HA! The red car #123 (3rd from the bottom) is an "Opel Manta" which was the "poor man's Corvette" in Germany.
That was my first car (mine was white and got a whupping 60 hp out of 1.2L displacement - and probably 40+ mpg)

Oh sweet memories of yonder

On second thought, now I am driving the "poor man's Porsche"

Well spotted Chris,
The guy in the Manta had driven it to the ring on slicks and with something that sounded a bit meaner then a 1.2

My wife text our son back in the UK while we were waiting to go onto the track to see if he could see us, and there we are behind the fast & furious 350z.

More stuff that I saw in the Nurburgring carpark this year! (2010)


This Weismann was amazing and sounded like a Stuka dive bomber!
