Title: Turbos at the NURBURGRING
Post by: kerr205 on 22:26, Tue 17 June 2008
Has anyone been to the Nurburgring in their R5s? I go to the ring every year in my company car and am going again next Wedesday but thought I would see if anyone is else has been in a Renault 5.  Its probably not the brightest idea driving to the the middle of Germany from Scotland in a Renault 5 turbo and thought I would ask if anyone has else has braved it or going next week. If not ill keep you up to date on how I get ontaking the 5.

Keep you eyes peeled on RTOC for an August/September trip later this year ;)

I've been there a couple of times now, 1st time in my Raider with 9 other 5 Turbo's.

Everyone got there & back with no problems! I laugh in the face of people now who say these cars are unreliable!!!

Hi, just got back from the ring trip and had a really good time.  The wee turbo served me well. The only thing that happened was a boost hose blowing off whilst hard up the backside of a locally registered 944 Porsche turbo!!!  Great fun and it also looked like everyone had fun in your pictures.
