So lets talk Nurburgring! The trip was great although there was a little problem...

So got the car ready on Wednesday night/ Thursday Morning. Set my BC's and fitted a stud conversion along with some added stickers :tongue:

So we boarded the ferry at Hull on Thursday night, Friday morning we set off from Rotterdam and headed to Adenau (where we were staying at the ring)

Cheeky pic of our 3 cars in Holland

image_zpswwbft6ew.jpeg

But then it all went wrong for me! Driving through Belgium and something falls off the back of a truck in front, i run over it... Tyre light comes on

So i pull over, we get the wheel off and it looks like its just a puncture! Great ill get it fixed in Adenau... but after further inspection... there's a huge crack on the barrel of my Rota!

image_zpscajdsa9m.jpeg

So after a lot of swearing i fitted my steelie and carried on to Adenau.

Got to Adenau and drove around every garage in Adenau and Nurburg looking for someone to repair my wheel or sell me a set! No luck

But i still went around the ring with my Steelie on, wasn't great but i wasn't going all that way for nothing!

Loved the trip and can't wait to go back (hopefully in August) Got home and got the rota repaired but I've now sold them and bought some OZ Superturismos which I'm currently getting refurbed

For now its sat on the Monzas !

Seats came with sliders but i had to fabricate some subframes to bolt them in. Pretty easy to do.

Because you're taking out a seat with an air bag you need to put a resistor in the line so you don't get a warning light.

I also got the seat belt chime coded out just in case (Didn't really need it)

have you got any photos of the subframes you fabricated, if not what did you do to fabricate them?

I don't no but its basically 2 pieces of angle bolted where your original seats bolt, then 2 pieces of flat bar welded across with holes for bolting down the seat

Hope that helps, if not i'll try get some pics when I'm home

Looks like you had fun at the ring despite the accident with your wheel, on the plus side superturismos will look cool as hell on this :)
