Nurburgring photos

Now I know a lot won't want to post photos from the Nurburgring for various reasons however I thought it might be of interest to some. Feel free to post your favourite photos of your cars at the famous green hell. Having been there several times I would recommend it to anyone who is mad about cars!

Here are some of my favourites from over the years

What's the best car you've driven around there Nick from those that you have driven?

I'm gonna guess the RS was the best but I know how much you love your ST's.

Not sure if still available but few times we’ve driven over to Disney Paris we went over by Chunnel. Could use Tesco Clubcard Vouchers with some double or triple up in value. Cost £50 odd in cash each time for return trip which I thought was decent. I always thought that’s the way I’d do it with a stopover on the way.

Funny you should say about a trip in September I am actually planning on going. Let me know if you want to come along. We are always open to have more people come! Have tried to arrange trips on other forums in the past but people always just say they're interested until it actually comes to paying!

We have been via various ways in the past. Our personal favourite and how we go each time now is to go via the Harwich to Holland overnight ferry. We are all within a 30minute drive of Harwich and then it is only a few hours to Nurburg from the Dutch ferry terminal. Yes the ferry costs a bit more but the saving in fuel normally counteracts that, unless you have a car that can do decent MPG

Plus it is always a good social to meet and greet over a few beers on the ferry

Let me know if you're interested!

It would have to be the Civic followed by the Megane. The Civic I took in October last year and it was honestly different level. I am not a fast track driver but even that car made me look half decent. Couple that with it doing 172mph on the Autobahn it is honestly the best car I have ever owned!

There are professional photographers stationed around the track. You just have to find the Nurburgring tourist photo website and then find your car in amongst the other thousands. They cost between 6 and 10 euros per photo usually

Yeah that would work, our plan as it stands is to get the Friday overnight ferry 10th. Then get the ferry back either on the Tuesday or Wednesday after. So effectively it's Saturday the 11th to Wednesday the 15th. Some of our lot probably won't stay for that length of time but on the Tuesday... Spa have public trackday sessions. It is only an hour and a bit from the Ring. Also there is a public session at the GP circuit at the Nurburgring that same evening. There is only a handful of days a year where these are available hence us wanting to stay until the Wednesday.

Let me know what you think
