    Apparently an 8 year old boy who died, although I could not confirm that from what I read on the internet.

    That would mean cutting thousends of trees. New access roads etc.
    No more "green hell" anymore.

    Concerning the spectator who was killed: According to the German police he (?) was from the Netherlands.

    I wonder if they'll change the spectator area or knock the top off of Flugplatz. Hope they do #1, this is one of the more awesome parts of the track even in a non race car.

    New report is another one I wasn't hoping for: if it's true, it's a guy I've met quite a few times. I've checked his Facebook and he was at the ring today...

    I haven't heard of the FIA wanting to ban GT3 cars from the Nurburgring, got a link?

    The German DSMB have temporarily banned a number of classes that feature GT3 and GT4 cars in the VLN whilst the investigation is completed. That is for certain. With the 24 only six weeks away it remains to be seen what will happen between now and then. There's a lot of factory involvement and money in those classes so I can't see it being a permanent ban. Unfortunately this ban also covers the Glickenhaus project.

    We remain hopeful that they will ensure safety and the race will go on. There are a number of places that will let us race. Either way we will continue.

    The guys from WAFT produced an amazing book on the birth of SCG003.

    ‘Inside SCGOO3’ is a great read and a fantastic opportunity to become a slight part of our adventure.

    It is an amazing and very emotional read.

    What is the limit and how far over were you?

    Didn't sound all that loud in the few vids I've seen. Bummer.

    Jeez. Surprised the Germans didn't take it to 2 or 3 decimal places.

    Maybe bigger turbos will knock off a couple dBA? :)

    Yes to start with.

    24 SERIES 2015 : Regulations

    We've also been invited to Bathurst and other races.

    Every day there's more interest in having us race.

    We also investigating building a ground up an LMP 1 for 2017 for WEC and Le Mans while we continue to race SCG 003 this and next year.

    I went to the local Barnes and Noble, and they still had LAST month's R&T!

    Thankfully, the Surfer magazine Swimsuit Issue was in, so ....not a total loss.
    Will check back next week!

    R&T not getting the distribution it once enjoyed, down here.

    Great photo of the little girl..nice hat!!
