  • Video's from the weekend at the Nürburgring

    I still have a few to shrink and upload. One to start.

    Considering that the combined age of drivers and cars is 202 years, it still looks pretty good IMHO :healthyjake:

                  Hi Uwe.

                  I always wanted to know how discipline was enforced on that track. It looks like everyone is courteous and doesn't do silly things. Nonetheless, you mentioned you were "told off" (which I don't understand the meaning but guess you were warned). So, please explain how things are done and what you did wrong. Did you pass in a corner, or did you not allow enough room between you and another driver/rider?

                  TIA

                    German road laws apply. Overtaking only on the left. I overtook on the right.....
                    I am not quite sure if he was more angry about the fact that I overtook him on the right, or the fact how easy I overtook him. (...as he is an driving instructor)
                    Don't get me wrong, I would never overtake on the right if there wasn't more than enough room and everybody is save. Our lines didn't even cross each others, to me that says a lot. I didn't even change the line I usualy take through this bend, he was so far out that I was concerned he will leave the tarmac with at least 2 wheels and my car will be shot blasted (again!)
                    That bend is anyway a well know place for people to run out of road.
                    Nevertheless, I have overtaken on the right and that is wrong. Regardless what crap people in front are driving. I will not do this again.

                    BTW they have a lot oc CCTV cameras round the track and some marshalls on bikes.

                      That's good to know: so, only passing on the left, just as on a regular road. That makes things simpler to understand, simpler than passing off line, while slow cars stays on line. I suppose that, of course, slower vehicles move over to allow faster cars to pass and that is is strictly enforced.

                      A common problem with many "advanced" drivers at drivers schools, is guys with fast cars but not much technique. 2002s and e30 M3s are on their bumpers in every corner, but they manage to get away by pressing the gaz, out of the corner, allowing to create some distance, but only until the next corner, where more nimble cars must slow down. I guess this is also a common problem on the Ring.

                        That's actually even worse on the Ring. There are too many bends and shorts straights. Even with much more horses you will not escape that much if you not know your way round the bends.

                        Track knowledge is the most important thing on the Ring. It's really hard to imagine if you haven't been there yourself. The Ring is not comparable with a "curcuit" type of race track.
