To be honest Pete, even when they do it's likely to change when you get there.

It's run very strangely, and can be very frustrating when trying to plan a holiday for 10 people. I do this each year, and just advise that we should get on track at some point, but it's always great fun, plenty to do round there also.

Agreed, getting laps in is just one part of the trip for me! there is always plenty to do and usually some racing on to watch.

the VLN race 4 is on the weekend we are there which should be interesting to watch again!

Might well go around august with the uni motorclub. Not sure which car that would be in, last time I drove there and back in the westfield, but I am five years wiser now at the grand age of 28!

They often change on the day so don't take them as gospel [emoji106]

They're generally pretty accurate. I'm off to the Green Hell on the 9th July for 4 nights. Can't wait :)

You need to visit Pinocchio pizzeria, great food, dirt cheap, and order a 3ltr beer, it's worth it just for the comedy value

Had a run back, and totally took advantage of the AUTOBAHN's, sat at this for almost 2 minutes

Felt like piloting a jet plane, total trip mileage was 978.9 miles [emoji106]

My 1st lap of the trip so was still feeling my way around, but unfortunately (or fortunately I guess) the weather then got extremely hot so any chance of a fast lap was gone.

This video was a fun but busy lap, poor tyres were squealing all over the place

I've just been watching your vids on youtube avalaugh nice driving! it's a shame I missed you by a couple of weeks,would be good to do some laps with another 330, were about the same btg times Aswell.

Ive just got back on Friday what a awesome week! I took the missus and kids along this time,as a change of plans meant I had to cancel my trip in September. We stayed at the centre parks eifel which is about 15 mins drive away from nurburg. The park is perfect for kids and familys I would recommend it to anyone thinking of taking the family on a ring trip.

I managed to get my first laps in on Sunday evening after rad am ring had finished. But straight away on the first lap yellow lights from adenau forest all the way to brunnchen! And then track closed for 20 mins. Some unlucky guy in a uk scooby had broken down at brunnchen 2. This is my 3rd lap of the night 

after that the track had closed for the night. But still buzzing from my laps I decided to take a slight detour on the way home.

Monday night and back out for some more laps,this is my quickest so far on the nordschleife 

im starting to get which way it goes now just don't want to become a member of the bongard club https://m.facebook.com/TheBongardClub/  Hopefully will get to do a track day their soon and get some tuition to see where I can improve. 

Tuesday night gp track time!                           I've always wanted to have a go on the gp track,but it's never been open when I've been their before. It's seems it's a bit of a marmite track,when you speak to people about it but I really enjoyed it on their. Hopefully will get to do the full vln layout one day. Anyway enough rambling on,here's my video of how not to drive,the gp track with some nice drifts from a new focus rs and e46 m3
