What an awesome weekend! The car is now perfectly set up for this track :) Engine and brakes are still stock but I think 8:10 is possible with less mistakes, more experience and a bit more luck.  

 

@350Butcher @WillisRR When are you hitting the RIng?

Saw a few Z's going round but must have missed yours! 

Didn't have mine with me but did have a go in one of the rental swifts, wasn't exactly a rocketship but still great fun :teeth:

Hi

I managed to get a 2nd visit to the Nurburgring in 2017, this time to the 'circuit days' event on the 16th October. i have never driven a rear wheel drive car on the track so this was a "learning" day.

Although it was glorious weather, full sunshine (and  24deg C) all the low points of the circuit remained greasy.

My  350Z HR performed well, let down by the driver and the Pirelli P zero tyres which didn't fill me with confidence.....eventually the clutch pedal went to the floor!!

I fitted a cobra exhaust which I think will fail UK track day noise limits, but at the Nordschleife this wasn't a problem.

I found this clip of the sighting laps with me at 3min.36............
