Instead of adding to the seven pages that are on the original thread, here are some of my photos from this weekend just gone.

Great weather on the Sunday, perfect for some fast laps. Just a shame
there were so many crashes (and one death [:(] out there. The bikers
blamed the cars and the cars blamed the bikers.

Enjoy the pics though!

Thanks Peter!

Sorry, all the photos are lumped into one.

I'd recommend the trip to anyone. It's a mind blowing experience and is
a car lovers paradise. Hearing that Carrera GT take off was akin to
Formula 1!

Just take it easy on the track and don't go all out straight away. It's
very tricky and easy to be caught unawares if you're not familiar with
it. Make sure you do lots of spectating from around it to watch what
lines the pro's take through the more complicated sections.

The V6 clio on there also suffered some front end damage by the end of the weekend. Looked like he'd kissed the armco.

I've got 150 photos in all but i'll try and upload as many as I can. Feel free to post your favourites up guys!

Not sure how the death happened exactly. That was still under
speculation on saturday night but either an old Sunbeam/Horizon sort of
car hit a biker and ran over him or the biker fell off and went under
the car.

Either way he broke his neck. German biker and Geman driver apparently.

Some bikers who were staying at the hotel the guys stayed helped get
him out from the car too. they were pretty distraught obviously.

There were insane amounts of crashes too, Lotus', Exiges, a skyline,
bikes everywhere, an E46 M3 completely totalled etc. Even the ring taxi
shunted a British Elise off the track and destroyed it!

You should have come along! Only a short drive for you [:D]

That guy in the 205 was lucky, everyone managed to brake and swerve in time.

There was also a couple of maroon 306 gti6's going around. One was
stripped out and went like the clappers. Awesome driving and a hell of
a quick car.

This one:

Hi, I'm Gary, Claire's (Golfgirl) other half - good to see a few of you out there last weekend, we had a great time in the R!

On previous trips Claire hasn't been able to stomach many passenger
laps, but she did quite a few with me over the weekend, which helped
her learn the track, and was able to keep an eye on how I was using her
car..lol!! :))

Sneaky lap videoed Monday afternoon at the 'ring.

Claire's R32 'rainmeistercraft'.


8:35ish lap in Pete's maroon 306 GTI-6 with white sunstrip.....he's a nutter.
