    Went to lunch with Peter but lost them while trying to park. So Assi Bill me and Marvin ate in downtown Bruhl. The Main Street was decorated with tons of holiday shops and then we ran into some other Brazilians. Plus it was hailing!!!











    The pit area is set up for business now!





    We are the German Open and ready to go. We think!


    A short dinner break and the it’s back to working on race cars!!!




    Now where are Les and Jeff?

    Do you have to pass a breathalyzer before they let you on the track?
    I like long walks, especially when they're taken by people who annoy me.

    Thanks Paul. Great behind the scenes shots of German slot car racing. The food and drink seems to be an integral part of the racing.

    Can we get some back story on the workings of the facility? How it operates and what are the member's responsibilities. Both financial and time wise.
    Don't resist....VOTE !
