VLN WITH DALE: TIME FOR TEA?
Imagine all the madness of a busy day on the Nordschleife, just with racing cars instead
At one point you can see me darting from wet patch to wet patch in effort to reduce the heat in the delicate rain tyres. And woe betide the driver who changes to slicks, because he's guaranteed to find a flood out there somewhere. Of over 200 entries, fewer than 150 actually crossed the line. Our team was delighted to finish, so the second place in class still just feels like a bonus.
This weekend is the seventh VLN race of 2013, and there are still three more to go. I predict it will be a typical Nürburgring saga. Man and machine pushed to the limits through wind, fog and rain. If you want to watch it, you should be able to logon from 1045h (UK time) here.
I'm not sure how much of our little Rent4Ring BMW 125i (#506) you'll be able to see amongst the Porsches, Astons and AMGs, but we will be out there. Wish us luck!
