Nurburgring trip 2018
#61
Hey Guys

Dates are finally up!
http://www.nuerburgring.de/en/events-tic...dates.html

Josh and I are really keen on coming along too, would be coming in the 205 and maybe my bike if the weather is good enough. I would love to catch the end of the 24hr race on 13th May but Im not sure if it will be mad busy after and theres a drift thing on the 18th so doesn't leave many days if the track gets closed for accidents as Cully suggests.

Also been looking on airbnb for houses and there seem quite a few options. Looks like could be up to 10 people?

Could you come in May Samwise?

Im sure I could do May. I will be starting work for a new client beginning of april so I guess that gives me enough time to get settled in before taking holiday.

Thoughts people?

Don’t think they are tourist dates, just Nürburgring event dates.

Yeah I checked the tourist dates this morning and still nothing. It’s getting irritating and very un-german. They said two weeks and that’s up tomorrow. Sending another email Tuesday if still nothing

The 20th isnt ideal for me but im sure I can do it if I move things around. Are we just going to ring or are we going to try and hit a few other roads as well?

21st to 25th works well for me too. If we leave on the 21st? Do we have to rent the house for a week or can you book days?

Those dates r fine with me. Need a hotel maybe half way after Peugeot museum and then onto the ring for a few nights in a house ?

I should be still up for it. I’m up for peugeot museum and a few driver’s roads if that’s the plan. Im pretty easy on when we go but we want to check what the ring is open for public driving as in the week it looks like it’s only open in the evenings.

Yeah it’s evenings only during the week. It’s a helluva lot quieter in those evenings tho

Could you get the weekend off Sam ?

Timeanddate.com says sundown is roughly 20:53 that week

An itinerary could look like:
22nd: early start & travel to Peugeot Museum - stay in hotel
23rd later starter, drive on to accommodation near the ring. Track in evening
24th: daytime open to find some driving roads around and abouts, then track in evening
25th: same as previous
26th: either drive home, or drive down into the Alps staying somewhere in Switzerland
27th: winding roundabout drive home from Switzerland

? Just an idea ?

Ok cool, yeah sounds pretty good to me. I be keen for a drive in Switzerland, though am I right in thinking you need to get some special road tax to drive there?

As far as I can tell we just need giant GB stickers, run with our lights on at all times and buy a €40 sticker to use their motorways

Yeah triangles, hi viz, kitchen sink, etc. Rofl

For France it’s the sodding breathalysers that most folk forget. I bought a pack last year with everything in for when me and Mrs went camping in Rambouillet

You dont need breathalisers. Its a legal requirement to carry them but there is also no penalty for not carrying one!

Has anyone checked this route out on G-Maps?

Did you make or find that Hannah? Would be able to save time by going from the alps to the museum unless that road is particularly good?

Hannah just typed in the destinations that were discussed. Those are google maps quickest routes so no special roads. Could definitely make it easier if the alps and Peugeot museum were done at the same time.

Whats the next plan then? Who is definitely keen?

Im game. Can we define what we actually are going to do? Im game for the ring and for the museum. 5 days and a weekend or whatever. We need to make it the right amount of time that isnt too long or expensive for people.

I really want to go but also I already organise the other club events (or try to) so Im reluctant to organise this one. I just want someone to come up with a plan. make the booking. Send some money and then do it! Big Grin

Yeah im defo keen, happy to do 5/7 days. Im not great at organising this sort of thing especially as ive never been before. Orta probably has the best knowledge on this as he has been before hasn't he?

A list of who is definitely keen

Frosty
Sam Rowell
Sam Bates
Otra
Josh and Hannah

That seem about right?
