Processing my pics bit by bit so you can expect more later! Starting off with the Ferrari 250 GT Drogo 'Breadvan'. Amazing and unique car that is impressive on track in every aspect too. Great to see her again and see her being used what she was made for instead of being parked in a museum!

Today's special: M1's in action!

Widebodied Group 4 Schnitzer Turbo M1 as driven by Hans Stück back in the day.Weight and turbo lag get in its way but once it gets going... but in race 1 it became 3rd behind a 'stock' M1 and Johnny Cecotto in his E30 M3. In race 2 it was fastest but only by one tenth of a second.

Special on the Jägermeister Group 5 car, pity about the early retirement because of gearbox problems...

Hmmmm, full bodykit, M3 mirrors, E30 dash and perhaps M50 fitted judging from the exhaust...

Suppose that's the most expensive postcard you have ever bought :lol:

Those pictures are just stunning. I was wondering what camera and lences you are using?

Thanks guys! I'll post some more later, and there will be a report in BMW Car Magazine, probably the next issue

Equipment is advanced indeed, Nikon D300 and professional AF-S lenses: 2.8/17-55mm, 2.8/70-200mm, 4.0/300mm. But for 'everyday' use there's good equipment for a lot less money as well, for example Nikon's 18-200mm VR really is a versatile piece of quality that I use on normal road trips and holidays and I'm already very satisfied about that one, for a fraction of the money the professional lenses are costing.

As for the postcard, there's a nice story to it and I was happy to receive it. It all started with some playing with a nice German Ferrari Daytona and we did abt 200 kmh for a long time. This (Dutch! :hammer ) idiot decided to jump in between and stay in the left lane for too long. On another picture you can see the Daytona up front even. Anyway, due to impatience (clearly visible why) I was now fined for tailgating but the fine is far less than the one I'd have received if this car was paying attention... then I'd probably have exceeded the local speed limit by a lot! So, pity about the money but it could have been worse.

Gerwin and I tried to capture the sound of all these amazing vintage BMW racecars in action at this year's OGP. Love these sounds!
