Thinking of doing the Ring on the Sunday if it's open.

Bloody jealous lol, I just can't afford it at the moment. Just got to much on my plate for next year.,Plus got Snetterton booked in the 12th of March.

Got sacked off due to the world most annoying thing.

Re-booked for Monday Oct 4th should any one have interest - probably be cancelled again. :doubledown:

Yeah, who knows where we'll be in another 6 months with foreign travel. Rubbish times.

Germany is talking about a shut down ????

I think late summer is your best hope for trips to Europe. Germany,like France was slow to get off the blocks and covid numbers are still on the rise,but both countries are dramatically ramping up vaccinations.

Make use of UK tracks then.
Cadwell has gotta be worth a shot for all you track fanatics.
The only thing you'll catch in Lincolnshire is Cabbage Fly or Trench Foot.

AGREED BUT,

There isn't a track in the uk as good as the Ring or Spa..
As soon as Germany gets the green light happy days..

Going round and round a circuit that's only 2 miles long is hardly the same..
Caldwell does look fun though as a last resort I suppose.

Scott.T 10-04-2021 09:16 PM

But you can't get to Germany and you haven't done Spa.
I think you'll be impressed by Cadwell.
Just saying.....this country has alot to offer yet everyone is obsessed with going abroad (and I dont just mean for the Nurburgring)

Well I've just had it reaffirmed why I prefer driving abroard.

Ive just been out for a drive the first time in months.

I drove from Hastings out to Brenzett (A259) and back again,
returning via the Military Road, A259 then Winchelsea Beach and Farlight.

Those that know the road will appreciate that its a nice road (driven with in the speed limits) it is now bloody awful to drive the road surface is terrible what used to be a nice surface is now like driving over speed bumps and to be honest its dangerous.

The roads are in a disgraceful state constantly having to dodge potholes.

And to top it all I topped the tank up with VPower a snip at 1.45 per litre.


So what should have been a nice drive was very disappointing, this country is becoming a Sh*thole, its no wonder people like to go and drive in Europe.:rant::getmecoat:

Remind me.....how did you vote in Brexit.....😆

I've driven to Rye, Brenzett, Ashford, Broad Oak, Cripps Corner, Staplehurst, Tenterden etc.....several times in the last few weeks and had great fun.

Was it just the Military road that was bad, because Rye to Brenzett was fine last weekend.

The Military Road is now really bumpy, so much so the bump stops were tested..
I used to travel along there every working day for about 3 years so I know it well.

There are so many potholes around at the moment, just missed a big one on the newly surfaced part of the road between the top of Martineau Lane and Coastguard Lane.

There was a biggy on the camber road by the ranges. A slab has sunk and someone sprayed "caution' on the road.
But the warning comes a bit late when your 'enjoying yourself". I'm pretty sure my rear wheels where airborne when you kick out the other side of the subsidence.
Definitely a brown trouser moment !!!!

There are some great tracks in the uk and you can always get a car transporter if you worry about the UK roads.

The good thing about short tracks is that you get to know it faster and can start to push harder, learn how to use the car to its limits ( some times more than your talent?)

If something goes wrong you don't have to pay a mortgage rate, and not have to get the car recovered form Europe.

I love the ring but its so long it takes along time to learn. Can't wait to go again but happy to do a UK tracks instead
