Nurburg Old Timer 2015

Not the best of weather for my second trip to Nurburg in as many months but at least the rain stopped after 20mins…

On a slightly larger scale than Spa Classic but not as big as Silverstone Classic Nurburg had some good points. Track-side you could get close to the action on turn 1 and 2 of the old GP track. The pit lane is really wide with plenty of access, plus it has a loud siren when a car enters the pit-lane to give you heads up before you either get flattened or you get a Marshall shouting at you…

The first corner made for some flames on a couple of cars … I would give you what class of car and race series but as I picked up a German programme I’ve no idea now!!!

Plenty of interesting cars and things to see…

Including an appearance by the famous Kermit in a GT40…

Also took a rare photo of myself…sporting the ear defenders, which have saved my hearing over the last few months from group c and F1 cars. But listening to German radio stations was interesting, mixed in with very random British songs made for a strange soundtrack!

Always enjoy the F1 Master Series and good to see this one gave it a bit of stick round the corner getting the back end out…

Whilst at Le-Man24 there was a Ferrari transporter but this one above was a different one…. really good.

For me the Marlboro, Benetton and John Player Special F1 livery are the ones from my childhood that I can remember and great to see out on track…

You can see a wider selection in my gallery here.

Until next time…
