It’s been a couple of months since we returned from this years Nurburgring 24H race and I have realised I have done nothing with my pictures. The fascination with this race started in 2007 when my good friend Perry and me found a video called MAL’S BIG GREEN HELL about a team of Australians who took a Holden to the race in 2006. Since then we have only missed the event once because it’s incredible.
This year we had a group of 6 of us heading over for the race staying in Centre Parcs just outside Kelberg it’s close enough to the track to not be a problem but you can go for a swim when your finished unlike staying in the villages around the track.
Saturday morning arrived it was damp and raining but it was still time to head over to the track get some tickets and have a walk around the grid before the start.
The cars raced into the dark the most exciting place we have found in the dark is the tourist driving entrance on the dottinger straight. You can get so close to the cars as they come past you at full speed.
Then down to the Adenau bridge for some more night-time magic.
Sunday morning soon came round and the weather had changed for the better after a lot of sausage for breakfast…
We just relaxed watching the race go by.
Towards the end of the race we headed back up to the GP circuit to watch the finish and invade the pit lane after the race had finished. As we entered the track it seemed this Audi had a problem a broken drive shaft so close to the end of the race.
Eventually the race came to an end we entered the pit lane as planned it was full of people and teams celebrating the finish.
