    Do you reckon you can beat Sabine Schmitz time in the Tranny in your Burstner ?

    Enjoy it a lot. I guess a masochistic pleasure, 90% pure fear 10% adrenaline buzz.

    What must it have been like in the days of Fangio, loads of horse power, but no brakes or grip.

    That Brian would be such a good idea for a meet, a couple of laps in your motorhome, we could have the first ever motorhomefun race. Im off to get mine chipped now:BigGrin:

    I'd like a lap or two on my bike but they'd be very slow laps, there is no way you can turn up and thrash it round that place unless you have a serious death wish. Trouble is, now, with MH, bike is at home and I don't want the hassle of a trailer.

    A lap or two in a good car would be even better, at least you probably get to walk away from that.

    I did a lap in 22minutes 11 seconds in a 1993 Hymer S700 non-turbo. It was great fun. We were doing the Mosel at the time and just popped up for the day.

    Hi Kickstart,

    I'm going on the 23rd September, got two sessions booked on 25th & 26th.

    I won't be putting the RV round though, I'm trailering the race car.:BigGrin:

    Not sure where I will park the RV, somewhere close I hope.
