I thought I'd make some shots of the buildings of the town.

It was a joy driving behind S14 Dokr's E30 M3. What he lacked in HP he made up in weight.

I had a great day. As I was in the 2nd group I didn't get a chance to see the CSL and Porsche in action. I hope in the future I will have that privilege.

Here some stats:
- The tour was 240 miles.
- I drove a total of 830 miles in the 2 days.

Oh, before I forget: Here a short video. I had hoped to have a little fun on my way home but it was not to be.
