Nürburgring Nordschleiffe "Green Hell trip" with Nasir Hameed
Yesterday I went to the Nürburgring with Nasir Hameed. We drove on the old Nordschleiffe section and today we visited the old pits. There will be a report of this trip in the podcast. Thanks to Nasir and greatings to all F1 Weekly forum members!

Louis, this looks like a fantastic venture!

I'm anxious to hear the podcast. The Porsche 944 looks fantastic- it's one of my favorite car designs and I remember seeing them race at SCCA events here.

I see Nasir pointed directly to the Alfa Romeo logo. I think I remember a podcast where he said it was his favorite logo.

Thanks for posting, and let's hear more about you and our globetrotting co-host.

Thank you for the compliment. My 944 has seen the Nordschleiffe before; last year in the Caracciola Carousel banked corner:

Also good luck to Nasir on his trip!

Indeed. Add to that a guided tour of Amsterdam; especially on a canal boat! Many thanks to Louis.

If you're still in Amsterdam on Sunday - head to Vondelpark for some great entertainment

Wonderful weather today at Donington Park and Nasir got some interviews including with Bryan Herta's son Colton, who's driving in the MSA Formula series.

I'll do my best to post some images on Sunday evening.

Curry tonight here https://www.facebook.com/CafeMashRestaurant

(Let's hope their food is more freshly updated than their Facebook page...)

Mark

Give them the benefit of the doubt and book next year's Valentine's reservation now.

We are looking forward to photos!

So when searching for current photo's of my autumn trip to the Ring.... I found this picture of me and Nasir driving into the "Rudolf Caracciola Karussell" banked corner on our Ring trip last spring. So nice to be on a road trip with Nasir; he told me so many historic autosport stories... it was like listening to a 24 hours F1Weekly podcast!

WOW! Never thought I would be "photographed" going into Karussell. This was reserved for Nuvolaris and Clarks of the world. Vielen Danke Herr und Fahrer Louis!!
