well, the reason the track is awesome is because it's the old nuerburgring in germany. 14miles or so of former GP glory. the place that saw fangio, moss, ickx, stewart, hill, and lauda. the last on the list actually crashed in a most spectacular way there and got half of his body burned, but miraculously survived. now the track is opened to the public for 7euros i think and you can take your car or bike on there and let it rip. of course you have rules and such but whatever. when one goes to a racing event in germany, one can see a sticker of a squigly line on the back of many spectators cars and one wonders what the hell is this.... it's the 'ring. i have yet to go there, but one day i will. i dont have the skills to eat that lotus (or replica?) on a bike but i think i have the driving skills to take that R1. but that would be either with pace notes or knowing the track like the back of my hand. i think a stock porsche GT1 with Hankook tires still hold the record for the loop, but maybe Gilles Panizzi with the 206WRC might have broken that a few years back, or maybe he had some traffic.... ah, you search it.
