the reception…



pole position!



a short briefing before the fun starts…



this is a 360 degree panoramic view of the brake-test-track. Beware: it’s huge!



the gyro…drive as fast and as safe as you can … the white area is slippery … was especially fun to drive with disabled ESP … in the front of the picture you can see the cars waiting for their turn.

the AUDI A3 2.0 TDI on the “racetrack”

average speed: 184,2804
top speed: 221 km/h
duration: 00:10:04
track length: 30,51 km

It was real fun to drive this car. 140hp is well…where fun starts. So this car has an amazing acceleration…the top-speed is, well okay but not great compared to the BMWs or MBs. Actually I had the chance to drive the A3 on a real race track which doubled the fun after switching the ESP off…pictures of that, soon…

ADAC Driver Training Trip vehicle

Tomorrow I am in Berlin for one of those ADAC Driver Trainings. And SIXT was so great to organize that Audi A3 (2.0 TDI) for me… when I called them this morning they were short on cars… but they managed it… hail SIXT! 😉



So expect some more words on the A3 and a race track feature.

the way forza is meant to be played…

It would be great if this special build of Forza Motorsport would be available publicy…but unfortunatly it isn’t. Anyway this is the setup I would like to play in the future.

“The above photo shows you the proper way to experience Forza. Yea, those are all DLP screens
with the racing wheel. This is being played on a private build of the game that supports multiple screens. It’a a great way to experience one of the best racing games to come to Xbox.”

Force Dynamics Racing Simulator

Oh this is soooo crazy… for just $20.000 you get a force-feedback Seat and Wheel that deserves the name:



“The Force Dynamics 301 is a high performance, commercial quality motion system. It is one of a tiny handful of motion simulators designed from the ground up for racing simulation, and its performance far exceeds that of systems costing many times more.”

Kenseth fights off Kahne to win at Rockingham

Ach verdammt…




“Matt Kenseth shrugged off NASCAR’s new points system — partially designed because he won just one race last season en route to the series championship — by nipping rookie Kasey Kahne at the finish line of North Carolina Speedway on Sunday to win the Subway 400, his first victory in nearly a year. “

Earnhardt Jr. gewinnt erstes Saisonrennen.

“Dale Earnhardt jun. hat das erste Saisonrennen der NASCAR-Serie für sich entschieden.



Der Sieg des Amerikaners bei den Daytona 500 wurde von einem schweren Unfall von Michael Waltrip überschattet. Der zweimalige Sieger des Rennens fuhr auf Brian Vickers und Robby Gordon auf, bevor sich sein Auto im Infield mindestens fünf Mal überschlug.

Waltrip überlebte den Unfall unverletzt: “Mir geht es gut. Alle großen Fahrer haben sich schon überschlagen. Jetzt bin ich auch einer von ihnen.””
