All teams got here safely and only a few required the TLC of the service crew just to tickle their tummies and make sure they were all tickety boo. The most challenging issue was an over extending pair of windscreen wipers on a beautiful Mark 1 Mini Cooper which challenged both Gareth and Paul momentarily. A solution though was found and pretty soon the wipers were again behaving themselves.
We went for dinner last night in the Pistonklaus restaurant which is owned by the family of Sabine (she from Top Gear fame). The whole place was a homage to Motorsport and to be fair the food was pretty good too. Most teams decided to stay in the hotel for dinner though and by all accounts it was pretty good fare too.
We have rain today here at the Nurburgring as we depart for Munich so a steady pace ahead of the service van route will see all teams make the 350 mile journey in 6 or so hours. We’re heading on even further though to Trento for some final preparation ahead of the entire group of participating Minis arriving on Thursday midday for scrutineering and registration.
