What a trip! Great drive in a great looking Capri. Nurburgring in the Capri must have been awesome, GT3 a nice second best for a trip around SPA :cheers:

Cheers,

The GT3 is an awesome car and although I have never been a Porsche fan, I can appreciate them. It is probably the first car that had brakes that really impressed me and made for a really confident drive.

Maybe the first time I have been in a Porsche and thought I wouldn't mind one of these.

The Capri seemed to attract some good attention which was nice and am glad we did the trip in it and drove it on the ring.

The wheels are image 13 inch 3 piece RS wheels, I have had them for years and was probably a fairly early customer, although I like them I don't think image provide a particularly good service.
