    Im going back next year. One of the best bits was getting pished on the ferry there. Newcastle to Amsertdam.

    I would recommend Center Parcs. About 15 miles from the ring. Well its about 4 but the road length is 15 miles. Get your own villa, supermarket and a swimming pool.

    Cant wait!

    Agreed. Got back yesterday. Sunday was closed no end of times cos of a few fatal accidents... Had one guy crash right infront of me... Had to swerve round him. That was pretty scary. Was an amazing weekend though!

    I spent £370, inc ferry, a night in kent, 3 nights at the ring, food, diesel, 4 laps and shedloads of beer. Had a passenger though so we split it between two...
