Gerwin once again was great company, and did a great job, managed to get better shots of several cars than I could! So thumbs up, looking forward to more!

A little E21 intermezzo. At the BMW Clubs parking we found this early 323i in Reseda. Covered 40k kms (so abt 24k mls I guess) and looked very, very original. This meant the car had some traces of use all round but definitely looked very original, unmolested and rust free. Wonderful time travel!

fap.
Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

I really need to get my act together to meet up with people from this forum as well. :lol: But first contact has been established at least. Once I saw a grey 323i with Norwegian plates at the Nordscheife entrance parking I had to assume it's Lars-Nord. Hunted him down when he parked and exchanged few thoughts there, but it's a start... 8) Finally made it to the actual OGP event at the GP track as well. We're usually too busy with our own group, so even when this was my 5th OGP, Saturday was the first time at the actual event.

While track-side, I got to see some Jags, Alfas and glorious F1 cars race.

Some oddballs in the mix with Alfas.

Apparently I never got around to adding some more BMW photos from the 2015 edition this event. Too much work to do a full set but I'll try to come up with some highlights soon, always a worth while event.

As promised, a bit of time travel back to even the 2015 edition of the OGP that we never got to upload as I was too busy moving house back then!

Let's start off with some non BMW stuff... bumping into Jaguar driver and Le Mans winner, the ever friendly Andy Wallace! But did you know he also set the speed record for a production car in the Mc Laren F1 back in the day?!

Image

Jan van Elderen in the wonderful Sierra

Image

Always spectacular and always impressive time travel in the historic F1 series

Image

Greg Thornton satisfied with the warm up lap for the Classic Team Lotus

Image

Love this shot!

Image

Speaking of DRM monsters

Image

Also present was rally champ Stig Blomqvist

Image

BMW action... and BMW derived cars like the Veritas RS

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

What a view! What a noise!

Image

Evening action as well

Image

Speaking of favorites

Image

And we'll have to end with an E21 of course. Only one participating in 2015, Andy Wax/Roland Forsbach in the FW Motorsport 320i
