Nürburgring (D) home
Multi-car-club trackday

5-6 may 2009

The main purpose of this trackday - the first Nürburgring event of 2009 - was to bring the Audi 200 20V and the Alfa Romeo 166 3-litre to the Nordschleife. The Scuderia didn't quite succeed, because the Audi suffered a burnt turbo, and had to return on a limp to the Scuderia Garages in Denmark.

But Gert Sterner was there - as expected - in the black Alfa Romeo 145Q. This time on Toyo 888 R-tires, and he fair and square tied with the 230 bhp Alfa leviathan. Racing semi-slicks have definetly shown their worth.


The event was supporting this spring's Scuderia Hanseat Fahrer-Lehrgang, and as usual a bunch of danish petrol-heads met up and had a lot of fun. Michael Ryhl passengered and even tried to hire a Suzuki Swift - of former Norup fame - but had to settle for the right seat in as many cars as possible. The Swifts were all taken that week.

Gert Sterner - Alfa Romeo 145 Q - best lap time 9:27 BTG

Per Einarsson - Alfa Romeo 166 3.0 24V - best lap time 9:30 BTG
