Doing the second lap of the NurbRing:
we didn't bother leaving our luggages at the hotel, even tho we could have done it>
so we are taking them along on the ride around the famous track
adding more stability to the car, artificially slowing me/holding me back from going too fast :P

and you know what ??
The car didn't suffer anything!!
it was hanging on pretty well, doing around 100mph down the fox hole (if i briefly remember)

we made it alive on my second run on the Ring...

looking forward to the third run, once i let the car cool down just a tad..

Anyhow... you got it! It's a KA

D11-054 is a Hyundai ix20.

And D12-030 reads: "This is why beer is always kept on the lowest shelf in the fridge".

Who, Sabine or Jenna?
Never met personally Sabine (watch a lot YouTube video with her), but run to Jenna one time in 'Coffee Been' near my office.

BTW - like your car color. With retired of Monaco Blue in BMW 3, I found color of your car is close enough
