Don't think I stopped laughing for whole 4 days away! What a weekend.
Thanks to everyone who helped organise this, will be there next year for sure as will my brother (Paul) who should be in a coupe by then.
The track was just stunning, I'm in love with it. Eau rouge is genius peice of tarmac, I'm happy with a 110mph entrance speed into it with my standard suspentions setup, although I did see too much of the curb at the top of the hill
It was also good mixing it up with the lambp's and ferrari's among others on the grand parade as long as you didn't get stuck behind the psyhco pace car driver in the fiat 500
Was great to meet everyone old and new and sorry if I didn't get round to everybody!
I managed to get very drunk indeed on the firday night thanks to magoo and his power wine (thanks magoo
) The worst part was blowing my ring up at 3am next to the tent of a church of england priest who was camping next to us
Got back at 4am after a massive slog trying to get back to the euro tunnel.
Some of you may of met my mate 'Nat' who was in convoy with us for the trip over (Fiat punto)
Well his car's alternator was on its way out and finally gave up on the motorway on the way back in Belgium. One of the funniest things I've ever seen is him kangerooing down the hard shoulder of the A601 at 20mph holding his hand out of the window doing a whipping action and pretending he's on a horse, I later found out he was trying to tell me to get back because he thought his car was gonna blow up
We finally came to rest on an nondescript section of motorway
where we had to wait for resue for 4 hrs after being told only one. His car was then taken to a garage
in the middle of nowhere.
The car was prenounced dead at the scene and we left it there in favor of a hire car to get back on time for the train. The only problem was the hire car was in Leige so we had to trek back there to pick it up. We packed up his car with all the stuff we didn't need like stinking sleeping bags, tents, camping stoves and off we went.
By the time we arrived in Leige though time wasn't on our side and they company was waiting for a fax to come through from the RAC so we decided in the end to all jump in the coop and made the rest of the journey in 2 hrs
We managed to book the last train back at 23.50...... I could go on
Pics and vids to come soon!
