Well, more like yesterday...

Sunrise found me blasting down another autobahn
http://homepage.mac.com/rost12/random/n24_12.jpg

This time heading north to catch the beginning of Nürburgring 24 race! It was a last minute decision, so I couldn't stay up there for the whole 24 hours... but still, if this isn't a good enough reason to do 1,100kms of driving in one day, I don't know what is.

I've got about 300 shots of various cars and in various degrees of focus, but they're all sadly from the same corner. My idea to get to a different corner went south after I noticed how packed everything was in and around the track. So after I found myself a nice spot from where I could take some shots without the stupid fence in my way, I stayed put. Pro tips for next year: 1) lense with IS stabilizer 2) a fking chair 3) warm clothes 4) case of beer.

Audi was out in full force with a nice area setup in the paddock and RS4s and RS6s being used as safety cars:

Couple Porsche RS Spyders did a few laps to keep us entertained:

Maybe some of it is, but what I saw around me were just random messages, aka "I love Luci", "Viper blows" etc.

This one is "30 Zone", something you'd see on the road coming to a school zone:

This one I didn't even notice till after I got home, CSI-like outline of a dead guy:

Yup, V8 badge. Saw it on the way home, on a trailer being towed by a very funky coloured E34 wagon :0 No photos, sadly.
