I got some track time in one of their Lizards today. Bumble gets on a truck to London tomorrow. On my way to Stuttgart tomorrow to tour the other factory and museum. I'll come back some day during a better season to do the full ED experience. In the meantime, a little track time in their car, a couple factory/museum tours and 90 days with my US spec 3rs in the UK will have to suffice.

I have a lot of observations on .1 -> .2 3rs driving difference. Will post later.

My factory car was non-WP LG with gold wheels. I was shocked how much I liked the gold on green. I assumed I would not. LG wasn't quite as high-lighter bright as some pics show. It's a good green. And the copper wheels with it are *****-y, but somehow look good with it.

On driving impression:

My one high level comment is that not one items stands out as a giant leap over the .1. However, the better/louder sounds, lower-end torque, snappier PDK, more feedback, precision, etc, etc; its all one step above the old car. I might have been most surprised at how connected/ more feedback the car had vs the .1?

I went into this purchase with low expectations given it's a pretty similar formula to my old UV. But Porsche evolved it enough to make me really glad i made the upgrade. It's a more engaging car all around.

Hotel La Source is the best location for sure. That's where I will be. But a Hotel in the centre of Spa can be fun too as thats where all the action is on Saturday night.
Bookings are open

I've done quite a few events with Fredy Barth - always good, quiet open pitlane and you get a bit of free tuition as well. Nice chilled out atmosphere

Openpitlane.de is also good resource.
Imola is just amazing track. Even in old gt3..
I’ll try to be around Nring/Spa in June.

Thats a nice list of tracks but with a huge set of road miles in-between certain dates. From Hockenheim to Barcelona is 1,200km then from Barcelona to Redbullring is another 1,600kms! But no doubt you have already worked that out being the ED veteran that you are.
