Oh I totally understand that arrangement. But there's plenty of track to reach without having to stay overnight.

I wanted a V8 and the decision was E92 M3 or some muscle car. I went with the Boss because I wanted a car that does well on track from the start. I was looking for a Camaro 1LE as well but they are close to impossible to find here and most of them are fakes.
In retrospect, an M3 might have been the smarter decision because it is far easier to get parts for them but the sound from the Boss' sidepipes is just to awesome to pass.

I know RSR from when Ron Simons started renting out cars at the Ring I believe. He started with rather rusty but also rather fast Alfa 75s. I saw they have a whole office at Spa when we went to Spa two years ago.

Anyhow, have fun at all track events you go to this year. If you need to be hooked up to someone for track days or courses to obtain a german DMSB level A race drivers license, just let me know.

First track video. Spa Francorchapms in my M2. It's a fast F1 circuit in Belgium. Awesome day overall, even though temps were in the 30s.

Nice vid! I really hope I get the chance to drive there with my Boss this year.
Did you enjoy your day? Looks like rain was about to come in.

Spa was really impressive to me.

Thanks man! Yeah, itís a very impressive track. Just how I like it, fast and flowing. Trying to stay flat through LaRouge is a hell of a ride, and double downhill left handed in the other side of the track is one of my favorite curves on any track so far.

I did 3:02.1 and I can still find 2-3s with more practice Iím sure. Hope you get a chance to take your Boss! Lots of long straights to stretch out itís legs.

Another video this time from Hockenheimring. Lots of traffic and very expensive cars. Still fun, but had to look out a lot more

I checked the videos I made in Spa, my lap time was about 3:25 in my E46 M3. I did some faster laps later but I doubt I got any faster than maybe 3:15.

It was fun though. I like it best when you got some participants of the same skill and speed you can battle with without having to drive faster than you actually should...

I've never been to Hockenheim yet.

Yes, I like that too. Actually I like following a slightly faster driver more. I learn each time and get better myself.

I was consistent at Spa when there was no traffic. 3:10 or so with traffic, and I got 2 laps in 3:02 range with this being the fastest. I was more consistent at Hockenheimring, but there was a lot of traffic and my best time there was only a 2:08.7.
