Can't you pay a toll and actually drive around some/part of the Nurbruring ( can't spell )in your own car??
I am sure I have heard people say this before.

Welcome to the fourms Mat
Superb!!! :rofl:

I did drive the Ring, but not in the Laguna ;)

Had a phone call from a mate one Friday last November, asking if I fancied a little drive over the weekend.

His little drive involved, getting the 3am Sat night/Sun morning Eurostar to Calais, driving through France, Belgium and into Germany, arriving at the Ring Sunday morning about 8am, doing 15 laps between 3 of us and then heading home!!

Was back in doors about 8pm, bloody knackered after only getting a few hours sleep on the train and the drive down. :crazy:

This was our track weapon.............


A Leon Cupra R on coilovers and Revo'd (chipped) putting out 265ish bhp and easily getting to 160 on the Autobahn :devil: Only damage from the trip was a warped pair of front discs!!

Matt I have a friend with a Leon Cupra R and the revo kit..

He got a demo kit ( which lasted about 4 hours before the demo is over ) and after it finished he just had to get the real deal..

Cupra's are VERY quick but the revo upgrade makes them much much quicker - hope you enjoyed the welcome..

My boy racer days of thunder have passed and nowadays I keep a keen eye on the mpg but would love to get on a track..

Same thing happened to my Dad! He took his TT to have cruise control fitted, was offered a demo Revo, and came away £400 ish lighter than he'd planned!!

Was very impressed with the Leon! We also thrashed it to Le Mans and back last year, keeping up with a convoy of Lambo's and a Zonda for a while :cool:

My boyracer days are well and truely over too! Unfortunately most of my mates have modded, fast cars so the bugs still there!! :rolleyes: (still.... saves me spending on fast cars! just blag a go in theirs ;) )

The day at the Ring was my first track day and was like being thrown in at the deep end!! Loved every second though and we're planning on going again this year :d

Cheers for the welcome! Made me chuckle :rofl:
