Hi Jeroen,

Myself, Simon and Prakash are staying in a static caravan in Arnheim Friday and Saturday night here:

And we are heading to the Nurburgring Sunday morning to have a watch and drive some laps on the Touristenfahrten day.

Regards

Ben

Ben,

Sounds good and perhaps a few more will join you on that camping.
If you guys have never been there and do have some spare time, on Monday for example, drive over to Spa as well.
Only a 90 mins drive from the Ring, from Spa to the Eurotunnel is 3 hours.

ok so yesterday I booked everything.

Decided on the euro star as im not that good on boats, and im also worried I might ground out and cause a problem.

for the train is £158 return but I paid extra so that I can still travel on the next train if for some reason I am late

This is our chosen accomodation its 20 mins drive to the show. http://vakantieparkarnhem.nl/

They do have a bar, restaurants and (god forbid) LIVE entertainment and something called a "sub tropical swimming paradise". It was dirt cheap only £58.

Good luck haha, but hey as long as you have a place to sleep...

We need to do something like this perhaps, as there are enough faces that are unknown I guess:
Meet other bmwe21.net members in the flesh on the Sharknose Meeting!

Minimum!!!!
Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.
