did the M5 ring taxi.....

Two weekends ago, I had a blast! Some friends and I did the last Saturday night of the Springfest in Stuttgart....after a few good hours of sleep, we drove up to the Nurburgring to ride in the M5 taxi. HOLY SHIZZO!!! That was the fastest 9 minutes of my life!! I've posted up a link of the ride here:

The recording is okay, not great, cause I used my iphone. Recording on the 'ring is basically verbotten. While standing at the gate, we often heard the technicians telling folks to remove recording devices/cameras from their windscreens. Some were not allowed in until the camera/wires were stowed away. Anyways, during my recording, in some places, you'll see I could not hold my phone still cause of the ride....drifting, catching air two or three times and all out speed!!! at one point I saw the speedo registering 220km/hr!!!! Not one car passed us..not one! "We" did run down a couple p-cars....

The ride was fantastic!! I think it was 195 euros for four butts in the car. I split it between me and a friend. I was up front, he had the whole backseat....as you can tell in the video, we laughed and giggled like little girls the whole time....we are doing it again!

attached are some of the different rides we saw entering and leaving.......

all in all a great day! something you should do if your ever in Germany....I live here, thanks to the Army....

thought I'd share....

She sure was. We were late getting there - and were scheduled to have her driving for us. We got another guy, cannot remember his name, cause we told the receptionist we were looking for M driving schools....The guy who drove us is an M driving instructor...
