It's one of the most famous racecars in the Eifel. Spinning the wheels inside the tires due to too much torque :D

I remember sitting on the grand stands and after the first lap this came back with a 20s lead on the second...just mental.


Then there is the Eifelblitz


an of course Manthey (duelling with Sabine here)




Then again, since it's the Nordschleife, E30 DTM and 190 DTM surely are worth mentioning

Yes. Usually car videos with music suck but this is one beautiful exception to that rule. I wonder how many new fans BAP gained from it... :lol:

:yes:

If it weren't for that dialect it'd be much easier. Luckily I found it translated.

A Damn, Long Time Ago
(1)
A damn, long time that I took almost everything so seriously
A damn, long time that I still believed in something
And then the shock, when it all turned out so differently
Strange how the rabbit runs at times
Not at all resigned, but pretty much disillusioned
A little something I?ve understood
(2)
How people follow you, when things go well
They pat your back, how they all court you
They call themselves your friend without even blushing
And the next day they just ignore you
It?s been a while that stuff like that left me clueless
And that disappointment dragged me down
(3)
I still remember when I just dreamed about things
Of things I did not even know how to look for
And missed finding them because I was too busy searching
And what it was anyway that I wanted to find where
My head full of nothing, just the instinctive few tricks
It takes a while to understand yourself
(4)
It was a time I didn?t even have bad luck
Not even that, a time I was not even fed up
There was John Steinbeck and there stood Joseph Conrad,
Between them me ? but relatively checkmate.
It?s been a few years, but the memory is right here
It feels like only yesterday
Chorus:
A damn long time?
(5)
You ask me when I painted the last picture
If a song is all to make me feel satisfied these days
If I had arrived where I wanted to go yet
If my colors would not dry out this way?
I think I know, whether you paint it loud or paint it soft
What matters is that you paint at all
(Chorus)
A damn, long time that I visited your graveside
A damn, long time that we last talked
And that stuff got through from one to the other
So long that I almost can?t remember when
You firmly believed someone waited for you in heaven
You deserve it well that is what I said.
(Chorus)

Fun fact: Apparently now it nearly has half a million kilometers on the shell/chassis.

Race kilometers.

Let's say you have a wall with pictures of the Green Hell.
Now let's say you have a couple of shelves on said wall.
If you would place 4 or 5 die cast models of cars to match the pictures, which ones would be appropriate?
From what I personally saw, I can think of 2 right away: Porsche 911 and BMW 3-series.
Which others would you put it there?
Volkswagen Amarok under the guise that you really can bring anything out there and it will be fun.
