Just be aware that normal rental agencies specifically prohibit going on the nordschleife. That is to say, there won't be anyone stopping you from going, but if something happens, you will be ROYALLY screwed.

On the upside, the convertible roof should make it easier to communicate with the driver while manhandling the gun rack.

I have heard there are spotters around the ring and you will be barred from renting with that agency or quite some time. Basically, if you want to go on the track, rent from a place by the ring like Apex, Rent4Ring, or RSRNurburgring. I chose 4 laps and a trainer which, with Apex was in the 600 euro range. subtract about 140 if you don't want a trainer.

We have no plans to lap the rental car. Now, if the weather is good, Der Stig and I may be lapping on an R1... :D
