Had a great fun weekend. Did a lap each in Gavins van Sat morning to see where the damp patches were and a biker was down and motionless so the track got shut for an hour, hope he was ok. Track finally opened again for bikes mid afternoon and we got out in the dry and with some sun. The track got shut another couple of times during the day for accidents, one was a new Civic type R 'totalled' big style, ouch. It was busy and brilliant as usual. We got three more laps in before calling it a day. Happy days

30 euros? The issue is not the ticket but the cost if you bin your bike!

Laps are 25 euros Mon - Fri and 30 euros Sat and Sun. The more laps you buy at once the cheaper it works out and they don't run out now, you used to have to use them by Dec 31st of that calendar year but now they are everlasting.
