Iíve never done Spa from The Hook, but mileages are virtually the same via either of the cities you mention. No idea how busy Eindhoven gets, without constant traffic flow checking on google maps or other similar app.

Was going to suggest you get a truck, then you wonít feel left out while circumnavigating Antwerp!

Agree would certainly feel at home, but maybe a tad extravagant for one race meeting!
I suppose that all of Europes sea freight moves via either Rotterdam or Antwerp so hardly surprising the volume of artics.

Will stick with trusty 4x4 & trailer, and annoy most of Belgium (oops, and Holland) by going just a little bit faster than the thousands of trucks.

As usual nobody on here mentions the Pre War Sports Car race on Friday.
Itís a decent entry although I am not in favour of the VSCC type specials being allowed to run.
Usual entry in 6 hours to see if we can get past seven o clock
Usually in the Pizza Resturant by 8.30 .At least you get a table!
Back via Brussels on Sunday and itís usually the day they close major cities to bikes and pedestrians only.
If anyone wants a passenger on Thursday I am available as am getting to old to be arsed to drive over!
Lots of old posters on the thread.Hallo Mr Hall.!

I did it once, 3 or 4 years ago (also for the 6-hours event) from Rotterdam Port via the Eindhoven and Maastricht route - very pleasant journey, no problems. In the years before and after that I'd flown into Amsterdam and again driven via Eindhoven / Maastricht - again no problems.

I think two years running there was a lot of construction work driving through the Eindhoven area but that was maybe 10-15 mins in stop / start traffic, nothing much.

We figured there were possibly 2/3 last year but a so called authority told us that was rubbish in that there was only one !

Remember the year we were asked to get involved with a German GT40 and most of papers were photocopied and pasted.

The diligent and brilliant scrut worked that out!

Got to say that now he posting again!

I know its become a GT40 race but i still think that a TVR Griffiths 400 could win. lots of power and very light, great little car, shame the prices have gone through the roof.
