Lots & Lots of Photos

Well, I finally got back to the US from what was supposed to be a 1-1/2 week vacation (and turned out to be 2-1/2 weeks due to the airline problems)... but I've got lots of photos to share...

First, I had a very special opportunity to tour the McLaren Cars facility in Woking, England. This is where they do service on the McLaren F1 supercar. Very very impressive:

Then, it was on to Germany with the primary purpose being to visit the IAA Auto Show. On the Saturday preceding the show, I visited the Nürburgring -- where there was a racing weekend if full swing: European Touring Car Championship, Ferrari Challenge Cars, and Formula Renault (among others):

On Sunday, I decided to check out what was happening at the (my favorite) Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium... I was in luck, as the Ferrari Club of Belgium had rented the track for the day:

Tuesday was opening (Press) day at the IAA show, and also my day to rendezvous with board host CFG. Lots and lots to see at the show:

Obviously, the tragic events in the US this day -- which we learned about while winding down in the "Porsche Bar" certainly dampened the mood of the day.

Finally, on Thursday, a trip down to Stuttgart to check out the latest at the Porsche factory:

I hope you enjoy these -- and don't hesitate to ask if you have questions on any of the photos.
