    Ive just booked mine. £1300 for 5 people and 3 cars. Ferry back and forth from newcastle and amsterdam and a 6 person villa at sun parks for 5 days.

    Fuel is big expence. Gonna be about 1200 miles for travelling which is about £280 is fuel.

    Ring is gonna be expensive...Cant mind how much but £100+ for me just for ticket and a tank or two so £140

    Food and drink etc needs to be budgeted for but thats really it. £30-£40 per night?

    Everything else is preparation and can be bought in advance and therefore money spreadout.

    it can be done cheaply, if you camp it makes it WAY cheaper,

    We went over there at easter, friday-Monday, ferry from dover to dunkirk, and not including the breakages I suffered, it cost about £400 all in, eating out all 3 nights, and doing 8 laps

    Damn right, I'd rather spend £50 on camping for £150 on laps, than £50 on laps and £150 on camping!

    I'm pretty much addicted to it now, just wish I could get out there more often!

    Well I managed to cover 1500 miles from when i left home (devon) to when i got back. Thats included all running around we did. It can be very cheap. But if you take passengers you spilt the fuel, plus cost of ferry.

    LOL prawn has failed to mention how much he was butt raped for a cv joints there. hahahahaha, makes me laugh just thinking about it.
