I have just returned from what I am going to call My Motorsport Honeymoon. I recently got married and Victoria and I decided instead of doing something right away we would wait for the upcoming Trip that she had won from her Company to Germany. Since all we had to pay for was my Flight it was a ideal way to save some money and have a Great Trip to call our Honeymoon.
Left to my own devices I would not really have done something like this. I can now say that it was the Single Best Trip I have ever gone on in all my Years!!! I have only one person to Thank, The Love of my Life.......My Wife Victoria. She almost loves Motorsport as much as I and I know she loved this trip as much as I did. Maybe even more, we saw a couple of her friends in both Germany and the UK.
So here I share some of the Highlights of our Trip with the Good ol' Slot Car Guys. My head is still spinning! I have a Million Pics but I thought I would load some of my faves.
The Porsche Museum
Walking under the Track Entering Hockenheim for a ADAC and Lamborghini Super Trofeo Race!!!
The Hills of Nurburg at 7:30 in the morning.
RSR, where we rented out Renault Clio Cup Car
Some more of their rentals
Our Car, it may not look like much but it was probably the Best Handling Car I have ever driven at speed!! 220hp, A 6-Speed with a Clutch, Full Suspension, Brakes and Super Sticky Tires. What a Great Little Car!!! It would have Blown the Doors off a Honda Fit!
Waiting in Line to get on the Ring behind a BMW Ring Taxi
The Entrance to the "Green Hell", or as I like to call it, the "Green Heaven"!
25 Euro and this is what you get to do
and another (Me Driving and Victoria taking Pics and Film.)
What a Trip. I managed to pull off a 12 minute Lap on my Third Lap. The Track was shut down every 2 hours or so for another Accident. 3 People Died there on the Previous 2 Days before we got there. It is the Most Dangerous Race Track in the World for a reason.
It might have been the Best Thing I have ever done in my life! If you are in Germany, go rent a Race Car and go to the Nurburgring! You will never forget it.
