  • 24h Le Mans


  • Porsche Museum Stuttgart
  • BMW Museum, Welt and Group Classic Munich
  • Renault Museum Sinsheim
  • PACE Museum Dortmund


  • Goodwood
  • Renault & Alpine meeting Aix-les-Bains (booked and approved for this year)

Driving experiences

  • Getting rides in various types of race cars (only got one in an Gr. N/A M3 E30 around the Nordschleife so far)
  • Getting a ride in a rally car (maybe going to happen this year)
  • More track days (Bilsterberg, Spa, Zolder…just to name a few)
  • Touristenfahrten Nordschleife (did a lap with my Peugeot 306 XSi back in 2007 but want to take the Clio there)

  • Visiting and getting a tour around the Alpine factory in Dieppe (that’s where my car got built)
  • Taking some of the Forza devs around a track or on a ride on an empty backroad in my car…haha. :wink:

I’ll maybe add other things that I forgot or that come up in the future.
