Yep, I just can't help myself, I'm going again this year Razz

So as I was looking into doing an October trip, Stu asked if I could pop a thread up on here to get some interest.

After a mid November trip last year, I'm keen to a more 'off season' date again this year, the benefit being a quieter track than the August / September rush but still a fair chance of decent weather. There's also potential to get cheap laps on Ebay before they run out at the end of the year.

Having looked at the calendar and ferry prices, I propose a Sunday to Sunday as follows:

Sunday 14th - Drive to Dover for 4pm ferry to arrive in Dunkerque for 7pm. Check in to F1 Hotel. Evening in Dunkerque town.
Monday 15th - Drive to Adenau via Spa. NS open 12:30 - 7pm.
Tuesday 16th - Day to explore local area. NS open 5:30 - 7pm.
Wednesday 17th - Day to explore local area. GP circuit open 6 - 7pm.
Thursday 18th - Visit Cologne / Dusseldorf / Stuttgart / go karting. NS closed.
Friday 19th - NS open 2:30 - 7pm.
Saturday 20th - NS open all day.
Sunday 21st - Drive to Dunkerque for 4pm ferry to arrive in Dover for 5pm. Drive home.

We will be staying in the Hotel an der Norschleife in Adenau, on the trackside. Breakfast (all you can eat) is included in the price. Room prices vary but will be between £30 and £40 per night per person. We will split the total between us.

Ferry cost is £58 return per car.

Total costs (going by 30mpg in the S2000 including the UK driving, plus extra for the track!)
Fuel = £280/car
Hotels = £230/person
Ferry = £58/car
Laps x4 / GP Circuit pass = £140/car
Food / spending money = £200ish/person

1 person in a car alone = £900
2 people in a car (splitting fuel/ferry/laps) = £670 each

This is an optimistic estimate, it could be a fair bit less depending on your fuel economy or how much you spend!

As I've done before, I'll give a deadline to book a ferry and once these are booked I'll take a £50 deposit for the hotel rooms.

As such, I'll give you til the end of May to decide if you want to come, start booking ferries in June and give until the end of July for hotel deposit.

I'll also have a passenger seat going spare in the S2000 Wink

Add your names...

1. James + Tom - S2000
2. Stu + ? - Golf
3. Ed C + ? - DC2?
4. Rich - MX-5
5. Matt - MX-5
6. Ed A - Megane?
7. Adam - MR2
8. Sam
9. Josh

There's a few more on the list now.

I'll email Eddy about booking some rooms in a couple of days time and see what deposit he wants.

I'd start thinking about who's going with who now, so we can book the ferries and everything Smile

I'll also stick it on Facebook so that everyone can see what's going on as I've got one friend definite and another who I think is about 90% sure.

Hotel now booked, this will be €219 for the week per person. We will have 3 twin rooms and one apartment for 4 (though I expect this will be the basement suite and will sleep 6 if we have any more coming).

Please can you let me have a £30 deposit towards this by the end of June, meaning you will need to take roughly £150 / €180 to pay the remainder.

Paypal is james AT topalwaysdown.co.uk

Cheers Adam, route will be this - Link

Out via Lille to avoid the Brussels traffic, then Spa and the back roads to Nurburg
Back through the Eifel forest via Monschau (I've not driven this yet but been told it's a good one) and then the quickest route via Brussels which should be quieter on the weekend.

Excellent, that's all of us booked (and I'm on the right ferry now... haha)

Only thing left to book in advance now is the F1 hotel in Dunkerque. They only do twin rooms or doubles with a bunk over the top, so unless two of you are particularly friendly enough to share a bed we're going to need three rooms at £20 each.

I don't know if two of you want to book rooms yourself or would you prefer if I booked all three and we split the cost between us (£12 each).

If so, any preference to twin or double and bunk rooms?

I've just had a thought before I book the F1...

As it stands we arrive in Dunkerque at 7pm and will go straight to the F1 and have the evening to spend in the town. The next day we'll have four and a half hours driving plus a stop off at Spa. Depending when we leave the F1 we should arrive in Adenau around 4pm and there's a possibility that we can get a lap of two in the evening once we've emptied the cars.

Just considering staying in Belgium, somewhere like Charleroi. It would mean a two hour drive after the ferry so we'd arrive after 9pm. It would be about £11 each rather than £8 but would mean a two and a half hour drive the next day. We could stop at Spa in the morning and arrive at Adenau early afternoon comfortably in time for a couple of laps.

Pros: More lap time of the 'Ring, shorter drive on the Monday
Cons: Longer drive on the Sunday, no evening in Dunkerque, slightly more expensive

Whats the score with high octance fuel? Are shell garages as frequent as in the uk?

I knows its a pain but ill need fuel around every 200 miles...

Is that an 'only just' 200 miles, or a comfortable 200 miles? I've researched Shell garages in Belgium and found one on the way there about 200 miles from Dunkerque and the same on the way back. These should both sell 99 octane. There's no Shell anywhere close to Nürburg but there's two stations there that sell 98 or 99. Should be fine if you can definitely do 200 miles of motorway. In the UK we'll fill up in Folkestone at the Shell.

I put together a list of meeting places for the drive down which I'll post tomorrow as it's saved on the PC at work. I take it you and Woz will be coming round the M25 clockwise?

Quick list of essentials to take are:

Clothes bag
Wash bag
European travel kit
Headlight deflectors
Breathalyser
Trolley jack
Chargers
European plug adapter
Camera
V5 / MOT / insurance / driving licence
Ferry booking / passport
Euros
Oil / water / basic toolkit
Sat nav
Helmet

20 days to go! Maybe slightly early but I’ve been looking at the convoy for the Sunday morning. We need to be in Dover by 3:00pm. I’ll be leaving the house just after 9:30am (as soon as the Korean GP is finished!)

Matt – I’ll meet you at Leigh Delamere services on the M4 (first one past Bristol) at 11:00am
Rich – We’ll meet you at Clackett Lane services on the M25 at 13:15pm
Adam and Woz – We’ll meet you at Maidstone services on the M20 ( at Junction 8 ) at 13:50pm

We’ll convoy down to Junction 11 and stop at the Shell to fill up. It’s 205 miles from here to Spa where I’m aiming to reach to fill up again, though there’s another Shell 20 miles back in Liege if we need it.

We should then reach Dover for 3:00pm
