21-03-2010 Nurburgring Photos (TF)

Well here it is the first photo’s of  the Nurburgring Touristen Fahrten held on the legendary Nordschleife.

It was a rather wet affair & overcast and on arrival there were a very scraped looking Ferrari 430 on the yellow truck, I was expecting a closure but the Northloop was in full swing.

I wouldnt say it was busy but it was a good start considering the awfull weather and the past large snow falls.

The storms which hit the Eifel have changed a lot of the landscape “Xynthia”  has caused extensive damage to the trees in the area.
