Vantastic and I left Newcastle at 4am on Sat. 23rd, got the 2 o'clock Doverline to Dunkerque,


Got to Hotel Zurburg just before 10pm, enough time for Bratty and chips before bed.

Up at 8am on Sunday (argh!!! :angry: ) Breakfast then off to the Ring.


Was quiet early doors, but soon picked up.


Met some German Alfa Owners




And saw a couple of Northloop cars.



Went to Motorsport for Dinner with Joel, Paul (Sweens) and Andy (Bodba).

Went sight seeing on Monday and bought a babygro (read baby goat if you are Joel, Paul or Andy) for my friends new baby girl and ate some lovely cake.

Van. went to the ring on Monday night on his own while I had a little nap :shame: :gay:


Joel and Andy


Dinner Monday night at Pistenklauce where I made friends with a German man, his son and boxer dog :unsure:

I may have been dreaming but I think I was involved in this happening at 2am with torches and a tin of BMW Alpine White. :whistle:

Started the long drive home on Tuesday, was planning to spend a night in Dunkerque but IMHO its a hole of poop so we hitched a lift on the 6pm ferry and got back to good ole Blighty.

Spent a night in Cambridge and another in Oxfordshire before they opened the M1 again and we could get home.

Had a great time, TBH better than I expected. Van. is watching his Alfa 75 Ring DVD as a type and we have been talking about our next trip with the 75 or Scoob.

Sounds like you had a great time...apart from the journey home!

I always start planning the next trip as soon as I get home - it's the only way to beat the post trip blues :) :)

Not much space on the Spider for a Northloop sticker :huh:

Just got an Alfa 145, already been around the ring without us, but has a rear window calling out for a sticker :P
