Hey guys,

last weekend there was a big event on the famous Nürburgring in Germany.
The AvD (Automobileclub of Germany) presents the 40 anniversary of the Oldtimer GrandPrix.
Here in Germany Oldtimer means ClassicCar.

enough words - let pictures speak themselves

to make a long story short:

2,5 years ago in the morning I drove from my girlfriend to a date with my dentist :?
night was rainy - streets wet. On a straight part of the road a lorry was in the front of me and i wanted to pass it.
So I shifted down with double clutch into 2. gear at maybe 70-80km/h and steered out. But in 2. gear with this speed there is a huge amount of tourge - combinated with steering .. it is a bad mixture in a midengined car. So the tail break out and i couldn´t catch it. I wasn´t injured except I bit my tongue when I shout out "s h i t" and hit the roadside ditch.

frame was damaged - repairing to expesive
then i selled it in parts and bought the Altezza RS200 with manual transmission.
It´s so much easier to control a front engined rear wheel driven car ;-)
