I am back from a memorable weekend - we were a total of 7 friends from my Mercedes Club with one Clk 55 amg, one C63 Amg Kleeman, one S600 Brabus (mine), one Slk 55 amg, one Sl65 amg Black series, one E500 Hammer, and one C63 AMG sport Package.

The Green Hell is a very hard track-road course. Many car accidents from drivers who think they can handle the track and the car overtakes them. Too much confidence and lunacy made us see many fatal accidents especially from motorcyclist with at least 2 deaths over the course of the weekend. Many crashes happens from folks who think they can master the ring in less than a weekend...it takes many many hours behind the wheel and learning each turns and only after 100 or so runs you can start learning this track.

Here are the pics:

Welcome you are in heaver .... or hell



Starting with the BENZ:







































The marvels:




























































Some other kind of sheet metals:










On the autobahn with my buddy's E500:





and a last one in the carousel at 100km/h the car is so grounded....



I also a video with the fastest lap that was achieve with the big Brabus and 4 passenger and full luggage in the trunk in 9min37 sec which was faster than some GT3 RS that some blokes were driving like wuss !

Looks like a blast! How far of a drive is it from your place in Paris to the ring?

Poster, I mean poster. What have I done?

It's roughly a 5 hr drive, 4 good hrs till Luxembourg at 130km/h and a quick stop for the cheapest gas in Europe then less than 1hr to the ring at V max which was 260 chrono but 280 for me...I love unlimited speed and the car drives the way it should always have !

We are going back in April, and I am renting a Gt3 RS for the weekend with 2 other buddies of mine.

I hate you Don. I still think you need an assistant :D

I miss die Deutschland! The Nurburgring is automotive heaven. All the cars that you get to see there are amazing, I will hopefully get to go there again next year.

That's a nice lap time for so little experience on that track, man.

We're gonna be there next week on vacation, so gonna try to hit an evening session. Will be in a rental car with my dad in the car, so will have to take it very slow, but I don't care, never been on the Ring.

I'm a little worried about being rear-ended by some banker in a 997 Turbo though. Any tips for me? Stay on line I guess?
