I really didn't take many photos this year, however I did get some good ones. I've made a gallery of the photos from the bunker tour here, including moody telephones, noise grain and toilets!

When we came out of the bunker tour there was an Alfa Romeo club visiting. Many more than this but I particularly liked this little lineup. I hope none broke down as there was no way Bongard could get up the tiny road to the car park...

Proof that the Roadster does fit one Coco.

I think this space is just about big enough

"Is this being used as a Ringtaxi?" combined with mass trucker's arm...

I got some video too, first a copy/continuation of Bobele's video of the river shenanigans:


Then of some Rodelbahn action. Look at me being a pussy and using the brakes, didn't injure myself on the track though like some people. :p

Holy crap, that Rodelbahn looks like fun. Also yessss, you got us being busted by The Man.

I can be paid in beer, I guess.

Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo... Ringmeet 2018. That was a thing..



My review of Ringmeet 2018 comes in 2 versions:

#1: tl;dr: Awesome!






#2: Have a photo. Or two.

Thursday

After losing some plastic on the Autobahn around 245kph indicated, I made it with the rest of the car intact to the Ring, where I found first people. Mostly the Adus-Family! We proceeded to set up the kitchentent and then the usual standing around, looking at cars, doing nothing, proceeded, followed by beer-o-clock after it got dark!

Tent-assemlby!


People!









Suddenly a wild Panda!







Squishing people into Panda!





More people, tents n cars!































Suddenly lack of sunlight!




Beer-o-Clock!

Friday:

More of the usual. Standing around, doing nothing. At least where I was. Well, we also did some S8 fixing.


Although the day started with random illegal offroading :p







Then we did that S8 fixing thing..





Some re-badging... wasn't me!



People standing around! Or sitting aroaund! Or in Tobi's case.. sleeping around!













*shrug*



Am A Rock! And Adrian!









During standing around, doing nothing, some people "volunteered" to BBQ while standing around too..















































Because D-Fence...












What it looks like when a Mustang shows up to a carmeet!




Panda-schenanigans!







??!??!-schenanigans?








And then beer-o-clock happened again!











What's left of the traveling Zastava..




Then pub-quiz happened! And a lot of drinking..
