Knockhill isn't til 22 July 2001 but, like Mondello may take some planning, even though there are no ferries involved.

A few people have shown an interest of sharing the driving up to Knockhill and camping (B&B's are reasonably priced if you do not feel like roughing it in a tent). If you are thinking about visiting this circuit, which, I have visited before and have been very impressed, then post your thoughts or proposals here and we can see if we can share the cost of petrol.

Believe me when I say that you won't be disappointed. A good photo opportunity for cars as well.

I'm definately up for it Lorny - i'm gonna try booking the time off work tomorrow. However, I cannot guarantee i'll get it as they hit the roof when I came up with the dates for Le Mans on Friday...

I will be booking the Friday and Monday off if I am permitted the time. I suggest we all meet and start driving up early Friday morning. This'll give us Saturday to do our thing, Sunday at the track and then we can drive back again early Monday morning and be back at our desks on the Tuesday. Sound OK ?

I have already booked off the Friday, Monday and Tuesday. Definitely drive up Friday morning. The people I have interested at the moment works out pretty well. Probably means that you have the longest journey, Craig! We will head up north picking up people on the way. Still need to suss out which car we are taking - the biggest for boot space, obviously. I am not fussed when we come back as I have the Tuesday off as well.

I have four people so if anyone else is interested, this will mean taking a second car.

Oh Les! I know I can take five people in my car but that means three adults in the back on a say, 7 or 8 hour journey from where I am, anyhow. And also there is the luggage problem for those that are taking tents. I am not sure about Woody's plans yet so there may still be a way. I will email her but I think it all boils down to finances with her. I shouldn't have any financial troubles by then! Woohoo!

We'll find a way, Les. There are still some people who I think may come and haven't nagged yet.

How big is your car?

Two cars would be good. It's a long journey and a backup car is always a good idea. The alternative is a minibus - which I would be happy to drive if everyone else wants to pay for it between them ?

That's a good idea. I am not bothered about driving a minibus either to share the driving. I've driven a Mercedes Sprinter before and coped pretty well. Only clipped one curb (and that was dealing with a crossroad with traffic lights in Germany!

How many seats are there on a minibus? 8? plus room to put tents and luggage. Do you know how much a minibus would cost? for the four days?

Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it this year, because on the 22nd of July I'll be down at Snetterton racing a Mini

Bloody shame though because I really want to visit Knockhill. It was on last years Mini calendar, but it's missing off this year's.

I've got a Corsa - bit of a squeeze with 4 people and no luggage.
Minibus sounds good.

I have just been having a look around at prices for people carriers/mini buses. They were 70 per day. (ouch!). Wouldn't it be cheaper to take two cars????

You think that is bad for a minibus - a return flight is 53 from Stansted and a Corsa for 2 days 56 - ouch!
