Kobalt: "Then it is a busy week at the Ring: Which ends with the 24H race and all the craziness in the Eifel woods and mountains with the 24H Party People."

I still laugh when i think of our 24H trip a few years back. The sheer ingenuity of enthusiast i saw in the woods + beer gardens that rose out of nowhere was staggering. Hats off to the Germans, makes the rest of the partying world look like amateurs

I'm about the same.
You did break it in as I recall, me a little less so.

100CL of oil in 3000 miles and 10 track days just to experiment.
Did 3 days after that and another couple thousand miles and no oil use at all.

Gets better with age.

no track days, 7500km done so far on the road, careful reading in until 1000km and still about 3/4 of a liter of oil per 1000km.

Mine and Trakcars RS's are probably not "normal" since we have to pay for the black stuff.

Porsche rented the Nordschleife for 1.5 hour this evening to do what seemed to be long run tests in preparation for the 24H.

24H seems like a breeze compered to the 86 hours(!) race of 1970: Marathon de la Route.

It took place on the 18th to 22th of August and they drove the combined Nordschleife and SŘdschleife.

65 teams started and 24 made it to the finish line. Porsche was number 1,2, and 3 with the 914/6 GT.

The winning team with 360 laps was: GÚrard Larrousse / Helmut Marko / Claude Haldi.
In the second placed Porsche was Bj÷rn Waldegňrd.

The year after, 1971 21-24 of August it was time for Marathon de la Route again.

This time 96 hours (!!!). Because of reconstructions "only" Nordschleife was driven.

16 of 39 teams made it all the way and the winners was Henry / ThÚrier / Nusbaumer in Alpine Renault (461 laps).

Second place took Hennerici / Kuhl / Hennerici (BMW 2002 TI / 453 laps)


Heinz Hennerici was a one armed racing driver. He lost the arm in World War II.

Hennerici was a smoker: So he had packs of cigarettes taped to the dash board and when coming out on the long straight, D÷ttinge H÷he, he lit a cigarette. If he finished the cigarette before entering the SŘdschleife he knew he's been driving too slow

The RS looked so sad today. No play, just work. On the outside looking in: To the right in the pictures you see the happy cars that got to play at the Trackday. RS was not allowed because trakday was full.

Wow - did he have to take his hand off the steering wheel to shift? And people complain about having to steer with one hand while shifting without PDK

I suppose he used his knees a lot

A true hero.

Imagine him steering the car with his knees while trying to light the cigarette going down D÷ttinge H÷he at full speed.
