Don't know if anyone saw GTV Nutter's post on this post last Friday http://forum.alfa145.com/index.php?showtopic=7524.

As Joel has pointed out, the dates for a proposed return in September are pretty hopeless. There is just no decent time available at all!!

So for anyone who didn't see this earlier post, the dates proposed seem pretty good.

For anyone else who may be interested (I've 'penciled myself in', provisionally as well smile.gif ) the opening hours and suggested travel times are as follows:-

Sat 30/09/06 - 18.30-19.30
Sun 01/10/06 - 08.00-19.30
Mon 02/10/06 - 13.00-19.30
Tue 03/10/06 - 08.00-19.30

The proposed 'travel out on the Saturday, return on the Wednesday' arrangement sounds good to me and allows for plenty of track time......as it's not over a full weekend and slightly off-season, it should be quiet on the Monday & Tuesday too!

Anyway.........food for thought.

As I said on MSN, pencil me in. Sounds good to me as long as I have the pennies.

The world is like a ride at an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly colored and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: Is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, 'Hey - don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride...' And we ... kill those people.

Thanks for posting this Paul. I probably would have got around to it myself, eventually....

As already noted, the opening dates for the latter part of this year are pretty crap, and the proposed dates are the only series of consecutive days that seem worthwhile travelling that distance for. In fact, when I originally noted that weekend a few months ago I think the saturday was a full open day too. I hope they don't change the times any further.

Although the date is quite late in the year, and well into autumn, I think there is good chance that the weather will be ok. It is only a week or so later than we went last year, and that was mostly fine. Being late in the season it hopefully shouldn't be too busy either.

It would be nice if we could get a few Alfas there together. As well as the social aspect of the group visit, there are so many more photo/video opportunities available around the circuit with multiple cars/drivers, and it's always nice to have such a record of your visit.

Hope to see some of you there smile.gif

Cheers,
Joel.

PS. I'm hoping to take the 75 V6 (if it's working at the time).

I've booked the time off work with the intention of going, but not looked into ferries etc yet.

I'm probably not i'm afraid. Sweens was definitely going last time I spoke to him.


Make sure you can come in May though, hopefully we should have a few going (and I am determined to go)

Oh yes, I'm still going. Time was booked off work ages ago, as was the Pension Daniels once more. Car was freshly MOT'd last week, so barring any car calamaties, it's all go!

Daaaveee said he wouldn't be able to make it and I'm pretty sure that my official Nurburgring photographer biggrin.gif , Hazeyblue said he wouldn't be able to come either sad.gif.

AJ did express an interest, not sure what the latest is though.....

Insofar as ferries are concerned, I'm aiming to travel with Norfolkline again. I think it was £48 return, last time I checked...

Well I'll volunteer to be the official trip photographer this time, but I hope you know how to use a camera as well! I might even let you use my new Nikon to take some pics of me on track.

Also, I've now got 2 complete bullet cam systems and a selection of different in-car mounts, so we could get some interesting video footage from various cars coolio.gif

Is that Dover/Dunkirk? Let me know when you book your ferry; we could maybe try and arrange to meet up at Dover and go in convoy from there.

Shame about the drop-outs. My brother and a couple of friends were 'definitely going to come' but have all now decided against it for various reasons sad.gif

Yeah, that's the one, it's a 2 hour crossing though, but you save a bit of time at the other end. I'm prepared to put up with the slightly longer travel for the cost involved.

Norfolkline do seem to insist on a minimum 1 hour check-in time but last time there were loads of people checking in just before the ferry so don't know how rigid they actually are! unsure.gif

Convoy sounds fine, we did similar last time, although once into Belgium, I dropped into my own 75mph pace, the others headed off on their own.

Can't argue with you there, J! blush.gif tongue.gif

On the ferry subject, I've just had a quick decko on the Norfolkline site, seems they've had their boats chipped and the ferry crossing has now been cut to 1hr 45min. There are crossings every 2 hours still....

The cost isn't as cheap as when I looked a while ago, but it's the same price as the last trip, £54 return, all-in. smile.gif
