Yeah true, I bet the straights seem to go on forever – I remember thinking that even at Silverstone when I raced a Classic Mini. You can start looking out the window lol!
Nice that you’ve been though – I’d love to go!!03/04/14 at 13:05 #216234ashw92Participant
I would absolutely love to the do the ring and now I’d be much happier doing it in the BMW than the Fiesta! I’ve tried to convince the girlfriend that we should take a little holiday over to Germany but she quickly sussed out why. She’s convinced I’ll end in up in some fiery wreck :(. I’d love to at least do a track day though but it’s certainly not cheap.03/04/14 at 14:08 #216240YoulesParticipant
You should do a track day, it’s amazing – I did mine through Evo Magazine, and aside from the car’s wear-and-tear it was £250 but you got 2 hours and 20 minutes track time – which is a lot! The cars were split into 3 groups, and every hour for 7 hours each group got 20 minutes so you always had 40 minutes rest for the loo, a drink, the car to cool down and get over the excitement and chat to others. Such a great day, I was actually still buzzing the following morning! Sadly you can’t record videos, or lap times, or “competitively” overtake – you just have to let faster cars past.03/04/14 at 23:25 #216303
Germany and the Germans are amazing :) We drove from Calais to the Nurburgring, then to Frankfurt, then Berlin (awesome city), then Dresden (VW Phaeton factory, wow!!), then Munich, then Konstanz, then Zurich (meh) and back to Konstanz, then Strasbourg to eat cheese and garlic, then home. We stayed in hostels everywhere except Konstanz, all of which seemed family friendly and were really comfey, it was a great trip and I’d definitely do it again.
So Youles, would a track day knacker your front tyres out then? I never realised it could be so pricey!15/09/14 at 20:36 #229074
On Thursday or Friday night last week me and my missus had our bikes stolen from the bike store at our block of flats. On Saturday, when we realised, it was two weeks until our wedding day so with so much stress and long lists of stuff to do I just got on with ringing the police and the insurance company and felt totally meh about the whole thing. Last night though, having finished work for two and a half weeks and had a bit of time to relax, I found myself getting more and more angry to the point that this morning I woke up seriously upset and raging. I’m coming up short whilst trying to think of a decent rant, so I’m just gonna say I’m royally fucked off. Fucking thieving bastards, I hope you all catch ebola.24/10/14 at 22:30 #231568
That sucks Ron! If not doing anything about it is causing you stress, maybe it’s then worth doing something about it with the fuzz and insurance company?25/10/14 at 13:58 #231585
It’s sorted now thanks Gazza, wedding stress was the big thing and this almost sent me over the edge. My wife’s bike is coming next week and mine might arrive in December. The insurance company were alright to deal with in the end, the police were fantastic, unfortunately there’s no sign of our old bikes so the thieves win this round, grrr.26/10/14 at 14:34 #231624
Glad you got it sorted, must be a load off your mind with the Wedding coming up!26/10/14 at 18:11 #231637
It’s been and gone mate, it was fooking brilliant :) I’ll stick a picture up when I get a moment!27/10/14 at 19:47 #231721
Ah, I must of misread “two weeks until our wedding” thinking it was this weekend coming. Glad it went well!14/11/14 at 06:28 #233263
Yesterday I saw Interstellar. What a brilliant movie. I haven’t been this impressed by a movie in a long time.
In the mean time my last year at univ is slowly fading away. Weird feeling17/11/14 at 08:37 #233358
I agree, it’s brilliant! Nolan and everyone involved managed to shove their hands right into my chest and give my gooey innards a good squeeze. I felt utterly gripped by wonder, despair and panic from the moment they left Earth. If you like Scifi and enjoy letting yourself get sucked into a powerful story then go and see Interstellar. My one word review on Facebook went like this:
Wow.17/11/14 at 20:48 #233423
I loved it especially because the SciFi part is like a nice big red ribbon that hugs the great story underneath it. I love that he hits so many things at once in the movie not just space. We see ideas about an apocalypse, family, population eradication, etc.
SPOILER ALERT AGAIN
– That scene when they get back and 23 years passed….I was speechless.19/11/14 at 10:25 #233532
Yes, definitely, it was an extremely powerful few scenes! I remember The Bicentennial Man having a similar idea but conveying the passage of time in a more sad way but Interstellar managed to make the same idea full of panic and despair, bloody gut wrenching!
And if anyone’s reading this not knowing what we’re on about but intending to see Interstellar then DONT SCROLL UP!25/11/14 at 15:11 #233893
I came down with something. Yesterday I stayed in bed all day long. Head was pounding,fever, my joints were aching. I didn’t even game.
Just stayed in bed and started watching Arrow.
