Nicki Thiim is always a big draw at pit walks and autographs sessions

Garages are open and access to pit walks is free

Fans flooding into the paddock for the autograph session 

Timo Bernhard is a popular local hero

LMGTE Pro was a tight battle

Flags of nations

Precision engineering

A great start to 6 hours of competition

Same in LMGTE

It was a somewhat lonely race for Toyota...

Cloudy skies on race day didn't stop the fans coming

And the sun sets on another 6 Hours of Nurburgring!
