We were over at the 'RING' for a few days 1/5/14 till 5/5/14

Anyone from here go over?

Anyway just thought I would share our trip. Hope to be in the Scoob next year!!!

Think this is my 4th trip to the 'RING' but always been with the bike up till this year! I hated it on the bike, as the first lap I ever did on the 3rd corner a car almost took me out!! did a couple more laps but was always worried but being taken out so never really enjoyed it. I really just went for the Holiday for the years to follow after that.

Anyway this year I offered to take the bike trailer over for the guys and take the Disco. Best decision I have made I think
The run down to the ferry was damp, but not too wet! The weather over there was fantastic the whole time apart from a few showers the first day we were there.

Did 4 laps in the Disco which performed much better than I ever expected it would!!! Could be doing with a set of APs on it too though

Think my fastest lap was 11.44 and that was with 6 people in the car!!! I could never get a solo lap as everyone wanted to go round in the Disco for a laugh
Would manage a lot quicker if I could get the traction control fully turned off as it just dies coming out of the corners!!

After the laps in the Disco and getting to understand the track a wee bit more I quite fancy having another bash with the bike!

Any way the pics and videos

Our pad for the week







All the way to Germany and we bump into Guys that live less than 40 miles from us!



The Disco's tyres held up well



One of the guys we were with managed a 8.30 minute lap, scary shit!!!!



Seen many of these!! was closed quite a lot due to smashes!!!



Norma heading out for her first ever lap of the 'RING' !! well done you



Norma just back from her lap of the 'RING'



Norma and 2 of the other Guys did the 'RING TAXI' Think it was the highlight of her trip




Went for a bit of sight seeing on the Saturday as the 'RING' was closed most of the day
