Sunday: I got up at 8:00 this morning with one mission in mind; get to nurburging at all costs. Thankfully, the weather more than cooperated today, as it was sunny and warm. The cars were going to be out in force today for sure. I get to the staion, pick up my ticket, and am soon on my way. Now, there is no train actually going to the Nurburgring, only the to the town near it. I then had to take a bus to a town even closer. I had no clue how to get to the track from the town of Adenau, but I'd find a way damnit. As it turns out, one end of the track was only a 15 minute walk from the town. Along the way, I tried hitchhiking my way onto the track, but no one was willing. Oh well. not even five minutes after setting up on a corner, I got to witness a crash. A brand new Porsche GT3 was packing a little too much heat going into the corner and lost control. That'll just cost him a cool 10,000 or 15,000 Euros. Not too bad, yeah? I stayed at the track until the last bus; and left with the smell of burning clutches and tires stuck in my nose. What an amazing place.
