is what new “Kobold-from-the-ashes-racer” played with me, when I took it to Nordschleife on Monday for a test run.
(In two days it’s the Oldtimer Grand Prix Marathon, a long four hour race on Nordschleife. I’m supposed to race there. And so is my Co-pilot: Claudia Huertgen.)
But Rolling poling ain’t funny on green hell!
The car behaved like a big plane rolling and rocking all over the place, almost coming off the track, so Marc took the car straight back to Switzerland.
Which is where it is now.
And I am here.
Tidying my little bureau.
And find this:
“Le Mans Classic 2010” Photographs by: Mathieu Heurtault.
(It’s not the Kobold. It’s a 2.5 S/T)
When the car looks slow, it’s me driving.
When the car looks fast, it’s Claudia driving.
(I’d thought I’d better say it quickly, to save YOU from doing it. To make you look polite. (You’re welcome.)
A year ago.
When there was still a summer to be had.
Not just soaking in the rain and waiting, praying and knitting…..
Want to see more?
So who’s coming to rainy ring at the weekend?
