    Who'd be up for this?

    I'll sort it if we get enough interest.....

    Ferry from Dover to Dunkirk - £60
    Few tanks of petrol each way -£150 (ish)
    Camping for 3/4 days - €20 ish each.
    Ring laps - €24 each.

    This is all just an estimate but of we get in interest, I'll sort all the proper details.

    It's slightly more expensive per car but as you say, it's less driving! £450 return or something it was last time i priced it.

    Yeah? That's pretty decent. Every time ive looked it's been £400+. Always just go from Dover normally! The extra driving doesn't really bother me.

    Hotels are normally cheap enough?
    North Shields would be ideal if we can get it as cheap as Geordie says

    Just had a look on DFDS, It's about £180 per person (based on 2 people & 1 car)

    I'll ring them up tomorrow if i get a chance. I'm up for it though, Mrs said i could go. Haha!

    Also, the Hotel an der Nordschleife has a appartment available for upto 5 people.
    That's £325 for 2 nights (between 5 people that's £65 each).

    Have you thought about getting the Eurotunnel and a hotel the night before as it would work out a lot cheaper.

    I'd recommend staying at Linder Ferienpark it's cheaper to book direct, a three bed house that sleeps five costs €380 for three nights in September.

    I stayed there last April and it's where I'm staying again this weekend.

    Plus £100 extra in fuel. So it works out around the same. Thanks for the link, I'll check it out.

    I'm still tempted in this you lot. But i don't think i'll be taking my car if i go i'd be more than happy being a passenger in one of your cars and be taking plenty of pictures. As i say September would be good. Right now be up for it but could change down the line. Need a place of my own right now but could scrape a holiday this year :smile:

    So is this just a drive to the ring and hang around there through out the trip? I remember that museum that we didn't get too in Germany

    There might be a change of plan!

    I worked out some costs for going from Dover and North Shields lol!

    Going from Dover (including petrol) roughly about £185 per car + or - a few quid either way!

    Going from North Shields - about £450 per car, but there's about 6/7 hours less driving.


    So even tho it's closer from North Sheilds, I think it's still definitely worth driving to Dover and through France!! Opinions?
