Introduction I'm no good at introductions. I'm Lancia Stratos. You know, at first I just thought Nurburgring was "Just a track". But for some reason, it prompts a lot of crazy things to happen. (Good, Bad, Cleverness) Instead of me posting what I did, I decided to open a thread for anyone to post their story about their adventures within the track. I would like to start off with a story that happened to me yesterday. The Ballad Of The Volkswagen Beetle Oh yeah! Today I had completed my collection! The very last car that has filled the last space of my favorites was a Volkswagen W12 Nardo Concept. My favorite color with my favorite ride! After that purchase, I felt like I had no reason to spend money anymore. But something caught my attention the next time I had arrived at the German car lot. It was a black car. An old one too. It was the Volkswagen Beetle made in 1949. Seen here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JXK63kvUi6U Das auto! This car is a celeb! The talking Volkswagen was availiable for $40,000. (Ouch!) But at least I had 3.5 million dollars in cash. So I decided to drive it in the legendary Nurburgring. I gave it stock tires, Set the difficulty on S rank, and set it on 2 laps. So the race began. But first I looked at the starting grid: 1. Honda Life step Van 2. Volkswagen beetle 49 (Not me) 3. Mazda Carol Deluxe 4. Volkswagen beetle 49 The car was only able to obtain 4 gears at 90 MPH as top speed. It felt boring for a while. But then I switch to cockpit view. It felt very fast and realistic! If only I had 1940's German music it would of been perfect timing. Brakes where never needed except for 1 or 2 parts. Sometimes my car would get stuck at 30 MPH because of a hill or two. My foes where long gone but the other beetle had quite a rivalry with me. He passed me a few times. One time he was 1 second ahead of me. But the carousel and downhills launched me back to first. Now i was finished........with lap one. More than 12 minutes had passed by. The rival beetle was nowhere in sight. 3 seconds was all it took for him to vanish. The beetle had a peaceful drive. A clean lap was a possibilty. And the feeling of seeing the cockpit of a ancient automobile was cool. Seeing the scenery pass by was a great expierence! Finally, lap two has finally came to an end. I finished first. Finishing at a total timing of 25'45.697. Quite an exhausting record. (I must have no life! Heh heh!) Well thats my story for today. Well GT racers, go ahead and post your stories on the famous Nurburgring. Or post what you think about the story. I should try to post up a good story at leadt once a week. But most importantly I would love to hear your stories of the treacherous track in GTPSP. Keep on driving!
