Received info from Masters, we will be in the Red Paddock. I can't remember if there is power hook up there. I'll also need a hand with my "pop up" awning so if anyone is arriving on Wednesday, I may seek assistance.

All the paddocks have hook up round the perimeters, Peter. Usually a big red 32a socket and 16a ‘commando’. I will be arriving sometime Wednesday, but not sure on timing as will be travelling up from Monza. If I can help I will. Truck will not be in Rouge as need to escape Sunday ASAP. More likely near fuel station or even before the entrance- the tarmac area on the right is now an extra paddock.....

Are they definitely letting us in on arrival? All I’ve had from Masters is about booking F1 garage or motorhomes space..... Edit- It’s on the Roadbook website- access all day Wednesday.....

Yup. If you are missing anything, or need a different / longer lead, along with most other truckers I keep a box of different plugs and adaptors.....

Thanks, as you can see I'm trying to wean myself off Ken Clarke's raceday services since he'll be concentrating on his Rovers in the MRL races. He'll be my co driver.

Isnt it about time to have the annual debate about which route to take?!?!?

Last couple of years I have gone via Lille, but google says it is now full of roadworks and suggests going north on the E313 route. My motorhome is somewhat under powered, so flat dual carriageways are good! The last bit from Liege is a killer

On a different note, I am giving a lift out to Spa to a young chap over from NZ. He is heading to Munich to drink beer on the sunday. Anyone heading that way, or heading near a railway station in broadly the right direction at some point on sunday?

thanks

Geraint

Canít help you on the lift, Geraint, Iím afraid.

The bottleneck travelling in May was where the E40 and E42 join at Liege, so whichever route was chosen resulted in the same slow section. Looks like itís eased now, but I didnít do the Summer Classic, so not up to date! Even with Brussels traffic, the E40 route shows as quicker, but both require negotiating the steep hills between Liege and circuit. Even if you go North via Antwerp on the A313 you still have the hills! I should be arriving from the south and west via E25 from Luxembourg, which will be interesting, as last section on the N66 to Stavelot will be unfamiliar......

I've always found the Lille route to be more convenient and only once gone "out" via Brussels. But coming back on a Sunday I've come via Brussels. Not sure about a Monday morning run though.

The worst jams I've suffered going out were just after the border when there were road works and an accident. Added about an hour to the journey. Other than that I haven't had many issues.

Back in the day, when we went Dover-Ostend the journey was much easier.

Has anyone got a good route from Hoek of Holland (Rotterdam) to Spa?

I did it in the summer and made the mistake of going south via Antwerp etc and have never seen so many lorries on the road at one time. Maybe going via Eindhoven will steer me away from truck city?
