    IMG_2485.JPG IMG_2479.JPG So far, great trip. Visited the Mercedes Museum in Stuttgart Saturday. Couldn't sleep on the plane so had my own 24HR challenge. Toured Affalterbach yesterday. Awesome to see where the GT3s and other AMGs are built. Drove the GP at Nurburgring this morning in the GT R! Unfortunately, it was raining all morning so slippery and slow :mad: Drove to Liege this afternoon and will be at SPA tomorrow!!!!

    That weather is our regular welcome for anyone coming across the yuuuuge pond lol.
    Which is also the reason i live in the part that has the most hours of sun throughout the year. (really helps when you spend most of that time working in dim engine rooms)

    You must be having a great time tho, I'd give a certain body part to be sitting next to that man.

    Do keep us posted!

    Berndt was awesome, as were all the instructors! Such an incredible experience :D SPA was amazing, Drove in the parade from the track into town. So fun, crowds cheering! 222 kmph down the Autobagn yesterday in their GTS. And it looks like I need to resign from my current job for a new position at SPA as the . . . (To be continued)

    Just wanted to let you know that I showed your post to Berndt and he was highly amused, well, as much as a German can be ;) But it is funny, he had been kind of stand offish and after I showed him the post, he came and ate lunch with us and started telling all kinds of stories. So, that was very cool!!!!

    Well, standing between Roland Rehfeld and Berndt Schneider should put a big smile on any racing fan's face. To have them as your instructors, even better :D It was an amazing experience!!!! And Roland is the most fun ever, so cool, kept me laughing with all his stories about ADA students. He also told me I could put the car in Race Mode when we were driving through Germany and Belgium (something you are not permitted to do at most ADA events even on the track since it turns off traction control). And best of all he told me he would recommend me for Masters, which is driving the GT3 car. So Roland is my BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBFF :cool:

    Please be merciful with the photoshopping, I posted these pictures trusting your discretion;)

    I guess he didn't take the offer lol.

    Your adventure keeps getting better and better, if for whatever reason you have to skip a day, i'd gladly keep your seat warm (which is nothing like Duke he'd prolly sniff the filling out of the driver seat)

    Well, I'm back and have to say it was just amazing. Making plans to go again next year and possibly drive the whole Nordscheife. They have an Advanced course there for two days, so I am going to try to make that but have to wait all the way until July :(
