I am going to have to make it a shorter trip this time, need to get back in plenty of time to prep car for scoobyshootout. Nor sure what the train times allow, but I would probably look to have 2 or ideally 3 good days at the ring.

I am guessing leave thurs night, then have most of fri, sat and sun, go home first thing monday or late sunday,

NeVeTaS
29th March 2005, 18:44
Yup, you can come back any day you like aslong as it's at Calais BEFORE 11am

So you will be best off going home Monday on any train before 11am. Will still be £99 :cool:

NeVeTaS

You still have time. But sonner the better as hotel could fill up. But I reckon you easily have atleast a week before need a firm decision.

Nev, I am booking the hotel first thing tomorrow morning for all the people on your list, however I shouldn't think it will be a problem if anybody is a bit late..... I'm now going fishing :D

PS. Can you just check that it is right, and get back to me.

Speak to you when I get back

NeVeTaS
11th April 2005, 09:26
Just stick on the old bumper, looks cool!

Paul@Zen
11th April 2005, 09:34
I will possibly reschedule the bumper fix for after shootout.

I do intend on being there, and tunnel doesn't need to be booked till nearer the time at those times and price.

Paul@Zen
18th April 2005, 18:09
Christian, I'm not sure if I can make it really. I have my engine to build for SSO, and possibly a gearbox for someone, I have mapping work lined up, a business premises to move into and equip.

Without my engine causing delays I would have gone.

No boss, not yet still under wraps. tongue.gif

I'm waiting till I actually pick it up till I let the 'cat out the bag'. Still need to finalise a few details on the deal.

It didn't cost too much to swap over either :D

All I need to do now is learn how to drive!

Didn't want to spank the m3 before trading it in for the csl so was rather nervous :D :D

You probably lapped me ;) ;)

NeVeTaS
23rd May 2005, 21:08
Well I had my g/f with me and she isn't the greatest fan, so did 1 lap then had to go sightseeing, but she did allow me back later to watch!!

Yep I don't even have a CSL yet, sold my M3 tonight and pick the CSL up on Wednesday! :eek:
