For me walking between the stands and workshops is at least as much interesting as the races (not only because of possible encounters like the two from the last picture of the previous tip!!!); there is a special ambience, a special busy ambience. And I was amazed how people worked here with high technology and also very basic work; I even remembered when I was “tuning” my Citroen 2CV, 25 years ago, some gestures are still the same, only the cars are not (really not!) the same.
main picture : Cleaning tyres with hot burning iron! Did you think of doing it on your own tyres?
picture 2:Preparing the car, changing wheels, checking brakes. . . .
picture 3: A view through spokes of a wheel, and busy mechanics.
picture 4: What is this guy checking in the engine?
picture 5: Cleaning the wheels has to be done very carefully it seems.. . . .
Entrance fees: from 10 to 50 Euro per day, depending where and when.
