Great shots, and amazing experiences... miss our time spent there last summer on the Ring.

How did you like that new Graphite Blue color on the GT3?

Asking for a friend, of course.

Those where great days

Color: Difficult to say because of the weather/light but I think that if you're looking for a understated but classy look that might be the right choice.

Rain on the ring is fun, hope you guys did the most of It even not all like it.

Here is some inspiration from my wet SPA trip in the GTS.
Even the ring is not that safe and wide there are plenty of place where its very safe to slide on ring. But we must be Quick to save the slide from spinning out of track with the fast leftfootbraking. My friend is in his 488 behind me to film with the 360 camera on roof. Out of 2 days It was rain 1.5, still fun and not that crowded on track then.

Rain is the best way to learn the car or a track in a safe/slow way with out burning up those expencive CUP tires👍🏻

I personally like a wet Nurburgring, but not all do.

Nice video

Yeah, I like rain, or at least wet.

NS when raining heavy -> Aquaplaning so good idea to be really careful.

Spa is so much nicer to train wet driving then NS.

I'm not as skilled as you in sliding in roundabouts etc so I try to do it in small steps.

Succeeded well in nice slides (not planned ones) in Mutkurve and Metzgesfelt 1. The car (The old GT3) behaved really nice and just slided on all four tires in Mutkurve and in MF got from understear to overstear and after small correction with steering wheel just fine. Drove slower the next time.

It is nice to be on the limit in the wet from time to time to get a good feel for the griplevel and how the car behaves.

Agree, SPA much more safe layout. Nur is very much different.

In this video from back in the days i drive in front of my old friend Steve Gill. He follow me (in his stripped out CSL) as I show him a few place where I slide my artcar E46 CSL, reason was to accually make him dare to test It him selfe when I first show a few place. First test, you try the upphill lefthander after brunchen 2. Thats a safe place as upphill.

As I drive so slow in my car and I always Quick and redy to leftfoot brake If angle get to big. Then you save everything and will not spin out of track. It works on the rear engine porker as well. Problem is to many people dont know one must always be redy for the Quick leftfootbraking If you get to much angle, then you never spinn out of track.

Just go slow and keep leftfoot redy to apply brake instant If angle get to big, then you never accually go of track even If you get hot and get to big angle. Try on a safe place, left fot braking is what prevent you from going of.

Nice to see your Scandinavian Flick Rain Line

Left foor braking: I guess: Stay on throttle and left foot brake smoothly?

Or is it more like: Full Panic left foot braking?
