I didn't go, obviously, but this is what I planned for.

Travel Insurance £7
Breakdown Cover £30 ish (added onto existing cover)
Hotel £20 (per night)
Ferry £54 (return)
Car insurance £25 (per yr added onto existing insurance)
Lap on the ring €16 (£10.91)

travel insurance - covered under EU /NHS card thing
hotel - ours was very cheap at 35 euros - about £25 a night
Ferry - ours was one of the cheapest at about £80.
car insurance - mine was covered
lap on the ring - 16 euros individually, or slight savings if you buy bulk tickets.

Second question.

Would you pay £199 for a 'ring holiday?

So all you have to pay for other than the £199 would be Laps, food and fuel.

Do you think many people would?

I know I wouldn't. I think (going off what I would have been paying had I actually been able to go) it easily worked out cheaper than that anyway.

Nope it different for each person? Breakdown cover for example some people can add it to their policy where others would buy a one off period.

Yep, 6 in total! :D Could happily eat those every day for the rest of my life tbh.

It was indeed a fabulous trip, despite the weather on the first couple of days.

Oi Tom & Mark you EOS wielding people, get some pics up pronto! :)

So the £199 includes accomodation and ferry/tunnel you mean? How many days is that for?

Sounds a tad steep tbh. We paid £25 per night for accomodation (including brekky) and £80 for the ferry so that'd be £130. Better value if it's the tunnel I spose.

I was just trying to think of some of the machinery we spotted whilst out there, anyone want to plug the gaps in my memory?

Porsche Carrera GT x 2
Ferrari F40
Aston Vantage x 3
E90 M5 x 3 (not including the taxis)
M6
Lamborghini Diablo
Lamborghini Gallardo
Audi RS4 x 3
Audi RS6 x 2
Lotus 340R x 2 plus loads of Elises and Exiges
Umpteen Porsche 911s, GT3s, GT3RSs etc.

some GT2's

i think there was at least 3 RS6's

E60 M5's not E90 ;)

a couple of E39's too ;)

More M3s and M3 CSL's than thought possible.
as well as plenty of stripped out E30's & E36's
