Does that mean I get to see that big silly sign waving saying welcome to the forum!? Wahoo!

Few car shots I took on my recent trip to Spa Franorchamps/Nurburgri​ng Nordschliefe/Luxembour​g. Cracking trip and a rare moment for me to 'do' car shots, as it's not normally something I spend any time on. Comments and such most welcome.

The story behind the white Integra R is that fresh after a two year holiday (read as a costly rebuild) after it bent a crankshaft on Spa in 2005, it went on this year's jaunt. And promptly snapped one of its Jun Stage 3 camshafts after about 90miles on track. The car's a heavily modified beast doing about 250bhp at 9k+ rpm via a set of custom ITB's off a large bike engine. So I drove out the M5 (and drove it at the Ring even though it's not mine) as a replacement (he owns both the Integra and the M5), meaning we could continue the rest of the holiday.

The last shot is a 4 shot panoramic taken outside the Hohe Acht hotel which is named after one of the Ring's most infamous corners. The hotel is literally a few hundred yards away through the trees.

Cheers for looking guys!

Cheers, Dave.

Great shots and how fun! But #3 & #4 the cars are very dirty due to driving them, I'm sure. #2, the car is clean, much more presentable. Focus is good, though. I just noticed you've posted 1k times, but this is your first image post? Still, it's about time!

First post in Transportation... ;)

And yeah, the cars were filthy from the trackdays, but in the Porche's case, which is a true race car and is competing in the endurance races at the Ring soon, the filth seems most correct. It's for driving not for polishing you know... Awesome car.


Cheers, Dave.

I've actually driven a Porche while living in NJ and I found the shifting a little too tight for me. I love power, but I would rather drive a little Honda S2000. :) I have so many neighbors who have sports cars, some race. I marvel at how much they have to do to keep their cars up. I am a little jealous, but now that I'm older and wiser, I feel very safe in my minivan. ;)
