Scottish Ring Trip 2010



Right, thought I'd start a thread to kick start it.

We've already got 3 or 4 interested people date dependent but more the merrier. I'll be taking a quieter car this year after last years noise test ;)

Last years blog here... (Almost a year ago exactly!)

Rough costs from last year -

Ferry - £250 per person sharing a twin, both with a car.
Petrol - £250
Food/Lap/Hotel/Beer - £250

All in all a relatively expensive weekend but probably the best weekend I've had in a LONG time.

Thinking maybe April/May/June time?

Plan would be to get the ferry from Newcastle again as Rosyth is very expensive, or at least it was..

This is probably where we'll stay, seemed to be a good location last time.
The room was 75Euros per night for a twin room.

Worth it for the view from the room alone!

I gotta do it sometime, might as well be next year! Maybe I'll hold onto the Clio for a few more months before getting something boring. How many nights stay etc. are you planning? I'll get my student brain in gear as I'm pretty sure I could do it for less than £750...mind you I'll prob. use half as much fuel as you :p
 
Nice one Paul. Obviously we'll need to wait until the dates are posted up, but any dates or months that suit/dont suit, post them up

Yeah the 182 would use maybe £150-200 I'd reckon. We had the TVR and V6 and don't think we were under 100 the whole way ;)

I'm up for any number of nights, weekdays or weekends..
 
Obviously car sharing would reduce costs further Tav.. Think its £375 for a room and one car, or £500 for a room and 2 cars.

Same for you Paul, not sure if you need a passenger etc.

Thought he had an R8 now?

I'm game for this, although I'm a little confused on the pricing. £375 for a room and a car? Is that just for the ferry?

Rightho.
Ferry is over night, so i believe its including the bed.


Im up for this, clio needs finished first.

So for track novices as ive never done a track day, is it worth going to KH to practice some before hand?

I haven't either, but after a practice lap or two we'll probably be ok.

Hmm not sure...

Depends if i'm still in the UK or not.


wanna run away the gether?

tempted for a ring trip, costs seem fairly good.
Will watch with interest as end date may be the issue as id like to go to vegas next year, but we will see

:eek:

If I've still got it! Probably crawl

Yeah, return ferry including a bunk bed. Food is quite pricey on board.. £30 for a tiny steak

lol. You don't need any preparation prior for going to the ring...Don't drive it like a hero...We're all there for the experience not to set lap times...Sure give it the beans but as per usual...Within your own limits.

I reckon my mate Stuart would be game, ok to ask him a long? Integra Type R on R888's would give me someone to keep up with lol

To be fair and not to put a negative tone to this trip already. We're never going to agree a date that will suit all... Look at this yr for example, never happened because there was dicking around. When we went, we did it properly. Looked when the track was opened. Found a date and booked there and then.

No pissing about with dates, hotels, money, travel. This will be a nightmare i can guarentee it!!

i'm in! ;)

well im saying book for a date in on of the suggested months asap so theres no fuckin about with the whole ''i cant make it then'' pish. Book it asap and i can then take the time off work for that week so im guaranteed to be off.


I want to go. Ive been saying it since i joined here. Just dont know how to go about organising it all:eek:
 
What we'll do is, once the dates are online, I'll check my rota and pick 3 or 4 possible trips and take it from there.. The date won't suit everyone but unlike most, I can't take time off work..

Most folk seem to be quite flexible with holiday dates

No point booking until we know when the track is open.

Also echo was Ali says, it's all about the experience.. We all want to go home in one piece..

I'll think about it, a lot of money for a weekend (1.5 mortgage payments! lol). I'd probably want to go as a passenger if I do though.

3 people could hire a 197 for 3 laps each for €160 each from that link Justin posted.
