    Thank you Manny,

    It was an experience for sure. It was a Wednesday and I took that photo of Senna at 7am.
    I arrived at the track real early and because it was October the air was very chilly for Italy.
    There weren't many people around at that time so I was pretty much alone standing there.

    Who knows what Senna would have accomplished if it hadn't happened.
    He was an incredible driver.

    That memorial statue is right beside the track on the left of Tamburello and on the opposite
    side right behind the Imola track there is a sort of dam. I went there too;

    When I was in Italy this was my rental car (lol);

    When we went to Spa in Belgium my friend and I rented this one;

    The freeways / highways in Belgium don't have any speed limits (just like Autobahn in Germany).
    My friend from Finland didn't have a licence so I had to do all the driving. I was doing ~160km/h and
    that made us the slowest car on the road. Everyone went faster than us, the pace was incredible.

    And the Belgian roads. I remember they were so beautiful, hills going upwards for hundreds of metres and
    then down again. Thick, huge trees lining the freeways making it seem like you were driving inside the
    forests. Amazing landscapes around Spa and Malmedy.

    Their sizes. They were as big as dinner plates. :eek:

    That bridge is only 2km from the Volvo with a toilet inside. :)

    I stood at each of these places and shot the other side. It was a grind getting up on that hill.

    What you needed was an extremely long selfie stick. It would have saved the trip. :p

    I see all your tall buildings are roughly the same height. Is there some restriction?

    None that I know of. What you see there is only a small suburb though.
    There are taller buildings closer to the city.

    No, I think he's saying some odd translate version of "Good job". Don't see any trolling here.

    Single post so far and his sig is a link to a company flogging watches. Not trolling, more spam, IMHO.
