Journey to Nurburgring Part One

by

One of the biggest Fuelfed supporters; Shahin D. took a little trip to Germany earlier this year. Here is part one of two of his journey.

In March 2010 my wife and newborn son made a trip Germany to visit family and vacation in warmer climates. It was also my brother’s 30th birthday, so I planned something special as he’s gearhead as well. My two part gift was for the two us to drive the Nurburgring. We would first take a ride in the Ring Taxi to get a feel for the lines and then each pilot a track prepared rental for a few laps.

Our first stop on our journey to the Holy Grail was the second Holy Grail; the new Porsche museum in Stuttgart. The architecture alone along with the amount of fascinating, interactive displays make for an easy 5-6 hour stroll. We must have taken a few hundred pix.

We arrived late that night at “Hotel an der Nordschleife” so we didn’t know our distance to the track. When waking up the next morning to the sound of cars threshold braking, you know it’s going to be a Fuelfed day!

When we got to the track, we staggered ourselves in line for our taxi ride. Our white M5 taxi pulls up and we jump in. To our great surprise, Sabine Schmidt greets us with a “Guten’Tag”. To put this in perspective, Sabine only made it to 6 of these public days in 2009.

I let my brother sit in the front. (I know, I know). So the main video you see was shot with an HD Camcorder from the front seat, while I shot the smaller one with a digital camera.

To be continued….
