Epic SPA trip (September)

Right then ya bunch of big girls, here is the trip of all trips, A double day @ SPA, you also have the option to pop to the Ring before should you wish, After ringing around I've managed to secure SPA for 240 per car a day open pit, Pit garages are also available @60 each (Hold 2 cars easy), the dates are Sept 8th + 9th to book simply call circuit days on 01302 743827 and Quote 'skylineowners' to get it for that price (the offer is open to EVERYONE), my point of contact was Chris but anyone can take the booking.

Next is the Accommodation and found these (which you can book on the link, and pay later) http://hotels.hotels-n-europe.com/ho...e_back_to_sr=1 they have 2 double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom and should you wish a double sofa bed as well so can sleep 8, I'm heading out for sunday so for the 3 nights its 214 for the whole Chalet (So with 6 of you in it is 35.67 each for the 3 nights, F'in cheap), so get booking people, I'm going out with Norfolkline dover-Dunkirk on Sun 7th @10am and returning on wed 10th @2pm

SPA normally gets booked up pretty quickly, and Im not sure how long Circuit days will hold the price, but you could still come out for the trip and passenger rides.

You can do both days as most are doing the Mon and Tues, total cost will depend on how many passengers you take to share ferry, fuel etc and how many people you share the chalet with.

Im towing my skyline out so sharing the costs with my passengers, they are all paying 200 which covers fuel, ferry, accommodation, 50 towards passenger laps and 15 towards a shop at ASDA, I'm obviously covering the 240 a day on track and skyline fuel.

Yeah theres a petrol station on site, I stop just outside Antwerp to fill up my tow vehicle on the way and way back as diesel is only 1.13 at the current exchange rate which saves on costs.

Right so far I know members off here that have booked are Webcam007, Myself, marco151 and Rob_c, My two cousins in there track MK3 Golf VR6, 306 GTi-6 and friends in their E36 M3 and Audi S3 have also booked in.

Would be great if more would book in, its going to be a riot, we've so far booked 3 Chalets all sleeping between 6-8 of us, so plenty of evening BBQ's and Beers.
