Give the cars a good shake down run. Always fancied going to Le Mans, apparently things get really interesting at 2 am when the Dutch and Germans get really hammered!! Just the sight, sounds and smells of endurance cars going full pelt for 24 hrs stirs something in my soul. Shouldn't be too expensive, cost of eurotunnel, fuel, camping and food/booze, well booze, I suppose food can be an option!! :)
Re the Ecosse Challenge, we need to try and put an hr or so aside at the CXM to plan a route that is agreeable to everyone. :)

Interested, just way too far ahead to commit to at this time. sCCCotland is a no-brainer, wouldn't miss it for the world!

Travel Destinations, an authorised ticket seller are doing packages inc camping, admission etc for £117 for four people in one car, if you book and confirm with a deposit before 28 TH September you pay at 2012 prices. Don't know how much of a deposit they would need, but I'll ring them tomorrow and make enquiries.

Oh aye, they said that about the ICCCR. The reality of that legendary Dutch largesse? 'You pleash be making zee lesh noish. Ve be having to be op for making to Shainshbrish in morgen'

Rock on fellas - crazee! 8)

So near to the Scottish adventure I might have to pass - or I'll be experiencing 'the sights sounds and smells' of bankruptcy!
