I was in europe for the past month or so and I made one of my stops at the legendary Nurburgring circuit. Lucky for us there was a 6hr race going and I was able to snap these. It was an amazing experience and I suggest any car nut who plans to visit Germany should definitely make "The Green Hell" one of their stops. I told myself that the next time I come here, I'm going to fork over the 30 euro or whatever it is and take a shot at driving on it. I hope you guys enjoy!

hi marcello-

ah, the holy grail of racing. nice panning shots, but it looks like you could use a little more reach.

Thank you. I agree that I definitely could've used more reach, which is why my next purchase is going to be the 70-300VR or the 80-200 f/2.8.

Awesome pics. The Nurburgring Nordschleife is truly an amazing place. The Dorint hotel adjacent to the Grand Prix track has so much 'Ring memorabilia it's crazy. I agree, this is definitely a place you have to visit (and drive/ride) if you're a gear head.

I drove a Porsche 911 turbo on the Nurburgring in Sept. 1991 and it was an experience. I did three laps in different cars.

Your photos are wonderful.......great panning.
