Still my favorite video of Pikes Peak. 3:28 is awesome.

Does that count?

What cars you going to drive Naldo; hired I presume?


In Europe better drive diesel. Cheaper than normal unleaded fuel.

Maybe try new Audi A8? Or Merc S-class? Since you got plenty of choices. From what I knew when I went to Frankfurt, you go to Frankfurt international airport, then hired car with sixt, it's the cheapest among all rentals. You can pick from SUV(Merc ML, BMW X5, X6), or sedan such as luxury cars in above or 3 series, 5 series and etc. Basically just pick it out and you drive.

Last time I rented BMW 525i, it's gasoline engine, but pretty powerful. Then changed to new 730D, which has plenty of torque-power-economical. Might hire another diesel sometime in the future.

Nurburgring Nordschleife for sure. even with public traffic, you can go 9 tenths or 9.5 tenths a lot of the way. Even the forests west of Frankfurt are great and the locals are afraid to give you a run.

The loop around the NSW alpine area is awesome. Haven't done Vic. or Tas. but one day I will.

And pikes peak looks bloody awesome too. Check out this run by Loeb. I took two things from this video, 1) it takes balls to keep the accelerator down when you're flying at the edge of a mountain at 200km/hr and all you see is sky. 2) Rallying is a spectator sport. you have to have as much balls to stand at the edge of the road when cars are flying past you at the limit.

Last year I did Autobahn in a 13 year old bmw 323is 5 speed manual. It's kind of cool to be sitting on the redline in 5th gear at 230km/h. I actually still have this speed showing as the maximum recorded by my GPS unit.
I then hired a Suzuki swift sport from rent de racecar at the nurburgring and completed 4 WET laps. A recording of this is saved on my phone which was in a cradle mounted to the windscreen.

If I get back over there I would like to check out Spa.
