HELMUT - Do we need this for the Spa tour? No jokes Phil!



No helmets are required for Spa tour laps.

ps. Expectation management ..... You won't be going very fast at Spa. The pace car leading you will do 70 mph maximum and if you drop back to squirt it they'll cut the session short.


.... And to add ... Every metre of the track is covered by about 100 cameras feeding big screens in race control....

Big brother is watching , you can't take any liberties .

Just sit back and take in the atmosphere of driving through la source etc thumbsup

T8 & Matt (997.1 Turbo)
askgeez & Baz (997GTS)
tordofm (997.2C4S)

Gents regarding the above ELA, Budflicker and Diverzeusy now have some assemblance of a plan. On Monday we will be doing a little Moselle tour, stop for early lunch then on to Classic Remise before getting to Oberhausen.

Question is do you want us to stop by the NBR enroute after the lunch to collect you (T8/Matt, Guy/Baz & Tordofm) or would you prefer to also join us? The other option is to meet up at Classic Remise? I'm easy with any of the 3 options



Meeting you somewhere and travelling to The Remise together would be great.

We'll be finished at The Ring by 12.30 so could meet you at your lunch stop (during or after your meal probably) or somewhere else. Dont know


Hi Terry, then we will be at the Kloster Machen:

An der Zeltinger Brücke, 54470 Bernkastel-Wehlen
http://www.brauhaus-kloster-machern.de/

If you meet us here at around 13:15, then we will be ready to go together in convey up to Classic Remise

Thanks Richard but after a morning at The Ring the prospect of driving 40 miles south to then drive 160+ north AND visit The Classic Remise is too much for an old geezer like me. Old

I can't speak for the 2 much younger chaps though. Dont know

I'm happy to meet you later on, somewhere nearer to Nurburg. If not I'll see you at Dusseldorf.

Afternoon all, it’s so close I can taste it.

Just one question though as we will be driving through France is it a must I guess it is because it states it’s a requirement by law that we invest in Reflective Jackets / Warning Triangle / Headlamp beam deflectors and so on.

I am sure I have a shell tracksuit from the 80’s buried someone and would that be enough to satisfy the reflective jacket requirement.

Sorry Paul but the jackets have to be to the European standard and must be kept inside the car. You need one for each occupant and have to wear it as soon as you get out of the car on the motorway.

Reflective triangle is a must have but you should have one in your frunk already.

I wouldn't bother with light deflectors.

You don't need beam deflectors on the newer 911's since you can change the 997 headlights' beam pattern on the car for driving on the other side. (I believe the 991 can be done via PCM but I may be wrong on that).

Looks like you're all having a fab' time (seen the FB posts), stay safe.

Just a word of warning when you're heading back towards the Calais area, the Gendarmes are really hot at the moment on the motorway as you come out of Belgium into France heading to the port/tunnel. The motorway changes speed limits from 130 - 90 - 80 - 130 and plod sit there waiting for the Brits heading home. I got caught last year and have seen them on all three occasions I've used the route this year.

Fine was €100 IIRC or they'll offer to take your car away! Very Happy
