PTR RingºRacer/Rock Am Ring


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

Last weekend I visited Rock Am Ring at the Nuerburgring in Germany. As the concerts are right at the Nuerburgring and thus being close to the RingºRacer all weekend I just had to bring my camera and take some pictures of it.

 

Since it was the 25th anniversary of Rock Am Ring Kiss played on thursday night. Just one stage was open that night and everybody was going to see Kiss so soon it was very crowed at Centerstage. I don't know the exact numbers but it must have been around 60.000 - 70.000 people.

 

I'll just show some pictures of the thursday night....

And this was our view. With in the background the long straight of the old Nurburgring.

Germans like to play with wood.

I wonder when it will open.

Festival people are nice.

But first more important things.

IMG_0001_12.jpg.9552c33f5e6a9cb561e75745fae7c090.jpg

Like letting see the other stages of Rock Am Ring.

IMG_0001_13.jpg.be660f146adeb4d59f93e1e5361fddfd.jpg

At this tent you can get high with crazy Germans.

Let's look inside if everybody's still alive.

IMG_0001_15.jpg.1165c9c1b4c69d4c26f0296e4a31cdc0.jpg

Cheers.

IMG_0001_16.jpg.08e85057fbeb2fe029b8f63214d3fac7.jpg

Excitement.

IMG_0001_19.jpg.4882d8a42a24fce1b3d8f4755ed33812.jpg

That drop looks pretty steep.

IMG_0001_18.jpg.b50f8976474d517bc034fa974f98e7a1.jpg

Nice sexy curves.

Launch strip.

IMG_0001_20.jpg.7495c40ea966285ef099e595a8edf687.jpg

I had to climb one of that toilets to take the previous picture.

IMG_0001_92.jpg.b02a3f8845f9cb965daf61e04bc8eb97.jpg

Almost forgot to post the first part of the ride. It get out of the buiding here, turns and get launched in front of the grandstands climb that towery thing and get back into this building again. Simple huh?!?

IMG_0001_22.jpg.a61885a8e5c391b6c2046bda458870d9.jpg

Getting closer to Kiss. Above are the Vips.

IMG_0001_21.jpg.9769f931742c90dffb3ebcd5d9c1b684.jpg

Look at the crowds already. We tried to get so far as possible.

IMG_0001_24.jpg.e7f45c10e92c46899725f4d222e8be27.jpg

Somewhere in the back Kiss is playing.

IMG_0001_25.jpg.c8444a3a679fecb18fe64a0ab7595e3e.jpg

Most of the times we had to watch the video screens.

IMG_0001_26.jpg.31f9555b7a753ba102a2f67dbbb77d83.jpg

Awesome concert.

IMG_0001_27.jpg.49052b9c1b277a66953c8f491cabe915.jpg

Guitar!!!

IMG_0001_30.jpg.ffbcf9949a5856eb291cc3013a8918f4.jpg

Are we excited or what?

IMG_0001_29.jpg.b651c67f37ac032bfc70bc594dcfa445.jpg

We managed to get a bit more in front.

IMG_0001_31.jpg.68e69759e986830f8f0592da1587cb31.jpg

And during "I was made..." he was nice enough to get a bit closer to us.

IMG_0001_34.jpg.a30c98639b300766d2d708175dc98dd7.jpg

and after a long, long night and the sun already coming up again we found our tent back.

Yes I've seen Rammstein. It was yesterday evening and the show is just awesome plus when you're watching the show with 70.000 Germans it's even more awesome.

 

And no they were not testing the coaster. I don't know if there is any testing going on right now but they certainly didn't test during Rock Am Ring.

Great report and pictures Hans.

 

Wow, a lot of great bands were playing at RaR. How was Muse ? And Motörhead ? Do they play the loudest outdoor aswell ?

 

What is there to see at the BMW M Power section ?

Hopefully they'll manage to get Ringracer up and running still this year so that we can ride it still this year.

I had to look back what you meant with the BMW M power section but it's just the name of a grandstand. It will be quite interesting though to visit the new facilities/museum if the coaster is open of course!!!

 

We skipped Muse to see Volbeat. I've seen Muse several times before and I don't like their last album either.

 

Motorhead is the loudest band on earth indoor and outdoor. We watched the show from a distance cause they played from 01:45 AM - 03-00 AM and I wanted to drinks some beers too.
