My events for 2021 at the moment.
28 March,track day,circuit de haute saintonge.this is becoming my favorite track,the car always goes well there and only usually 40 cars so relaxed day and no traffic issues.
22/23/24 may Pau Grand Prix ,spectating,weekend away with the boys normally 6 of us.Pau is a great town and the street circuit goes around the old town it also a university town so the night life is good ( usually need Monday off to recover) .
1/2/3/4 July,Le Mans classic,spectating,this is a family event for me we will be camping and a friend of mine is taking his caravan.really looking forward to this as it was cancelled this year.
7 August track day,Le man, I really enjoyed this,this year so looking forward to this as well,hopefully a little cooler would be nice.
I will add to this as things come along,
Mark

Thanks for the offer Nigel,I think the cost and time away from work will rule this out for me,which makes me sad and a bit envious of you all.

I agree with Nigel agreeing with Wayne :lol: :P

Wayne is very right to quote Paul Arden when he says, “regret what you have done and not what you have not done”.
Come on Chris and Mark; be lovely to meet up again.

Ranjan.

On the other hand mrs Holmes would like to have a long earned holiday together no doubt.
Just like my better half. Don’t begrudge me doing my car thing but the best times are spent with the one you love. Not the ones who make you spend your money
