    I'm only teasing.
    Life is always throwing curved balls at us. Trying to fit everything in is often a struggle.
    It's good to see you've got a new set of wheels.

    A few weekends ago I took a trip to the nurburging for a friends 30th.
    What an awesome experience! unfortunately it was raining the day the track was open so it was pretty wet.

    2BiKWta.

    First lap I was pretty nervous with the damp conditions so it took me like 16mins to go round :lol:
    I did 3 laps in all and final lap was around 12.40 so not great. Also the Autobox sucks hard on track :lol:
    Hoping to go again next year.
    A few pics n vids

    It was close. What did cause you to spin - too much speed or did you brake in the middle?

    Yeah complete amatuer moment, that corner tightens at the end. I came in a bit quick and when it tightened I panicked and like a noob and just tapped the brakes mid corner :dunce: if you watch the vid you see me lock up the wheels at the start.
