If I stay in a hotel nearby, it will be a free Holiday Inn/Express using the numerous points collected on business trips.

If anyone wants some 'family' camping somewhere, my clan (wife + 7 & 13yr old) may be interested subject to the weather on the weekend. They won't be too interested in car stuff all day. Although I would like to take my wife on track and scare her to death :twisted:

Fantastic. Count me in. Is it as fast as Karl's car though, or does that depend on whether Karl is driving?

Model: 924 turbo, CGT,
Just applied for leave, fingers crossed I'll be coming along with the CGT recreation. Happy days, last time I drove at Three Sisters I was in a single seater and wrapped up the Fardon sprint leaders championship 1997, how time flashes by. :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:
