All a bit puzzling, as they can’t expect freight to not travel just because it’s winter.... I’ll ask when I next chase them about first trip availability.... I’m wondering if they simply haven’t worked out the timetable that far ahead, as the freight site still shows nothing on any crossing after 3rd Nov!

Just checked again now Iím home and have a bigger screen to look at, and Britney freight website timetables all stop on November 3rd, regardless of route! So on that basis Caen isnít an option either, BUT it must be a timetable update thing as the boats operate all year round.....

On that basis, Yes!

Itís always frustrating when booking as freight with them. I know competitors going to Barca in two months with private car and trailer that have confirmed bookings made before Xmas, but up to this morning no freight space has been allocated on the same boat! Obviously hoping they can get as many tourists on as possible......

They'll always hold space for their major freight customers - if you buy through one of the agencies I'm afraid you'll always get the leftovers, if there are any. We befriended a biggish French outfit by giving them lots of backloads, they gave us crossings in return. Worked for tyre repairs as well, after one of ours sat for a whole day waiting for a replacement tyre on the way to Magny Cours (with a pile of tyres for testing). The Robin B'stards tried to charge us the best part of a grand for the privilege, our French friends put it on their account and it magically reduced to £300. That job was for Arrows, blimey that was a long time ago!

Good story!
I stopped going through an agency after delta got a space by booking direct and I didn't! Since opening an account it's been no problem getting a space, and even choosing where I want a cabin. Only frustration is that they don't seem to release any space until a certain level of tourist bookings have been made. Yes, obviously the regular bulk customers will automatically have space reserved, which is then released near the time when actual requirements are known. That's fair enough!

Just come off the phone to Britney. Their booking system shows ferry crossings for November and onwards, so sounds like the website and itís timetables are the issue. Out of curiosity I tried a tourist booking on line and no ferries for November that way either.... Guess using the same timetable / calendar!

Looking at travelling straight to the Portimao environs from Paul Ricard, after the PA meeting there this autumn. Quite a few did same in 2017, but the Algarve event was the following weekend, so it meant no down time between. This year there is a two week gap, meaning time for a few days R&R.

The only issue will be finding somewhere to park the truck during the gap. Needs to be reasonably safe, and with electricity to keep the services running, as Iíll be living in it! And before delta suggests the caravan / camp site used before, there is no way Iím going to attempt that again.....

Parking at the circuit is not really an option either, as the outer parking has zero facilities, and the European Le Mans series is racing there on the weekend between anyway.

Any (sensible) suggestions?

Is it possible that the organiser of one of the Portuguese events that posted on here a couple of years ago may be able to point you in the right direction. Afraid I cannot remember his name at the moment, but he did seem to be ever so helpful at the time.
