Hi fud, we are a little Subaru Club here in Germany www.subaru-drivers-club.de (http://www.subaru-drivers-club.de) and we are on the Nürburgring on many times in the year. On easter time we are going on the ring too. I have a 22b, so you have one for your 22b meeting on the ring smile.gif I am very happy to see another 22b on the Ring!

Stefan and Marek?

Bumped into those 2 guys at a trip last year and went for a great night out.

Easter is great but absolutely rammed as it's opening weekend isn't it?

Difficult one Andy, easter has always been traditionally busy but the guys that went over this year found the track quiet (car park rammed though)

Mid week sessions are much better for clear track.

10th November 2009, 11:28
Duncan did mention this to me first time i went over about easter but i have never had any issues with doing 15-20 laps over a weekend for some people new to it This is more than enough...

Ill get dates when they are up and put a few dates that were doing and then we can see who fancies what and when ..

stefan Keep an eye on this thread and ill try get as many over as possible..

found some pics.




We bumped into these guys on a Saturday in November 07 and promptly went out on the lash aftwerwards with about a dozen more of their likeminded friends. :D

Assuming its the same guys of course!

I'd be up for a trip next year....Is there noway we could get a list of names together and try to hire the track?.....This year I went to a speed industries track day and had at least 10 laps without seeing another car smile.gif ...not sure what would be involved in orginising this but could it maybe be done with other clubs?

there are already organised limited numbers track days available. I would suggest that these cost an absolute bloody fortune and would involve an obscene amount of money up front that would require a deep level of trust that everyone will come good.

nice idea though and 10 laps without another car sounds positively sexual :cool:

Duncan Graham
11th November 2009, 07:58
Hiring the track is a huge financial investment - circa £40k for the day. Never gonna happen - stick to pre-organised track days there or touristenfahren days.

Far better to go at quieter times of the year if you want no traffic.

I have been at times mid week where you never see another car all evening on track - simply brilliant for learning lines and for ultimate times (if you have the track knowledge) but it is actually a lot more fun when there is traffic to work through and people to play with.

You never stop learning there IMO so if you are wanting quiet track to chase a lap time without having the track knowledge it will bite you.

11th November 2009, 19:17
Dont know about any one else but credit crunch hitting me and 40k for a trck day bit much for me lol

11th November 2009, 19:45
not sure about 40k but heard 15k mentioned at the speed industries day.

There were 50 max places and we all payed 450 euro's. I think approx 35 cars turned up.

They way they worked it was you had to pre pay. I could contact Sebastian and find out the ins and outs if you wish? Let me know and I can email him.....maybe they would team up and we could tag along also??

Duncan, when would you suggest the best time to go would be so that it is quite?

11th November 2009, 21:58
Best time is in the week like duncan stated for quietness but i dont like it to quiet track day with no cars nah not for me..

As soon as the dates come out ill put the dates up and we can go from there..

Duncan is more exsperienced than me with the track and surrounding areas so be good if he got involved with this..

12th November 2009, 23:48
@ Andy
Nice to meet you here after 2 Years, i hope you and Terry are well. Hope we can see you and the other guys at the Ring. Regards from Marek to you, i speak with him about this meeting today.
@ Fud when you have the date, i will write this in the SDC forum, so i can get some people for the meeting too.

It snowed on the the first Easter 22b trip back in 2000...

22nd November 2009, 15:25

I did my first ever lap in the snow though, started out with a little drizzle and just got worse as I went round:






24th November 2009, 21:13
I thought it was a SN trip... ;)

24th November 2009, 21:57
I can't remember, a lot of the discussion about it happened in Chat on here though

I've got date stamped pictures of our cars next to each other covered in snow. At least you had a roof to keep the snow out! :D

24th November 2009, 23:19
I've never experienced the ring (other than on the playstation), but I can imagine it would be a scary place at speed in the dry.

In the wet, I can only wonder how many accidents they have.

In the snow? Yes, the 22B is a "rally car", but...

24th November 2009, 23:46
John, quite right it was 2001, don't recall any t-shirts though :confused:

Didn't you have a leak from your fuel tank on that trip that you fixed in the snow? Then there were the snapping front cycle wing stays to contend with too...

26th November 2009, 00:40
Obviously not part of the in crowd Tim. ;)

Yep, the top of the fuel tank split, so i fixed it with some chemical metal i had in the spares i carried in the passenger footwell. I'm not sure if that was the trip my clutch cable snapped too, where i drove all the way from Calais without using the clutch, not easy when going cross country through belgium/germany in a convoy. I bodged that in the car park too.

The cycle wing bracket failed in France not far from Calais, fixed that with some gaffa tape and one of your sockets as a splint if i remember correctly.

Quality cars those Westfields. ;) Then again it did see a bit more speed and load than the designers envisioned i think!

26th November 2009, 08:02
And that was before you realised you were on a low boost setting IIRC. You had it fixed when I saw you at Oulton.

22nd December 2009, 22:06
