Nürburgring (D) home
Annual ITR trip

12. october 2007

Gert Sterner and team manager Per Einarsson took off from Denmark with a three-day warning when the weekend weather-forecast gave some promise of sun at Nürburg and there-abouts. This would mean dry tarmac on the North Loop and possibly a lot of petrolheads gathering for a last outing at the ring this summer.

The rest of the gang had to stay behind but that didn't stop the dynamic duo from having a tremendous time doing eight laps each ... which is just about right for any normal dude

Team entrants:

Gert Sterner - Alfa Romeo 145Q (1996)
Best lap time 10:03

Per Einarsson - Alfa Romeo 2000 GT Veloce (1972)
Best lap time 10:03
