Glad to hear there is consensus. Nice final blog - well done. That long exposure photo in the Karussell with the lightning in the background is incredible.

Thanks for all the great coverage. Looking forward to doing it all again next year.

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!

that is a really well done documentary. Makes me wish I stayed more brushed up on my German than I am currently!

Excellent as always! I definitely need to get over there for next year's race.

I guess there are a few places where the path takes you away from trackside? And a few roads and bridges? Or is there literally a path the whole way round?

We had a decent map and there is a mountain bike route - but it does not follow the side of the track all the way. At a guess, I'd say 80% is trackside. Main bit away from the track is the hill down to Adenau and then later on the Dottinger straight.

So is it a public place? I didn't know there was a mountain bike route, how long has that been there? It seems to be following it's own route.

The map we have (borrowed !) dates from 2005 and is ISBN 978 386 609 0859 Borch Map. Amazon show it, but out of stock.

So when not much racing was happening, but it is interesting. Guess we need a new map to update it

Looking ahead to 2019, how is the later 24h date (22-23 June) likely to affect the VLN calendar?

Will it be as simple as VLN 3 moving to mid/late April and the Qual race the last weekend of May?

Well I guess some cant wait for the 2019 event. People will come if they can. I think most drivers care more about the 24h event

Yes. Last year or the year before we had 3 (4 including the Qualification Race) races leading up to the N24. It's a bit overkill but VLN will have to schedule its races somehow. Aston Martin showed this year that you don't need VLN to prepare and be a contender (it helps when you're a proper works team, of course).
