Almost hit the wall today at Hockenheimring. 12 more inches and I probably totalled my car. Luckily I was a ble to recover. For some reason the car felt sluggish today or maybe because I am a bit under the weather trying to hit the track. Anyhoo here are some pics...

Geting ready to hit the track.


Someone succeded in kissing the wall.


Corner action with the only other ITR.


The sunset was perfect today on my way home from Hockenheimring and decided to stop and take these unedited pictures. I think I got skills...




Here's a link to the album for more pictures. I could not post them here because they're not Integras.

Would you mind if I posted these on my blog? A beautiful Integra like this one deserves a little airtime. Glad she didn't touch the wall!

Thanks Ami and go right ahead I'd be honored if my ITR makes it to your blog. Oh and Im so glad I did not hit the wall also.
I was dumb enough to look down and check out how fast I was going in the sharpest corner of the track (see top right of pic). I tried to brake but was going too fast. It was one of those things when everything around you slows down and the "fight or flight" kicks in. I seized up a bit and then the wall got bigger and bigger then at the last minute I was able to recover in the grass somehow. Was a lucky day for sure.

This is not my video but at 1:18 is where I almost hit the wall. You can see a silver car that probably did the same as me and realized early that he/she would not make it so it went straight instead of slaming on the brake on the turn like I did.

Edit: I did not see it at first but my showed up at 9:11 on this video.

Beautiful find, good sir. And those last few pictures at sunset are just fantastic! I wish I could take my R on the 'Ring.

nice pictures in your album man. Sooo glad you didn't hit the wall as well, what the hell would you do with your free time with out the R? lol

edit: are you allowed to just freely pass on the tracks there? Seems like everyone was just hauling ass past each other, looks intense.

Damn, that little hatch lookin thing at the very end looked quick as hell!!!


Yeah that hatch was pretty quick. The thing that sucks, for the Germans at least, is that modified cars like these that are unusually fast are deemed not street legal. They can only be driven in the track :(

Thanks. I think I have PTSD from that experience now LOL... Not gonna stop me from going back again though.
All is fair game on this particular track. If you have a slow car you get passed alot :) I was scared on my first run a few months ago because of all the load buzzing at every turn. I learned my lesson though and I closed my window this time around LOL

Nurburgring, my least favorite track for high speed racing on Gran Turismo 5 haha

Too bad you couldn't race today! I bet just being there was a tease! I bet that would be a great time pushing the ITR to its limits on such a famous race track!
agree, that would be amazing!

Some say "This **** is better than Sex!!!" (video link)

http://www.youtube.com/v/KQxTd-bmBWg?fs=1&hl=en_US

I had a passenger and he kept saying "Don't get me killed man!" (especially when we spun around)... At the end of the session he said "That **** was better than sex man!!!". He ended up tracking his Integra RS too, LOL.

The actual video was actually over 25 mins of track time but I cut it down to 10 min.

Pic before the track...

I was definately taking it easy at the corners but still getting pretty good Gs though. This is the first time I spun but last time I almost hit the wall.
