Would love to visit for the 24 HR race and especially to see the R8 LMS car doing the rounds!

We saw the BMW test centre too, saw an absolutely insane vehicle in there, check out this picture....

Also the other cool experience was the simulators'... really impressed by the sensation of them!

The whole time we were there I saw only 3 other R8’s of any type (Mine was the only V8). While talking to various people there such as instructors, and people at the hire company there isn’t a massively positive attitude towards R8’s – and actually ringers are not that positive towards Audi in general. With the R8’s, quite a few people have commented on its handling saying it has severe shortcomings and is not an ideal ring car. Porsche has clearly won out there: the stock 911 GT3 RS seems to be THE ring car, I must have seen over a hundred of them there in the few days.
Yep the Porsche 911 GT3 and GT3 RS are as common as mud at the Ring! Second most common car is the BMW M3 (E46 and E92).

The taxi lap was in Friedhelm’s R8 GT and so fun.
Audi R8 GT Ringtaxi :eek:

That looks awesome!
