Just thought i'd share some photo's if your bored at work ect.

Couple of track pic's

Shy of 700 all in. Fuel, crossing, hotel, food, breakdown cover ect.
That's all for me and the mrs for 4 days, 3 nights.

I'm in a diesel estate buddy. I don't think 140kg less would of made a difference

Was good fun though. Would like to experience it in the corsa to hold my own against some cars on straights. Maybe one day if I actually pull my finger out

Another convert, we aren't lying when we say it's the best holiday for anyone even with the slightest interest in cars and motorsport, even my mum enjoyed herself.

Col

Looks great! Me and a few lads were considering it for next year but have heard some horror stories about accidents and the costs they incur which has put me off a little. Also trying to fit it in with Le Mans and LA with the Mrs. won't be easy

Crashing can sort wreck you bank balance for sure. Don't go over there thinking your don one. Just enjoy it and take your time and you'll be fine. You don't have to prove anything to anyone.
