    Right I am going to gauge interest in how many people would seriously like to attend this trip. This is our 3rd time back to the trip so we have a good idea what goes on as well as the setup.

    Yes ideally you do have to be 18 ;)

    Any questions please ask. Will be for another week 5 to 7 days.

    About 10 OcUK Maybers ;) that will say they will come and won't!!!!1 :p

    Would be up for it, but don't have any car at the moment so unless I could get a lift of anyone?

    Obviously i'd be willing to pay for petrol etc for getting the lift!

    I'd love to come but couldn't possibly say at this time whether I'll be in a position to leave the country for a few days, or what I'll be driving at the time.

    Put me down as a maybe, by your definition ;)

    Count me in, provisionally.

    I'm almost certain I'll go, I just won't commit 100% until I know for sure I'll be going, which obviously depends on dates and whether the other half lets me :)

    Tank of fuel to get to the tunnel
    Tunnel fee (£100) (1st weekend in May is this cost)
    Another tank to make it to the ring/maybe 2
    Hotel is about £30 per night
    Ring tickets 8 laps about £30
    Food/beer (we spent alot here)
    another 2-3 tanks of fuel home.

    These are all estimates

    with this much time in advance would it not be better to look at ferry? it was far cheaper was it not?

    You can go by ferry but it sucks with times/delays etc Tunnel just turn up and jump on.

    Lol! Sounds like it should be a fun trip though, it's some where i've always fancied going to, just not going to have a car that can go round it for the next couple of years.

    I've been looking at a trip to the 'ring in the VX220 and would prefer to go as part of a group :)

    Sounds like a plan :)

    If we're away for a week I don't care about losing an hour or two at the ferry terminal.
