What does a man do that has no room yet for his permanent slot-track...

... that exactly knows how that track will look like when he's got the room to make it...

...that has to rest and get in his bed early because it's his bachelors-party tomorrow (and needs some sleep to survive that night)...

... that goes to the 24 hours of Spa next weekend... (damn... again no sleep) with also FIA ETCC and Alfa 147 Cup on the programm...

Well... he makes a few pictures with the possibilities he has for now... to make a Spa-testday on 1/32...

Let's see the result (off-course the cars don't match, but the models do drive all in the FIA GT Championship)

The sign that will stand at the gate of my Petit-Spa:


This is the layout of my Petit-Spa like we drive it now:


The pits: every team getting ready for their first test-laps:




Team Marcos:


Team BMW (I painted more details after this photo-session). In the box next to BMW you see the Viper-team standing ready for the car to come in:

Well... I hope I didn't bore you guys with the amount of pictures, but I had fun taking them...

Next weekend in the 1:1 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps I'll take lots of pictures too... If you guys want to see them, I'll post them in the "Events" section.

If you guys want to see some 1:1 pictures of Test-days on Spa... click here...

Greetz and sleep tight... I'll try to do that too... and I'll try to survive my bachelors party tomorrow!

Well, it's simple. You buy a house with a bigger basement.

@ Nuro:

Well... next month our house we're building will be finished, and we can move from the little appartment to our house (with space for a 5m by 2.5m permanent-track)...

And thanks for the congrats... and yes my wife-to-be likes cars in general... once in a while she even races with the slotcars too!

Thanks for the positive replies guys!
I really appreciate this!

PS: I survived my bachelor party, and it was great!!! We left saturday at 5 o'clock in the morning... and I was at home at 11 o'clock sunday morning!

@ FastLucky:

Yes, I'm going to Spa, we'll be there from friday night untill sunday night with our mobil-home... (Or camper, or what do you guys say?) so I can see the qualification of the ETCC's on friday night too...
