My first visit to the Nürburgring was to se the 1000 km race 1969. And I drove my first lap in July 1970.
I normally go to the Ring 2 to 4 times a year. I have booked my first trip this year and it is to see the VLN-race no:3, and the race is the 2 of May.
Hin Lennart! Thanks for finding and adding this pretty amazing video of the 1971 1000km race! I haven't seen it before and it's quite funny to see where some of the actual bosses of the racing industry like Reinhold Joest and Dr. Marco were coming from.
That is where they should be but a number of people now run the replicas if they are given papers. The Project Aston Martin DP212 races at Goodwood each year and is worth £8m, see pictures of it in my photos. It is not mine nor the DB4GT with yellow nose in the photograph. The only thing about racing these cars is that if they do have an accident the value will remain the same but it may cost a few £100,000 to repair them ! Luckily I have only had a couple of small accidents with mine, also in my photos.
Both of those pictures were taken at Brands Hatch. The DB4Lightweight is mine and the DB4GT I wish was mine!
Rich Hawcroft (David) in the Mini Cooper S at Paddock Bend kept the crowds enthralled each lap as he went down Paddock Hill Bend sideways in the style of John Rhodes (see Mini Owners Group.) but without the tyre smoke. Everyone got out of their seats and cheered for him not for the bigger muscle cars, Astons,Mustang's, Camaro's,Tiger's etc.
Great to have you on board :-))
