Some of us are going to Spa-Francorchamps for Friday 11th November

2015 RX-8OC Trip
Please do bare in mind this isn't a cheap trip and could be looking at something like £2,000 per person in an RX-8, although you can keep some of the costs down by sharing hotel rooms for instance and spreading the cost over the next 8 months.
The reason am suggesting taking the train is that it only takes about 35mins to go from Folkestone to Calais, where as by Ferry from Dover to Dunkirk takes about 2.5hrs to cross the English Channel.
If you go by train, then make sure you book your car on the lower deck as you may ground out on the top deck going up and then coming back down
Can go in Convoy from Le Shuttle Calais to Spa-Francorchamps Belguim on the E40 Motorway, but please also have your European Sat-Nav on in the car in case you get separated on route and can then make your own way there instead.
Circuit Days run exclusive car track days on the legendary 4.5 mile Spa-Francorchamps F1 circuit. All events are run in an open pit lane format with restricted numbers to ensure unlimited, quality track time.
Please note race teams are not permitted to participate on our events at Spa-Francorchamps.
