    I bet I've spent almost as much on the track car as you have on the S3 :P Not that it comes anywhere even close in terms of 'niceness'

    You will see me over the weekend chaps, I'll wave as I go past! :D

    That is a fair comment. I would like to have a track project though. I'd either use the S and strip it then buy a cheap daily or buy an A3 like you have and strip it.

    Ok people, I think we should start looking at booking the ferry soonish.

    Prawn, you wanted a really early crossing so let me know what time suits you again.

    I reckon 6am is the one to go for dude!

    We got the 10am last time, and we didn't arrive at the Burgstube until about 8pm or so by the time we'd had a few stops en route.

    if we get the 6am, 2 hour crossing, plus the time diff, that gets us into France at 9am, so should see us at the Ring by 3pm, perfect time to check in, chill out for a few hours, then go down for a spot of Friday evening TF

    2pm ferry home on the Monday should suit, as we wouldn't need to leave until about 8am, then a nice steady cruise back to the ferry port

    eek.

    that mildly worries me, as the ferrys I was looking at were 0600 and 1400 or 1600, Dover to Dunkirk with Norfolkline

    Who have you booked with dude? and where from/to?

    hahaha. you mong!

    the whole point of the dover - dunkirk is that you get an hours less driving in france, and use the long boat trip to get to know everyone you're going with

    haha, see if you can change it mate. Mine was the same price with Norfolkline :P

    As far as ASN people go it's a bit unknown. There's you and me then 5 of my mates and 1 of your mates. S3 Baby is about 95% so there might be 3 of us

    With any luck the 8P boys will come too as there is a thread in there now too.

    My list of things to get done before the trip grew longer after my trip to Bill's on Friday. It's a race against time now.

    good man

    we went to be on NORFOLKLINE (who are now DFDS seaways)

    0600 outbound from dover to DUNKIRK

    1400 return from dunkirt to dover

    Doesn't matter if we miss the 1400 return, as they'll just put us on the 1600

    I dont think they are that strict to be honest. I'm sure you could just call them and notify them if the details change before we go.

    Tam and I will be coming round the other side of the M25 from Dartford so the only road on route is the A20. We can meet at the services somewhere.
