Nürburgring (D) home
32nd Old-timer Grand Prix

6-8 august 2004

It was decided earlier this year that ITR had to go to the Nürburgring at least once during the summer. Bad weather cancelled a trip in july, and we settled for the 32nd OGP instead.

Søren Bærholm had prepared his Audi 100 meticously during the spring and it had even been broken-in at an Alfa Romeo Track Day. So obviously we went in the silver arrow.

We stayed in a nice little town near Hohe Acht and did a lot of comuting around the tremendous North Loop to visit all the best vantage points.

The OGP itself was overwhelming as was the spectators cars that flooded the streets of Adenau every evening.

ITR participants:

Søren Bærholm - 2 laps on the north loop and passenger on 1 lap

Per Einarsson - Photos, videos, 1 lap on the north loop and passenger on 2 laps

Anton Norup - Photos and passenger on 1 north loop lap

Gert Sterner - Photos and passenger on 1 north loop lap
