten on 12.10.08 and 13.10.08 with BMW M3 (E92)

Spent the long weekend down at the Ring. On Sunday the track was supposed to open at 0800 but due to heavy fog, it didn't open until around 1300. I was only able to get one lap in due to the large number of people who turned up. I found out real quick that the PS2s are no good on a partially wet track and had to turn down my aggressiveness in some of the corners (basically where ever the track was shaded, it was wet and slippery). Monday was much of the same, parts of the track was still damp, took it easy. Enjoy the videos. See you at the track next year!

Camera = Sony Cybershot strapped onto my TomTom GPS mount.
Sunday:


Monday:


For high quality versions:

Ha, I was there too but I had to leave right after the track opened, as my rental was due for return at Munich airport at 6pm on Sunday. What a wasted morning with the fog; I have 11 laps left on my ticket but I am moving home Friday so I won't get to use them. I was suspecting it was going to be crazy for the first hour or so after things got moving, as it was I could barely get out of the parking lot to leave there were so many people waiting to get on track.
Nice laps, btw. The car sounds great! Where were you parked? I only recall seeing the white M3 with the Hamman stuff on it over by the ticket shed, and another white one behind the Ring-taxi stand.

I was at the cafe side of the parking lot, way to the end which was why I was able to get in so quickly because as soon as I heard the siren go off, even before the guy announced the track was open, I had already started the car and headed for the gate. My friends weren't so lucky, they had parked in the overflow parking across the street and they were literally stuck in there for over 2 hours. By that time I was done eating lunch and was at Adenau Forst as a spectator. There were many white M3s there, we brought 3 of them from my group alone.

Love the two white 1-series together - that guy in the one with the flares really didn't want to let you past did he!

That 1 series driver was a prick.

Which EDC setting did you prefer?

EDC was set at normal, DCT was set at S5 and I was using MDM. I'll probably try some other settings next year as I get more comfortable with the car.

Awesome pics and video, thanks for sharing. I love that place.

8:44 BTG with a speed zone. Excellent time. You bested me by 2 mins. Of course I was in a 95hp Benz B-class on snow tires.

Is that a stock exhaust? If so, it sounds very nice.

Because it's an American Spec car. If he was to buy a Euro spec car and then bring it back to the states after his tour in Europe was complete, he'd have to pay out the butt to get it up to American specs.
