awesome shots, thanks for sharing! Looks like you can get some really great views even with a photo pass?

Edit: you got the pass for the lead

Thanks! Yeah it's possible to get some nice shots there without accreditation. Granted there are a few superb places you couldn't get to without a bib.

But out on the Nordschleife you're right against the fence - nice and close to the action. So you can either stick your camera up to the fence, or there are actually lots of photography slots in the fence to shoot through. Very cool in that sense.

The Nurburgring is so different to any other race track. You photographers must have a field day

All photos on www.gt-report.com from Marcel Wulf are taken without accreditation. And they are some of the best you'll find from the Nordschleife with or without accreditation.

Speaking of GT REPORT and follow-ups, here's my interview with Fred Makowiecki and Patrick Pilet: https://www.gt-report.com/2018/05/16...ver-the-limit/

In a neighboring forum this was shared today.

I totally have no idea who made this, but it's superb. Albeit showing 2017 footage, it captures the event really good.

Cool reports, btw!

First few photos from the race; more will be added over coming days.

All without accreditation. Having now walked the full Nordschleife (Saturday), I have a few more good spots for future visits.

Haven't seen anybody comment, so I'll lob in an additional thought - really preferred the podium approach of the last few years to this year. The separate podium stage further down beyond pit lane kept the crews further away from the cars, kept the fans a bit further away, and took away some great photo ops. The elevated cars on boxes was always cool. The shots from on top of the suites looking down over the cars, teams and drivers were always cool. If I get a vote, I'd say go back to the way it was done last year for the podiums.

No one has commented on that because everyone agrees this year's podium was a mistake.

Here's Christian Krognes' final blog on the N24: https://www.gt-report.com/2018/05/20...-n24-the-race/

A bit later than planned because he went straight back to work on Monday morning
