En route to Le Mans Classic
6. july 2010
Closing in on the 10Y anniversary for North Looping, a team of three redders visited the infamous Nürburgring on the way to the Le Mans Classic in France.
Søren bærholm was there in the powerful Audi 200 turbo 20-valver, and he was eager to better the time from last year. We only drove two laps, so there wasn't much opportunity to set a phantom lap time. The first round was at a hesitant pace, just to reaquaint and test the machines, but lap two was full-tilt, and we set a good speed until we arrived at a yellow -flagged Pflanzgarten.
A sorry Seat had overturned and was halfways over the armco. So the laps of this year were quite meager, but Søren Bærholm demonstrated that he can set a fine time if given a clear run. Per Einarsson just strolled the Bertone GT ... funny how experience gives you wings !?!
Søren Bærholm - Audi 200 20V - best lap time 9:56 BTG
Per Einarsson - Alfa Romeo 2000 GT Veloce - best lap time 9:59 BTG
Simon Nielsen - Did not drive
|Assembly at Audi Zentrum Midtfunen (AZM) at Søren Bærholm's - four Audis, no less!||Gert Sterner joined the journeymen for a nice summer diner in the garden.|
|Early morning time and the two cars are ready, Alfa Romeo Bertone GT and Audi 200 20V||Simon Nielsen preferred the cosy ambience of the Ingolstädter Autobahn-roller|
|The little italian ran without a single hickup but it didn't prevent the team to peek under the bonnet||Per Einarsson's beautiful Alfa Romeo gets a scrub with some hot-foam|
|Leaving another parking-garage, this time we were late because of too much talk the ticket didn't work||Cruising on immaculate german motorways has grown into a common summer pass-time|
|After the hot-foam treatment||We have to attend to our prettiness|
|The Audi is ready for some action on the Nordschleife||On post-coitus the cars turned west for a cruise through Luxembourg and into France|
