Some very cool cars there.

At the festival of speed here in NZ a couple years ago BMW brought the Batmobile over from Munich for display purposes only as was deemed too valuable to run.

I really must book this the coming year. Europe has a lot to offer it would seem (I visited Technoclassica in Essen for the first time this spring)!

And - no disrespect...
Your car is nice and all, but a slant nose 930...

Orval 2,

Fantastic shots! Simply amazing stuff, thanks so much for posting these and now tell us about the cam. Was it a GoPro or some other brand? Is that a simple suction disc on your hood? The vibration was practically non-existent and I would have thought it would be massive from there. Also, where did you mount the mic? Were you using 2 or more cams? Tell, TELL!! I have fantasies of one day driving Willow Springs w/2 or more GoPro's attached, so I can get differing perspectives and edit it all together.

Anyway, Muchas gracias!!!

Phillip

PS Willow Springs is a raceway up North (here in Cal)

Woo hoo!!

Looks like an epic if wet at times weekend. Thanks for posting the photos.

The BASF paint job along with the Martini has always been my favourite. I used to buy their cassette tapes as i loved their circular patterns so much.

Thank you for sharing all those pictures with us!
Makes me wish I were there.. :P

You should to do something about the gap between the bumper and grille btw, it look like your sixer is about to take a bite out of something. Other than that I think your car is brilliant looking! :-)
