Doing a 5-day road trip to 5 different European countries, taking in the Nurburgring yesterday.

Fantastic place, although in a 118D I was hardly quick 😂

I went there a few years back now, just such a bizarre place that you have to go at least once in your lifetime. 

Would never do it on a bike though, fuck that.

To be honest I'd have preferred to have been on the bike, or at least in a quicker car. Glad to tick it off the bucket list 👍🏼

Yeah speed and fun-wise yes, but I wouldn't want to be on a bike with that many random nobends everywhere. Never minding the crashes and oil dumped everywhere, it's not knowing whether to expect a race car or a bus when you go around a corner.

We were on about driving to Amsterdam, next year. We may do a bit of a tour. What's the crack with the Ring these days,  Just turn up and pay?

Only on touristenfahrten days, a lot of the time it's private events so don't just turn up and hope for the best. Laps ain't cheap these days though.

We have just done...

Dunkirk -> Ghent -> Antwerp -> Utrecht -> Amsterdam -> Cologne -> Bonn -> Nurburgring -> Trier -> Luxembourg City -> Reims/Champagne.

Here for one night celebrating our wedding anniversary where the real fizz comes from!

Lap of the Ring was €25. Had a calendar of public opening times to go from. Highly recommend it.

Are you going to crash and die?

Possibly, but not without awesome GoPro footage of it.

Oh good man. Everyone knows that if you're gonna crash, you should at least do the decent thing and get it on camera.

Yeah it's like considerate crashing, those that crash without letting everybody see their misfortune are just assholes.
