^^ Yes, I filled in the form for Nogaro and Val de Vienne, I received an email to login to the website but I can’t see how to signup for those events or how to pay? Maybe it’s not available yet, but others are selling out.

The Nordschleife is still two months away, but I’m stdying!
Hopefully I can start where I left off; 8 minutes BTG...

Thanks!
It seems they open registration about 4 weeks prior to the event.

April and May booked otherwise, with a quick trip to the Smokies in between :-)

If anyone has hotel suggestions for Nogaro and Val de Vienne for safe parking, let me know!

I had to scrap it, cant pass sound on the dates that I could make it.
They wouldn't even take my money to try once I told them I have a 2019RS with extra quiet final tips. (Soul)

It is getting more and more difficult being a track rat.

Looks like you will be well prepared. Best to go in with no time target and work into it slowly given the consequences of being a bit offline. Your study will pay off. I didn't do as much prep as you and after 2 days instruction wouldn't have said that I knew the track well enough to push. Good luck its going to be epic.

Anyway, the preparation continues, renewed my Ringcard and added credits..

Nice

Get a telescopic stick to hold the card like Kobalt, so you donít scratch your rims on the curb trying to reach the card reader too.

I had trouble in a 991.2 Turbo with 3-point belts and sofa seats - itís a long reach in the widebody cars...

Your arms are longer though

Just a little update,

We know that www.opentrack.com is the track insurance vendor of choice for track junkies.
I opted for international coverage for the .2RS and they just approved this list of tracks.

Easy to deal with, easy to bind a policy and from a few recent mishaps, we know they pay without BS.
I'm very happy these guys are around to support our hobby :-)

I told them to send me a windshield banner LOL.....
