Nurburgring F1 track day

Date:      October 2012        
Track:     Nurburgring F1 circuit  
Location:  Nurburgring, Germany
Level:     20 minute session with cars and bikes!

Not the “RING” but still a demanding circuit. Adding motorbikes on the same session was interesting, seeing a biker overtake a Lotus then come off at the bend was a reality check.

Spa track day

Date:      Oct 2012        
Track:     Spa Francorchamps  
Location:  Spa, Belgium
Level:     All levels, Open pit lane

What a brilliant track for F1, but also Lotus cars! The weather was fine and sunny, quite unusual for an October day.

Eau Rouge is a lot steeper than it looks on TV and driving at 100mph plus is an experience not to be missed.

Run Out to Whitby

Mileage: 180 miles approx 
Time: 6 hours 
Route: Start off at Leeds, Sherburn-in-Element, A166 to Fridaythorpe, Over to Staxton Hill, A64 to Scarborough (see pic), along Coastal Road to Flask Cafe, back across the Moors to Pickering, Helmsley (coffee stop), A19 back home.

Some good roads and the weather was perfect for the mid-week run.
