    Bavarian drive out 7th August to 14th August

    Not quite as epic as Norm's event, but I thought it worth posting up a couple of pictures from my latest foray into Bavaria. For once no snow is involved, its the first time I've ventured down this way in the summer

    On Wednesday I made my way down to Folkestone and managed to get an earlier than planned train over the water:

    Then it was a quick run through France, Belgium and an overnight stay just outside the Nurburgring, no public sessions were running that evening which was probably a good thing as it was at the end of a long day's driving. Will be back though to do a lap or ten at some point.

    Day two I made my way down to friends just outside Kempton via the B500 road that runs from Baden Baden, reputed to be one of the 10 best driving roads in Europe and it was certainly fun to drive. Kempton would be base for the next few days, so popped over to visit Gunther at CCKempton Kit Cars, it was good to see Rob'e ex Red ListerBell in the showroom.

    Today (Sunday) I took a picture halfway up this mountain pass which sits on the Austrian border:

    I guess the weather was somewhat better than you have been having in the UK (sorry Norm) as this was the view:

    Small world - went to Cars'nCoffee in Liverpool today and spent most of it chatting to guy from Germany who works at BAC Mono cars in Speke who knows Gunther as someone who can get cars homologated/registed in Germany. I think he also wants him to sell his LB to a client he has in Connecticut!

    Good grief, where's the challenge driving around on dry sunny roads... (slight twinge of jealousy...)

    Looks like loads of fun - looking forward to the next set of pics But what was that car in front of you on the train? And, is your trip sponsored by LB, with all the "ListerBell" logos on your car?

    " But what was that car in front of you on the train?"

    I think it was an Audi of around 1964 vintage. There were three of them on the way back to Belgium.

    "And, is your trip sponsored by LB, with all the "ListerBell" logos on your car? now theres a thought, Craig?

    The weather has changed today so it looks like a damp trip back

    I thought it was the Audi "ring" badge I could see on the boot lid, but just couldn't work out the shape. So that's me out of the photo round in the Classic Car Quiz

    Damp trip back? Ha! Come on the next Northern Run and we'll show you "damp" (that'll be the beds...)

    It's a DKW 1000sp

    The 4 ring badge was the badge of 'Auto Union', of which Audi and DKW were one of the four rings each.

    DKW in this instance, stands for "Don't Know What". Thought a 1000SP was a '70's Moto Guzzi tourer though...
