Congratulations Kelvin and Christof! Excellent job guys! Just finishing is a feat itself. I'm more impressed with Chris than myself. I don't have the fortitude to try something as difficult as completing the German GP in a BRM.

Last year I tried to fall to the back of the field in the GP and take it easy early in the race. That didn't work well at all. This time I tried to hold my position and be careful. It was a lot of fun trying to keep up with Lasse and Radek. I tried not to do anything too stupid, but I wasn't going to back down either. My consistency is still lacking though. I needed to be able to make mistakes regularly without causing a disaster. Once Lasse and Radek retired is was somewhat easy being able to drastically slow whenever I got in trouble.

Lap 8 and 13 were very ugly. I had my doubts I'd finish on lap 8. Lap 13 started very sloppy. Later in that lap I slowed down a few times to relax and rest my aching right foot. I kept my pace up somewhat for most of the race. I didn't want to make the mistake of lulling myself to sleep by being too cautious.

I'm very pleased to complete the entire event. I ran about 8 laps with oAo prior to this event. I did approximately 1000kms at the Nurburgring. I could do it again next weekend if I didn't drive any this week. I love this event.

Thanks guys. It's kind of you to let me participate and I appreciate it.

Big Gratulations to the new "Ringmeister".

A full GP at the Nordschleife is one of best Events with GPL!

Towards the end of this big Race I found myself in third Position (Big Surprise to me). Then a very fast BRM was heading on my back (Even a bigger Surprise to me ). Tryed to defend that 3rd Spot, but Christof was to fast for me. Then in the last lap I overshoot it at Wehrseifen. So I am only best of the rest.

Looking forward to the next "Lange Ringnacht".

In deed, once again what an outstanding event to finish the season
The seven sprint races prior to the GP guaranteed a ton of on track action. Racing on the edge of an emotional rollercoaster, from joy to frustration, from fortune to mishap, quite a thrill!
At about 2.45 am the GP race started ; what an absurd time to start a GP. I was really lucky 'cause I was in the 2nd row on the grid. I took it quite easy in the first 2 laps and settled in for 3rd behind Carsten (Brabham) & Pelle (Eagle). Well, due to the on track mayhem during the first seven sprint races there still must have been some speedy dry or debris out on track in the Hohenrain Schikane . Pelle’s and Carsten’s day ended much too early just at this crucial place , what put me up in the leader’s spot. I still took it easy and tried to control the gap to Radek in 2nd with lap times at 8:12 min/lap. That wasn’t fast enough, so I speeded up the pace to 8:07 on lap 7. I still wasn’t driving on the edge but this GPL marathon (racing for over 7 hours) left its marks mentally and even physically . The lack of concentration caught me on lap 8 as I entered the 2nd lefthander after the Karusell. Glad that I didn’t hit a thing, but I dropped back to 3rd behind Radek and Gregory right at the half way mark of the race. First I tried to keep up with the leaders pace, but I had to realize that I was much too exhausted to race safely to the end at that kind of speed (low 8min/lap) . What also came to my mind was the discussion about fuel consumption prior to the start. One of the Brabhams started with 155 liters, …dear, I started the race with only 148 litres in my Eagle and I suddenly had the bad feeling that I miss calculated the whole thing some how.
Anyway, still 7 laps to go, the frontrunners with an outstanding pace, my body more and more acing (neck, shoulders, arms, knees and back) and my mind was playing tricks on me with the uncertainty of running out of fuel . So I made the decision to bring home the Eagle in one piece with a conservative pace
--> Main target: Finish the GP
Finally I saw the chequered in 2nd to overcome all obstacles That also feels like a victory. Back in the garage my mechanics checked the amount of fuel left in the gas tank: Amazingly I did the 15 lap GP with a total of only 129 liters . guess I won the golden pollution badge in this race. But to be honest even if I had decided to speed up the pace after midway I was mentally and physically too worn to do so .

Grats Gregory!! Awesome race! Very smart, with an outstanding pace.

Grats Chris! Very strong performance to finish the GP in 3rd with a BRM

All the credits to David for hosting this spectacular event! You are a real treasure.
Looking forward to C U on track next time guys, Kelvin

PS: still putting together some RingN8-GP stats, ..stay tuned ….

Hi Folks,

first of all sorry for the lengthy delay , but finally as promised here are some statistics in reference to the famous Nürburgring night GP :

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to find any race results prior to 2004 .
- There was no Long Night Of The Ring event in 2003 .
- In 2004 the RingN8 GP was cancelled due to track time overrun caused by the earlier races. The officials, as most of the drivers didn’t get the permission to start a GP after 4.00 am .
- In 2006 no one survived the mighty 15 lap greenhell rush! According to rumours, the last driver out on track was too bored to race to the finish and stepped out of the car .

Here’s a review of all the RingN8 GP survivors sorted from fastest to slowest:
1. Carsten Theile 2012 119m00.225s
2. Carsten Theile 2011 119m12.517s
3. Gerd Höfferer 2007 121m46,497s
