    some stress on very narrow roads.... we had to go back , we had missed a check point. Pic was taken by a marshall , we should have come and stopped from the left side :D

    here we had to return as we had no exact distance ( copilot did not correctly tim the tripmaster at zero). We had to take a right turn at 1.85 km but there were 3 possible streets on the right side to take in not 100 meters apart.... That was just after the start of a special ... so the pics from the organisation. :oops:
    It's fun but one must always be alert, those roadbooks are full of tricks....

    on 17 februari we do again the " Ronde door Vlaanderen" rally , last year there was still some snow ...it was a long one, +500 km in 1 day .... all small roads , also gravel. To drive it is nice but for the copilot it is alot reading and fatigue...

    That front spoiler didn't last a year ... i had to cut it up to half the air inlets , i was tired of repairing it :)
    As you can see we were experimenting with LED lights... but are now more and more forbidden by organisations.
    And it's not ideal... they are indeed amazingly bright but once after a special stage , driving your OEM headlights is as using candles... you see nothing , difference is to big for the eyes ....old eyes in my case :(
    Advantage of LED is also the alignment doesn't matter that much .... there's light all over the place .

    so... back to the old school Hella's... and alot nicer !

    "Routes de Vosges" in France... nice scenery ! Drove it 3 times with my wife as copilot ( in a easyer class "amateurs", not "experts" which is to difficult navigation ) . Sadly she get's sometimes a bit sick of reading rodbook in a fast turning car... as many people do .

    No fine deQuincey , you may return . Ofcourse the time you loose that way is difficult to recuperate... at the finish you pay for it :eek: That was a small road , so we had to drive a km untill we could make a U turn. Ofcourse the sequence of the stamps matters... so if you get a stamp it's no use to return for the previous if you missed that one. Missing a stamp has more penalty than being a few minutes to late.
    All my rims are Schnitzer 8.5 " x 17" ET13 , tires 245/40 ( needed a little bit of fender work )
    The grey ones have wintertires Michelin Alpine
    The black ones Kumho "semi" slicks
    Suspension was custom made by Intrax , all coilovers. en.intraxracing.nl/merken/bmw/e9-cs/1k2-arc/
