A 12.9 mile professional race track? A German public road? A rich boys playground? An average man’s dream? Fun fuelled weekend? Dangerous idea?

Nurburgring is all of the above.

Nurburgring is arguably the worlds most famous 12.9 stretch of road. The track has been in use since the late 1920s where the first German Grand Prix took place. As well as professional races being held, this track was opened to the public during the evenings and weekends. Not much has changed since then, Grand Prixs no longer take place there, instead it has become the place to test drive brand new cars, no doubt you’ve seen Jeremy Clarkson or the like doing their ‘job’ showing us the latest cars on the track. Not only this but the Average Joe can still go there drive or ride their own vehicles.

Nathan (the boss) here at Fasttrack has just had the pleasure of doing just that, spending a weekend at the world famous track in his Audi 4.2 V8 S4 4 wheeled drive. Catching the ferry from Dover Thursday night and landing in Dunkirk. Stopping in a hotel in Dunkirk, got a good nights sleep and then early morning headed up to North Germany for a five hour plus journey, the drive up there was a treat in itself. Driving on Germany’s autobahns are renowned for being bale to travel at very high speeds unlike our British 70mph motorways. Both Nathan and friend Sean had a good few blasts on the autobahns to get in the mood for tomorrows track day track.

Arriving at Nurburgring was incredible, there was fifty+ bikes, an amazing array of cars from 1940s Italian Exotica to the modern day Lamborghini’s. This is a rich boys playground!

Nathan and Sean, over two days completed eight laps each, it doesn’t sound a lot, but it was definitely enough to get the heart racing. When I asked Nathan to describe how it felt, he fell silent for a minute with a huge grin on his face “AWESOME!” was the first thing he said, but the grin said a 1000 words. “Being able to do a four wheeled slide round an open corner at 120mph was just incredible, then followed by a series of left and right turns” there’s that grin again!

“It’s just like nothing else, being able to use my car to its full engine power, something you couldn’t do in the UK because of the road surfaces”

Just one day after Nathan was there it was reported on the MCN website that there was a huge crash at Nurburgring. http://www.motorcyclenews.com/MCN/News/newsresults/General-news/2011/October/oct0411-nurburgring-bikers-beware/

I asked Nathan legal viagra if he ever felt in danger whilst driving round “Yeah you feel that it is slightly dangerous, as there are so many faster cars than yourself and more dangerously people that are just trying too hard and pushing themselves more than they are capable of. I found myself having to move over and let people by” So the moral of the story is, don’t try and push yourself to hard, know your limits, boys showing off usually ends in tears.

So would he do it all again but on a bike this time? There was hesitation “When I’m riding a bike, I have to be going fast for a thrill, to go fast I need to know the track, what twists and turns are coming up next and what to expect after the turn. There’s no way I could learn the track in such a small amount of time”

Woo hoo the summer is finally here, it’s only nearly bloody October! So we really are getting the Indian Summer that we are promised nearly every year…

Sitting in my office, I can see the sun shining and I can hear it too! Not the sweet sound of song bird nor the children playing in the parks, no, I can hear engines, motorbike engines! Whizzing down the busy main road that our showroom is on.

Us British are renowned for making the most of the smallest bit of sunshine, stripping off at lunch and sitting in the sun, dipping into the cold British seas or having a BBQ at any given chance (me and my friends last night!) But us motorcyclists are no different, any glimpse of sunshine and the bike comes out. As my bike is my only mode of transport I don’t really have a choice in the matter, come rain or shine viagra soft tabs I’m on my bike but riding in the sun is a completely different experience.

I find myself on my ride to work on a cold and wet day just thinking about getting to work, getting in the warmth, nipping through every bit of traffic and finding the quickest route to work and trying to miss every set of traffic lights. But my ride to work in the sunshine is completely different, I take my time, really thinking about my riding, enjoying the time (even if it is through the city) I don’t find myself battling my way through traffic and thinking about getting to work. In fact I kind of almost want to continue past work and ride off into the country side!

So I urge you, get your bike out, go and enjoy this glorious bit of weather we’re having, because it really might be the last of it until next year!

We’re pretty excited here down at Fasttrack HQ. There’s a new arrival, he’s loud, mean looking and everyone cant help but look twice. No I’m not talking about a new mechanic, I’m talking about our Harley Davidson Rocker C!

It really is a treat for the ears, it’s absolutely immaculate, glossy black paint work, masses of chrome and its chopper style lines. This really is a riders delight to look at, even if Harley’s aren’t your thing, there is no way you cant appreciate the way it looks. With it’s big fat back tyre and skinnier front, this is something special. It also has a little trick up its sleeve or should I say seat, when you want that second passenger to join you on cialis brand a ride, you can slide a second seat from under the first! It’s a pretty cool addition and works really well.

 

With two huge silver exhausts climbing their way out of the beautiful engine, you know that even before you fire that engine up your ears are going to be in for a treat. And I’m not wrong! It starts with a deep low grunt and grumbles into a loud rumble like a creature from depths of hell!

 

Nathan here was hoping to get a few weeks of riding and looking cool in the last of the summers sunshine out of it before we sold it, but as soon as it was mentioned on our website, there was interest. There seems to be a real big interest in these custom-style bikes at the moment.

 

Why don’t you come down yourself and take and look and listen at this beauty. If not, I will get a video up soon so you can hear for yourselves!

 The weathers turning, it’s getting cold outside and the nights are already getting darker. So what better way to spend to spend an evening curled up of the sofa and in front of the TV. But last nights TV wasn’t watching Deirdre on Coronation Street or the Mitchell’s in the East End. Oh no, this was something a lot more exciting, me and brother watched the Redbull X-Fighters competition in Dubai.

 As you might expect with Dubai, the land of man made islands, not just an indoor ski slope but an indoor ski mountain and a whole heap of over the top extreme luxuries for the richer man. So with this, the bike course, was a spectacle in itself, built on Jumeirah Beach in front of huge towering buildings, it looked incredible, especially as the competition was at night, it would have been amazing to be there.

As a family we used to go and watch a fair bit of Supermoto and Motocross, but never quite on this scale. I suppose that’s what the collaboration of Redbull does for you, look at all these extreme sports now linked with Redbull, snow sports, water sports, car racing, aeroplane racing, you name it and Redbull has turned it into a world wide success and popular with the masses.

 It’s been a few years since going to watch any live action and a good while since watching anything on TV. I had completely forgotten just how amazing these guys are. I was in absolute awe last night, these guys don’t just ride bikes, they are like trained gymnasts, twisting and turning, getting into crazy positions and they just so happen to have motorbike flying through the air with them!!

The idea of speeding up a steep ramp, taking off and then letting go of your bike mid air whilst superman-ing behind it just seems absolutely alien to me. But they all seemed to do it as if it were the easiest and most normal thing to do! Amazing. It has totally got me excited to go and see some of this stuff live again. I just need to find somewhere now, as I don’t think I can afford the flight over to Brazil where the next Redbull X-Fighters is going to be held!

 

If didn’t get over to Dubai or just missed it on TV last night, here’s a bit of what you missed.
