As iam probably not going to get to Milan :cry: i was wondering about going to this! anyone else as it looks awesom and a great substitute for Milan ! For those you that have been to previouse years has anyone camped? or could you recomend hotels near by they do supply a list on the site but recomendations are even better i guess. Also have you been a Participant or Spectator regarding ticket prices?
One last question well 2 really - best ferry route from the south of the UK or Channel tunnel? how far once on the continent is Spa milage/hours?
Sorry its long winded but its all in the planning you know!
Thanks for any input :thumbs:

Yep Im booked to go in my beasty again, Norfolk line are the people to book with, under £40 per car return Dover to Dunkirk. Its about a 4.5 hr journey once in France at a respectable pace, if you log on to Alfa pages there is 5 of us going (mostly 33s) there may be room where we are staying but you need to contact Bobber as he booked the villa!!. Its best to get your car out on track at least once over the weekend otherwise you will regret it when you are back, last year I did 2 grand parades (1 sat , 1 sun) and believe me everyone drives like they stole it. Unless you want a full blown hour you need the Scuderia run thats out and out racing.:cool:

Evening, just go to Spa italia site and choose what you wish to do, the grand parade is good, the scuderia is a balls out blast around the track and I would recommend doing the whole weekend, Im sailing out at 10am from dover with norfolkline and returning 2pm on the wed 23rd. The weekend goes pretty quick and us lads get trollied during the evenings. I think the parade is about 70 euros for a 1hr session, you won't get any idea how good this track is until you drive around it, its steep has many tight long corners and some amazing veiws, the best bit is flooring it down to eau rouge and then thinking do i need to brake as it looks like a wall towering infront of you, to think f1 drivers hit this a 170mph is mad, i had to back of at 110mph to 85mph to make it. It also has lots of cool cars to see, and the stella is tops on tap.:thumbs::thumbs::thumbs:
