If you think that look is bad... I actually had to run off and hide behind Porkee's car. Ze German BananaPerv came looking for me so Porkee jumped in and stared moving back prompting me to commando crawl along beside him while trying to swear quietly enough so not to give the game away.

That dude was a nutjob (Ze German, not Porkee).

Guys

just found this amongst a load of rubbish i'd accumulated on my desk.

When i was at Dinskalen last month, i asked the guy behind the desk at the Tryp if he knew of any power wash places near to the hotel; he was a bit suprised as he said that everywhere he knew of had a rotary brush car wash.

I left it and went back to the room - I then got a call from him to say that they'd done some searching round and found some nearby places.

Knowing that one or two of you are about ***** about keeping your cars spick and spam, I thought that you might appreciate this for the future:

Thank me later! Thumb Grin

Or you just could have gone around the corner to the Shell garage and filled up with 100 octane as well as get a spruce up!

The beast was very dirty. It stressed me out a little. Hope it will be clean for Beaulieu !

Maybe we all needed a clean my car kit like Khush. ?

Has it really been a week since I loaded the car , ready for my third Dinslaken trip !

Day 1
Terry (and son Matt), Marc , myself (and father Baz) met Sunday morning and set the sat navs for Cochem. Weather was ok, and made good progress . Had a lovely drive once we got off the motorways , found some great roads.

https://imgur.com/gallery/slqzJ2U

Cochem on the banks of mosel river is stunning . Glad to have finally made it , after getting lost on previous trip (don't ask Duh ) .

Took some photos, and headed for Nurburg on the "Twisties", the combined noise of two n/a 997s with PSE and X pipes Grin

https://youtu.be/CqKNvOKWfEw

Arrived at the Dorint hotel, via a quick stop at Nordschleife paddock (more on that later). The hotel car park was extra special , with several brand new 991s including GT3 tourings. Porsche were hosting the GT3 RS press launch , so these were "courtesy cars" for using on GP track.

Didn't have much time , as we had a 730pm table booked at the famous Pistenklaus to meet "Budflicker" Peter for dinner and few beers..

Very atmospheric place, with motoring paraphernalia adorning walls and ceiling. Can't be many restaurants with so few women in Floor hundreds of men talking cars and drinking beer, most eating the Argentinian steak on hot stone.
Back to Dorint for a nightcap(s) in the racetrack inspired "Cockpit" bar.,

reasonable time to bed as The Ring awaited early next day...

Day 2 AM

https://imgur.com/gallery/aHgswg8

At breakfast before 8am, woke to a grey overcast day, with rain overnight. Checked forecast, more rain due.... Surprised

We checked out, and drove to ring taxi office , where we had pre-booked a Renault Clio "trophy". Signed the very scary disclaimer, "don't break ze car ... It is almost new jah!! Ze excess is ten thousand euros...." Hand

The paddock car park is just amazing , Porsches, Ferraris, McLaren's , M BMWs and AMG Mercedes of every flavor and budget.
Was amusing to see a couple drive through in a one series with 2 kids in child seats behind !?

Matt, Marc and myself had 2 laps each , which we spread out across the morning. I'm unashamed to say I drove my first lap SO slowly as I just wanted to get one lap under my belt.

Track is much narrower than I expected, significant changes in elevation , and it was not only damp and cold , but huge amounts of slippery pollen on track. We were told to try and stay off racing line and keep to middle, but with faster cars hammering up inside, and grass and high kerbs on right... Was a little stressful

Safety negotiated the 21km, 70+ corners and did break 200 km/hon home straight Grin what a buzz !! We all agreed the Clio was a good car, paddle shift, roll cage, very little sound insulation, and revved to limiter and popped and backfired on downshifts. In hindsight I found driving an unfamiliar car more of a challenge than the track ... left hooker , front wheel drive etc quite different to 911. Question

I then had the pleasure of a pax lap with Sundeep in his 993. Crash helmet on, hold on tight !!!! Wow , to go round with someone who knows the track well, and has driving talent was a different ball game. Hard on the throttle , dab on the brakes, turn in... Apex to exit , floor it ...(and repeat... A lot! ) worship could feel how balanced 911 is, and air-cooled engine note at high revs was a delight. Didn't feel scared once, just grinning beneath my crash helmet

Went out for my 2nd lap, didn't feel as nervous , and car didn't feel quite as "under steery" as before . Couldn't even tell you how long it took, just soaked up the atmosphere. Returned car in one piece , much to all our relief !
Timed perfectly as there was a crash and circuit closed.

Day 2 PM

after meeting up with ELA,Budflicker and Diverzusy at Adenau... We agreed to convoy to classic remise in Dusseldorf.

We pulled out of car park, and I was last out, and got stuck behind traffic puh

Wouldn't be a roadtrip without getting split up ! The others were out of sight, and I chased hard with a few banzai overtakes, but to no avail. Sods law our routes diverged, and I had a solo hour oop north.

As I got near Dusseldorf I spotted a few familiar cars queuing in the roadworks... I had found the "S H I T S" gang Grin
So had a few friends to convoy in for last few miles Thumb
(Arriving ahead of Terry and rest of my lot).

The remise is always good. Hard to beat the volume of quality cars under one roof anywhere I expect. Third time there , so just a quick walk around to look for any extra special gems.

Good to get up close to a brand new turbo s “exclusive” in lairy gold ...

https://imgur.com/gallery/4sYNUS6



to be continued


So.... Leave Remise mob handed. The usual chaos leaving Dusseldorf... Too many junctions , short traffic lights ... So bit of a lottery how many/who you convoy back with Floor


The Tryp must be the most confusing hotel to find , I mean FFS, I've been there twice before Razz

Spotted mr pub in a shell garage , so assumed he knew... No....
So we washed our filthy cars instead


The initial meet at the Tryp is probably the best part of this annual porky soiree,. All the various groups converging.... Catching up with 911uk mates thumbsup

Park , check in, get a beer (s), don't bother changing ...(just me ?)...then after far too many..... Stagger to the Pagoda....for the now obligatory Chinese buffet. Cheap and VERY cheerful

Now at this point ... Any normal person that knows they have a long day/ drive the next day would go to bed ..... No... Guy goes for a beer in nearby bar, then sits up with Dr Jim & Phil till 2am
Bandit

Tuesday..... Feeling a little jaded...got my shiz together to check out and set off for the show....

I did think it was you Paul but as I came off the junction (1) I only got a glimpse of the driver. I was in a race blue Skoda Octavia estate you followed me for a few miles. M25 was screwed so I came off at the M40 to Heathrow.

Your driving was still slower than mine.

On that stretch from Beaconsfield to the M25? Hope you got where you were heading without too much headache after? Thumb

If you were in front and going faster than me I’d likely not pay you too much attention. It’s the blue Skoda Octavia estates coming into my rear view mirror that are faster than me that I usually notice - in a panic! Surprised Cop

Next time give me a bye

There's 2 reports on the Porschefreunde event in this months (July) PCGB 'Porsche Post' magazine.

One is from a couple in the Dorset Region but by far the best is a really good write up of the via-Spa trip from our very own 'Shewie' in the Channel Islands. It includes a picture of his car with a 911uk Porschefreunde 2018 sticker.

Nice one Paul thumbsup
