Belgian in Zug-area

Hi All,

After a turbulent welcome in the Transportation/Driving subforum (Swiss drivers' license revoked), I'm heading to this section of this board in order to introduce myself.

I'm 27 years old, moved from Belgium to Switzerland for my company. Quite, happy with the move to Switzerland, although weekends are still mostly spent in Brussels with friends and girlfriend.

Hobbies are first and foremost swimming/running and cooking. I'm passionate about cars and drive regularly on track. I love going out to eat, hence I still like to return to Brussels to visit my favorite restaurants.

Welcome to Switzerland Porker. (Did you choose that name because you have a Porsche?)

I don't think Switzerland has any racing tracks, so you're going to have to head north for that pleasure!

Thanks! I've been using that name online for as long as I can remember, no Porsche in my garage at this moment.

Motorsports was banned in Switzerland in 1955 after the disaster during the 24h of Le Mans, this ban has been in place ever since, hence the lack of racetracks in Switzerland. I believe they have allowed some forms of Motorsport since 2007.

I usually go to the Nordschleife or at Spa, both are truly magnificent places.

Re: Belgian in Zug-area

Hello, nice to meet you. I'm an American getting ready to move to Zug, right now I'm in Oklahoma, but I moved here last year from the Netherlands. We will be there in Aug.

Hopefully we can meet for a drink sometime. We have similar interests.
