It’d been less than a week since the 24-hours of Le Mans when cars hit the track at the 24 Hours of Nurburgring. All that said, the two races couldn’t be further apart. While Le Mans features grandiose factory hospitality fortresses and F1 drivers as flag wavers, the Nurburgring is more for the masses. Barbecue scents and makeshift dance club dub step waft over the forest and graffiti coated track, while an eclectic mix of classes mean everything from FIA GT3 cars to home-built cars not much further developed than a top-tier LeMons program.

No doubt about it, the first place we always go when we arrive at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt is building A50. Unlike the round glass-enclosed museum mobile with its paternoster car rotisserie, Cafe A51 that’ll make you a cappuccino with a four-ring dusting of cocoa, the rather nondescript building A50 is where Audi’s board members work. As such, this is also where they park their cars… just outside the door. More…
