Actually, I think the €30 is paddock entrance for the entire weekend. This may also include the actual track experience. The way I read it is that there will be 1 hour in total for everybody to drive on the track, seeing that it'll also be used for other things on the program.

Um, John I actually live about an hours drive from the circuit, so no hotel required on my half! I also think most action is going to be on the Sunday. There are plenty of places to stay - with all kinds of budget, so no worries Wink

I'm going down on the 27th. I'm taking the car round the track from 10.00-11.00 CET, so it's going to be an early morning start for me! I'll be fitting the car with a camcorder!

A mic under the bonnet (alongside the airbox) and another one above the rear 'silencer' could make an exciting soundtrack. Cool Only kidding! Laughing
