  1. Count me in as usual for the Ring - pretty much any date..... :D
  2. Uploaded a couple of pics for you all courtesy of Gord, Lee. Jason and Baz.... Some serious quality here chaps just to wet your appetite.... Check out the group piccie at TTE, Sabine giving us a cheeky grin, the Bikers with some sparks flying and the battered Porsche which came off at the Ring on Friday....
  3. Having a fantastic few days! TTE and the F1 tour was superb.... The night out in Koln was hilarious!!! The Nurburgring was quite amazing - NOTHING can describe the circuit - it was mind blowing. I am ecstatic I can say I´ve been there and done it. Everyone got round safely - lots of circuit closures due to some serious crashes - and we have nearly 2gb of pics!!!! Plus - Over 5 hours of video footage to edit! I had a personal target of beating 12 minutes which I achieved today (my second day at the ring) - so very, very happy! Will try and upload a few pics shortly - but no doubt plenty of posts to come from the boys once we return home tomorrow.... Those of you who have missed out this year have been missed - you must come along next year!!! Zee. :D
  4. Yes, but the're at work iirc, I think I have about 4, not sure if I can get them (or where they are!) Might have a look tomorrow if I remember. :) How many do we need, I have 6 here. Someone will need to bring a couple (3 off) plug adapters to charge them once we get over there. Gord and I will be bringing 4 walkie talkies and I have a heap of AA and AAA batteries too.
  5. I have everything except the bulb defelctors.

JUST THOSE GOING PLEASE. This thread needs to be kept clean. so no rubbish else it will be deleted. DATE now confirmed: Weds 12th to Sun 16th APRIL Plan of action will be ferry over on Day 1 (Dover to Calais as it's cheap), then drive to Koln. Stay at the Ibis near TTE and have a tour of their entire famous facilities on Day 2 followed by a night out. Day 3 will be a drive to the Nurburgring for the entire day, doing a few laps if you want, and meeting the TOC crowd before returning to Koln in the evening. Day 4 at the Nurburgring again or drive home. It's not overly expensive, and ask any of those who have been over with me and Mat in the last 3 years, it's a fantatstic trip! COSTS: - Petrol (Around 3/4 tanks) - Ferry Dover to Calais (approximately £70 for 1 car and up to 4 passengers return) - 4 nights at the Ibis in Koln (50 to 60 Euros per night) - Track costs are 56 Euros for 4 laps and 16 Euros for 1 lap - Spending money Remember, this is a HUGE opportunity to visit the fantastic TTE plant, meet some of the guys, see some VERY special cars and have a go round the legendary Nurburgring! And the reason we are going on a Wednesday is so that we can go round TTE on Thursday (so they will actually be there!).

  13. OK - I have confirmation that dates are good for Friedel. :D I will be starting a new thread this weekend with next steps. This will include the details around bookings, times, requirements, what you need to bring etc. Keep your eyes peeled as we'll need to move quite quickly to get the bookings done.
  14. I have recieved no further payments. I will leave this open for another 3 weeks chaps.
  15. Just waiting for Friedel to confirm he is OK with the Thursday and I will start to firm up plans...
  16. Very Nice Owen.. Look like Volk/Rays replicas? Do you know how much they weigh?
  17. I'd say washer fluid - maybe the car is on a slant and it's leaking from the engine bay and running down the underside of the car?
  18. Is this your drug dealing side line Bazza....?
  19. So majority have already gone for Option one. We will be leaving Wednesday from Dover to Clais. Drive to TTE. Visit them Thursday. Nurburgring Friday (and Saturday for those who want too). Home Saturday or Sunday. I'll start to take payments for the ferry and hotels soonish. Ken - yes we'll probably meet you on Friday. :)
  20. The video is FINALLY uploaded!!! (My fault for the delay.... ) Clicky here and enjoy...
  21. Oops. Looks like Friday is a bank holiday in Germany too!!! Friedel has just emailed me to say no one will be there!!! So - options are we go a day earlier (ie. travel Weds) so we can go to TTE Thursday, Nurburgring Friday (it will be quieter too) and home Sat/Sun. Or miss out TTE. Or change dates all together. Thoughts please? I opt for the first choice by the way...
  22. I have one - and I'm sure a few others too. You are welcome to borrow mine! :)
  23. That would be great Soto! Could you send me your email address please? I believe the majority will be going from Dover to Calais. I'll look into ferry costs next week. Last time Barrie and I looked, they were around £70. Great - I'll be in touch. I'll have my camera and car mounts. :)
