6:30 am breakfast and 7:00 am departure from Gosnay....



.....let us get to Reims before 9 am.....





.....and so allow us the joy of dashing across France, on dual carriage way and flowing old Roman Roads, in order to traverse the legendary D430.









And be in Basel for an early evening beer and meal in a traditional Swiss restaraunt.

And that was just the warm up before the main Black Forest run tomorrow.

See y’all at Oberhausen thumbsup

That is an amazing area for great driving. I think one of my all time favourite stretches of tarmac is the climb from Cernay on the D431 up to the D430 thumbsup

Really can't wait to be back there in a couple of weeks when we've got 2 nights in the area on our way from the Historic Monaco GP to the Spa Classic Dance Tap

Just rolled in from driving back from Dinslaken.

Car's a bit dirty - yours truly has just had a nice hot shower and ready for some grub. Then get the old girl washed off ready for work tomorrow... Thumb

Had a superb few days hooning round France and Germany with the S.H.i.T.S. crew - just bloody marvelous.

One of the highlites for me was the visit to Kaege; seeing what they do to a donor 993 and stripping out over 300kgs of weight to produce some absolutely stunning cars:

[img]180501b by Mike O, on Flickr[/img]

All of the panels on this car (except the doors) are carbon fiber; the quality of the paint was excellent and the attention to detail was immense.

Need a 993 in my life.... Surprised

Our first stop worthy of a picture was at Cochem (329 miles from Calais) and well justified the 60 extra miles it added onto our journey to Nurburg - not least because those extra miles were 'cross-country' and great fun.

If you thought that todorfm had pulled up and parked a bit close to my back end ............. you'd be right. Surprised



After his initial "I knew the length of my car" declaration he later admitted that he hadn't fully taken into account the amount that a 997 number plate plinth actually extends beyond the PU. Very Happy

There were no worries on that score. The place was packed with Sunday afternoon local tourists so we parked 'naughtily' across the top of a boat launch ramp for as long as it took to get pictures with the castle as a back-drop. We never actually went more than 20 yards away from our cars. Wink

Thanks to everyone for a great trip and great company. It was good to get some time in the car as well, made even more fun by a few stints with other 911's in view.

I'm not one for too many photos but did get a few;

The view from my hotel room in Nurburg;



Views from the top of the castle;





Here's one you don't get the chance to take everyday;



Question Question Question

An insane piece of pig for lunch with Richard, Paul and Trevor;



And finally the star of the show for my trip;





Funniest thing overheard at the show was someone who won't be named filming on his phone explaining that he was filming Batman and was trying to get some footage of his cape from the rear, just as Batman was walking alongside Harley Quinn
