    Pucker up!

    I don't mean kissing either.

    I wonder if I can rent a car to run at the Nurburgring?

    Several companies hire out cars for the Nordschleife, Grouch. Two example below.

    www.rsrnurburg.com/

    www.nurburgring.org.uk/carhire.php

    Mind you, I can see why you might want to hire rather than drive your own pride and joy.

    I posted this on a few sites I'm a member of. very few people in the U.S. even know what the Nurburgring is. These are the same people who buy the limited vehicle available in the U.S. The same companies sell quite a few more economical and fun cars in Britain than they do in the U.S., mainly to protect fat profits. Try to buy a used Jeep Liberty with a diesel in America. You'll pay a good 50% of the new car price for one with nearly 200K on the clock.

    Just for the uninitiated a picture of the circuit with approximate speeds (kph) and gear shown at various points. I am aware that the spelling of the image title is incorrect - Nordschleife is correct.
