Broadcasting to you from the 'Ring...

Yep, I'm mental and I'm back at the Nurburgring. There's an ADAC event going on right now, sort of an SCCA type of thing.

Anyway I signed up for another 2-day BMW Nordschleife session but that wasn't enough...

Last week when someone cancelled out of the first of two 2-day sessions I signed up or that too. A minor hotel change and less menacing of Dutch tourists on the Autobahn in my rental M3 and it was set up, good to go.

I will now have four days on the 'Ring. Sure, it's the same 2-day event repeated but I'll take it. It is probably my last trip.

Anyone from Bimmerpost here?

I'm back home.

It was awesome. No surprise, my previous 3 trips were too. Weather was perfect.

Once we got a consistently experienced group together we hammered out laps in the low 8'40s". I wish I could had a go with just the instructor as that was how I did my best lap ever last year at one of these BMW events.

Anyway I was concerned that 4 days, two back-to-back 2-day events, might be too tiring or boring but no way. It really actually helped.

I've said this was my last time but my wife says it wasn't. Hopefully she knows better than me.

If you ever get the chance, you have got to go to the 'Ring.

After these trips and thousands of miles on the Autobahn in a rental M3 I know why I have this car and why I configured it the way I did (versus what I would do if I lived in Germany). But my car does need some of Mike Benvo's touch. That's next!
