      That's a good power-weight ratio. I am at around 215-1300Kg. For me the kicker is the 260ft lbs of WTQ. I am not sure if the tires will be able to handle it in the corners. Almost lost it tonight ****ing around on an on-ramp to the autobahn. ****ty all seasons and stock suspension=No Bueno!! I'm looking forward to meeting you as well. We go up about every other weekend in the summer and are always looking for more people to go.

      On the 14th the track will be open from 17:30-19:00. This will be the VLN version - Nordschleife + Sprintstrecke. For those of you who are looking at staying the night up there.

      So, do we have any graphic designers that can throw together a logo of sorts to make stickers or something?

      I'm flying to the UK the weekend before it (would be tempted to drive over if this meet was earlier), and have got my flight down to $650 from the East Coast on a good airline. Keep searching, there's okay/decent prices out there.

      I just did a quick search and found LAX to Brussels (BRU) which is a nice short drive to a the Ring for $907 return leaving tuesday before returning thursday afterwards. Try searching for various other places like Paris, Berlin, Cologne, Frankfurt etc. (Frankfurt is about as close as BRU but is more expensive).

      Don't forget Düsseldorf and Dortmund... There might actually be direct flights from the east coast (or maybe Detroit).

      What kind of airfare prices did you line up? How much is the nightly room rate there?

      He's coming from Austria...

      Room prices depend - probably around €70+ a night.

      Kayak shoes LAX to FRA Apr. 13-16 for $1100...

      I'm still debating... I can still get a Turkish Airlines flight from LA to Amsterdam for like $950 on 4/11 (one stop in Istanbul). Then, weekly rental from Amsterdam is like $280 with insurance, due back by 4/18, which is when the return flight would be. Then include track car rental, gas, hotels for a week... Just trying to convince myself this is a prudent financial decision.
