Hi
Today I have booked circuit Val de vienne for the 1st March and the Le man circuit Bugatti for August. I was going to do spa but decided to do Le man instead as it is only 2 hours north from home so a lot cheaper and looks like a good circuit.
Roll on March.

Mark,

I have never raced there before but I have tested Formula 3000, GT3, and LMP 2 cars there before so know the track well.
No Williams I am afraid :lol:
Are you definitely booked?

Guys,

Mark has recommended using Speed Monster Club to book this track day, they have a facebook page:



one has to fill in a form and send off a cheque in Euros, or travellers cheques will do. I think you can pay by credit card if you ring them up.

The link to the form you need to fill in is below:

https://21966637-8b19-4f30-b271-9bf2efd ... 1af11c.pdf

It is in French but just use Google translate to change it to English.

I have sent off my cheque and completed form.

Come on people it is a blooming lovely track to drive.

Ranjan.
:bump: :bump:

Anyone else considering this?

Considered? Yes. But I've decided to spend the money on a ski trip instead. It was a tough decision. But a week alone in the chalet with just my RX8 and a shovel for company... couldn't turn that down.

I had the best nights sleep next to Nigel after he prepared me his special cup of cocoa. Tasted a bit metallic but I was out until 11am.
