Thanks for the opening, D-Fence.

I didn't find the time to process my own pictures yet, so the proper review will come later. But for starters, I spent yesterday evening browsing through the picture sites of a few of the Nordschleife photographers and made a list. Here it is, untypically for me pretty much unformatted:
I hope I got everyone (even though I forgot some names, I'm sorry about that). There are more gallerys, but I had to get some sleep at some point.

And now I need to clean my car.

Just a few photos from me this ringmeet:


Awww yiss!!!




Found a pop-up headlight friend!




A pair of TVR's






Just missing one generation:




After my ring card flew out of the car during my second lap with the Mazda, a few of us decided to head back to the ring at 1am and see if we could find it. I knew it had left the building in Schwedenkreuz, so we walked a few km in the dark to get there:




Adamar found it on the right side of the track, what luck! :-D




After one wet and sideways lap on Thursday, and one and a half (We were kicked off at the second entrance because of a crash) fast and dry laps on Sunday the tires on Sumo are kind of dead... (7 year old winter tires lol)




Ultimately I did a 10:17 first try and a constantly held up traffic 10:19 lap in the MX-5 (I am sure I lost 10 to 20 seconds thanks to idiots overtaking me on the straight and slowing me down in the corners) lap and a 10:20 lap in the BMW

This year in short:

- awesome people
- awesome cars (Daimler, Lucille, CR-Z, MX-5s, M5...)
- way too many BMWs
- way too little Italian stallions. That made winning the award kinda easy, I need some competition for the next year. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge ;)
- I went on the Ring as a passenger for the first time
- I lapped my Alfa subsequently after that because Kimo & Vltros talked me into it (not that I resisted much :p)
- I hope I can make it next year again

R8 man is called Jan, btw. Really cool dude. I'll try to get him to join FG if he's active on the internetwebs.

I'll get my photos sorted tomorrow. I haven't even unpacked yet. Got home after an 11h25m drive and am just vegging out before going to bed.

None anymore...
I didn't take many pictures, just from the Oldtimer Grand Prix at Sunday, but I went on one lap on Sunday between 16:40h and 16:55h. Found two pictures already:

For info: on the racetracker-website there are links to other pictures of the same car below the current picture. Sometimes the script recognizes completely different cars as the same car, but it helps sometimes.
