Berg Cup Round 1: 06-08-05-11 – Part #1

It’s all about the words he said.  But how can I possibly put into words the epicness that was last weekend at the first round of the Berg Cup in Eschdorf: less than 36 hours, 1000 miles, 3 countries (well, 2 and a Principality), time travel, boat travel the best beer in the universe, great pizza, good times and amazing friends.  That sort of scratches the surface for now, but don’t worry there is going to be a lot of coverage…a lot.

It all started at a little after 2am on Thursday night.  The chariot of choice was and E39 BMW 530D Touring which was loaded up and pointed at Dover.

3 hours through the night later we hit the port, boarded up and left the white cliffs for dead.

Spotted: Brits on tour also making their way to Ze Berg.

By 3pm we were checked in, full of food and ready to rock.  What we found next blew us away.

The sleepy countryside village of Eschdorf was littered with racing cars; Literally dumped up kerbs in the street where people were busy spannering away.  It was totally open too and we were able to walk round and soak it all in.

After years of drooling over these cars on the net we could barely contain ourselves on seeing cars like this Polo:

There is a myth on the internet that the competitors are all very secretive about their cars, but nothing was further from the truth; everyone was happy to talk to us, open up the cars, let us shoot them and even sit in a few of them!

Right, enough chat, here’s some more of the first pics:

This guy was my hero: Record holding 750bhp AWD Porsche being set up in the street and the whole time he was wearing a Ralph Lauren Shirt and Brogues. PURE CLASS.

The attention to detail and level of prep on all the cars was amazing, I don’t usually post more than one or two pics of a car, but for this bunch I’m just going to go for it:

Nurbergring special run out of you garage?  If you ever wondered what living the dream looked like, I’m pretty sure this is it:

More soon…
