I’m in southern Germany for two weeks to see car museums and to visit the amazing Nürburgring race track. I’m camping and driving with a bunch of Europeans who are members of a car forum I run.
My rental is this Mercedes-Benz E250 diesel. I got it up to 200 kph (124 MPH) on the Autobahn yesterday before having to back off due to the 210 kph limited snow tires that are stupidly on it.
The theme for the featured area this morning at Portland Cars & Coffee was red, white, and blue cars. They were all lined up in rotating order and it looked great!
Here’s a photo I snagged of my blue Viper next to a white Lamborghini and a red Viper.
I snagged a pretty sweet parking spot at yesterday morning’s Cars & Coffee at the awesome World of Speed Museum near Portland. Great weather too — it was originally supposed to be super hot in the morning but some nice cloud cover saved us, although it did get into the high 90s by the end of the day!
Last weekend I went autocrossing for the second time and I’m as hooked as ever! It’s such a blast, especially now that I have a 6 point racing harness in my car. It makes it a lot easier to feel what the car is doing as you’re held in very securely.
I still have a long way to go though — I see so many mistakes watching this video!
