    All I've got to do is pack my bags and get some music on my iPhone. Just out of interest Nick, how much space does a Harry's lap timer lap take up on your phone?

    that depends entirely on how quick you are my friend

    As a rough guess, allow 1gb for a 10 minute lap.

    Well, that didn't go exactly as planned did it lads.....

    2 track closures Friday night, 6 track closures saturday, and I think 5 closures on Sunday.

    Westy managed 2 laps total, I think Tam managed 2, I managed 5, and Dad did 3. Andy got 4 in the volvo, although it hardly worked for a full lap.

    Bob managed 0.4 laps before remodelling the armco and earning himself a £3500 Bill, as well as a written off leon, then on Sunday I was first on scene and had to marshall for a fatal accident where a guy was thrown 20m from the back window is a clio 172, before dying on the floor in the woods.....

    Not a weekend I am EVER going to foget. Pretty tough one infact.

    Nice to meet you all lads, top bunch of people.

    Sorry to all those for whom this was a first trip, it is most definitely NOT like this usually.

    Strangest weekend I've ever had fullstop I think! On top of all the closures there was a plague of wasps in Germany, we heard the air raid siren in Adenau go off (apparently to alert the fire brigade), we had a heatwave followed by torrential rain, I caught German man flu, and I broke my toe kicking the car jack box that was on the floor at the end of my bed (pic to follow)!

    Edit. Here's the pics:





    It was great to meet you all, top bunch of lads and we all had a fair bit of fun off the track. I got to see some new spectator areas and also went to the top of the castle (what a view). Did the new museum and GP circuit so I saw a fair few new things.

    Next trip we'll have to seriously think about a mid weeker to avoid all the carnage!

    Looks and sounds like you lot had an eventful weekend!

    Westy, the only consolation is that it was your clutch foot, rather then the accelerator/brake foot

    Me and a few of the local lads here are wanting to go too next year... so many strange ideas on price of the trip though...
    Some who have been say £1000 for a weekend?
    Others claim about £500??
    Is there any idea on a planned date yet??

    I'm waiting till January when they release the 2012 dates then I'll put the good ones up to see what people fancy. After this years fiasco it might be worth planning a mid week trip to ensure plenty of track time.

    As for price, £500 is more accurate but I live in the south east of England so getting down to dover is only a short drive. You'd have to do a lot of laps to clock up a £1K bill but i suppose it can be done.

    Well, From the chat we had i thought either a long weekend ( leave thurs and arive home monday evening )
    Although you lads know better than me and midweek til weekend may be better?
    Any of us would probably only do say 5 laps, look around museum and have a few beers,
    I just dont wanna get there and be like a nutter rushing around.
    How many miles ( france to ring and back to france) would you say? Is there a best way of the ferry or tunnel?

    I usually get the tunnel but the ferry is cheaper. This year we got the ferry to dunkirque as it shorterns the amount of driving and was a good chance to chat the the ASN lads.

    It's about 300 miles from France to Nurburg and normally takes about 5 hours in convoy driving sensibly.

    The only issue now with weekends is that the Ring is so popular now that it's packed, and it only takes one accident to shut the track for an hour or so.

    This year the track was shut for the best part of a day after a fatality and I only managed 2 laps all weekend.

    I'll get the dates up as soon as they're on the Nurburgring website.

    In 2012 I'll be avoiding the weekends after this years anti climax.

    I'll be up for this as usual. I've had a quick look at the dates but I'm looking for week days this year so not sure if Prawn and co would rather do a weekend after last year?!

    I'm look at the summer months from June really as every time I've been in may it's rained.

    When would be good for you Paul?

    When would be good for you Paul?
    Well i havent booked any holidays, I decided this year this came first,
    For some reason i thought people mentioned july kind of time?
    I more than agree a weekend would be mental busy, I was thinking ... if i had to do my own thing i would drag it out over a midweek into maybe a weekend ?
    Im more than happy to listen to those who have been before as i may be way off.

    I ask questions because i change my mind so much. If i ask questions you have already covered... just leave it be?

    I've been going for the last 10 years and it's been getting busier and busier each year. Last year was the worst I've seen but we did pick a bad weekend as there was a super bikes race on the GP circuit.

    I'll have a proper look through the dates again tomorrow and see what's available on the week days. The main issue is that the track is normally only open 5pm-7pm during the week compared to all day at the weekend, but like you say, dragging it into a weekend might be a good idea.
