I have a racing tyre I nicked from a Le Mans type racer AGES ago, does that count?
It's a rear rain tyre, slightly used

Pics of that please!!!!! A racing tyre is something extremely valuable to have...


I've only got a bag full of rubber marbles picked up from the side of the main straight at the Hungaroring after the F1 race in '07 had finished and the organisers opened the gates for the public to invade the track for the podium ceremony.

I did the same in the last four Hungarian GPs! :D

And I have a tyre from a Renault M?gane Trophy car (WSR, Hungaroring, last year - the mechanics gave fans some used ones!).

I have tons of pics of it, but I'm not at home right now so you'll have to wait a couple of hours

I have to add that the tyre itself is now being used for a far less glamourous purpose, it's used as a lawn ornament around a large flowerpot :lol:

here we go. My mate is on the left, he got the front tyre, I got the rear tyre.



As far as I know the tyres came from this car :



it even says "for racing purposes only" on the tyre itself :)

On this plaque are two pieces of former Indianapolis Motor Speedway racing surface removed for the resurfacing that took place a few years back (one each of brick and asphalt, 1? x 1? x ? inches).

I've got a top fuel rear tire if anyone cares. We use it as a beanbag chair :D

Since we're on about tires... there was a photo of the carcass of a Goodyear tire floating around the forum some time ago. Does anyone still remember it? Judging by the radius, tread width and white label, it looked to me like an early 1990s rear tire from a F1 car. Is that photo still somewhere around?

And here I was thinking I was the only one who collected marbles :D

I was in Barcelona during the summer and got a chance to visit the Circuit de Catalunya. Just as I arrived I was told they were closing for the day. Having spent a good thirty minutes walking with severe hangovers in the scorching heat just to get to the track, I was a bit disappointed. So I decided to take matters into my own hands and jump the fence. I walked down to the track and saw some guys in the pits preparing 16 Audi R8's for an Audi driving school. Oh boy. Turned out they weren't going to drive them until the next day, so I was free to walk the track - probably one of the best experiences I've ever had.
Collected some carbon-fibre shards and marbles but obviously I forgot them at the hotel :(

I also have this 1:1 scale F2007 steering wheel from Amalgam Fine Collection:






It really is a beauty. Such an amazing attention to detail.

I now officially hate you. :mad:


:lol::lol::lol: Just joking... How much of a pain in the wallet was that?
Luckily, not much. In fact, I won it in a competition at PitPass.com during the 2007 Brazilian Grand Prix, guessing correctly who would take pole, fastest lap and race win. Retail-price is an insane ?1250,00 though, so I would never have bought it myself.

^Ive been to the Ferrari factory at Modena and they had a couple of REAL steering wheels for sale.
I think the cheapest one was 48,000?, but you do get a certificate of authenticity and Schumacher's signature with it.

In the end I didn't buy it because 48,000? is about 5 times as much as my car...

2007 Brazilian GP? Gotcha! :lol: So you're Danish, aren't you?
Haha, yeah that's me. If you're interested in the wheel though, it's up for grabs at the right price. I'm looking to sell it to finance a test in Formula Palmer Audi.

In the well-known tradition of the Interwebs, pics or it didn't happen.
