"Another International! Racing/The Ring/Spa!
Like most of our best Internationals, this one surfaced in the Pistenclaus bar at the Nurburgring. Whilst on the recent Cerburgring Tour, many expressed an interest to get back there as soon as possible, and with Phil (BossCerbera) James racing at Spa in October it seemed a good time to make some phone calls.

So basically it’s this:

Sat 6th Travel to Spa – watch historics races.

Sun 7th Watch some more racing – Phil racing in his 700bhp Cobra

Monday 8th – Over to Ring for Public Trackday.

Tues 9th – Back to Spa for Trackday. LIMITED SLOTS!!!"

That's the TVRMonster-offer . . .

As whispered a few months back some liked the idea to check out the next Spa 6Hrs. Not only did my Spablog tick boxes also a handfull of crazy Spa-racing Dutchies liked the idea as well.

We'll start with a list and get things sorted in the forthcoming months. Let's make this a good one!

Coming from The Netherlands, saturday early morning, meetingpoint x, xx:xx hrs

Coming from The UK, saturday early morning, meetingpoint Calais, xx:xx hrs

I've spoken to Andy at TVRMonster this morning and reserved myself a place on the Spa/Ring/Spa sortie - not sure if I should post here or not but I'll be there in any event

Keithyboy if you want to join the UK-convoy and organise things with 'em I'm not stopping you to join the gang and sign up here

Pretty full mailbox with splendid response BTW.

One for the good spirit:



Fact 1: La Source will look slightly different in October.

Phil: can you put down the name of the hotels / guesthouses you used last time? I can make an arrangement for a group and save some cash better spend on beers and stuff.

Fact 2: We need a restaurant that serves food quickish! Damn did we almost miss the 6 Hrs finale . . .

You lucky, lucky, lucky people

Despite it being the weekend before my 40th party (and more importantly 2 days AFTER Mrs Fubes's birthday), I now have a full green card for this trip bounce

I'll give Andy a phone later and get on the Spa Trackday driving

Last one there's a girl! (Nicky & Tracey excluded, coz they already are )
