This evening, thinking about going back for Pau 1 week later, it would cost £300 with a trailer. Quite a hike, so I looked again at the same boats I got the 90 quid crossing on. Price has doubled in 8 hours. How do they justify that??? Yeah, yeah, I know - supply & demand. Nevertheless, when we were running trucks the price never varied from one month to the next so the deal for Joe Public smacks of exploitation.
I read somewhere about clearing browser history after being on some websites, because if it recognised you when returning, the price would be higher.....

But you’re right, freight prices seem to be fixed for the season, except for the emissions / fuel ‘surcharge’ that can vary a small percentage.

Grant to go with you and this excellent training video for nurses and flying bimbos, please accept a french lesson. I dont say accept a french letter. Learn more about coucougnettes: take two stars from the forum, Delta and Colin my hero, take a fookin electric trouble affecting your car after a 20 thousands miles travel. Find the said gremlin when the races are over…*And you obtain a very well known french sentence which could be said with Iain's accent: "C'est un truc à se bouffer les couilles!"
See what I mean?

Mike they do what is supposed to be illegal, known as IP tracking. In fact, once you're connected every single information is recorded. Dont forget the first thing you do after purchasing a computer is to enter your personal data… Even a change of the HD won't cure that.
Surprisingly My Lady is back from London I'll ask her how to avoid at least IP tracking… You will be suggested to use Tor or to start your purchase at home and finish it at your office. Not very much helpful in your case!

So, back to my question. Still looking for transport for one FF. Nothing to do with me personally, just trying to help a racer friend of a friend......

If Iain or anyone can give me Tom Smith’s contact details, I’ll ask him.

Iain, this kind of announcement has been done several times about Pau circuit en ville. Often its about politics, environment, greens, and stuff. Matter of fact, it brings a lot of money to this area. By experience I can tell you how much complicated it is to hold a meeting there. You need to rent a lot of people to check spectators, several entries, several competitors areas…
There seem to be a more serious threaten on another french track, the nice Ledenon located near Nîmes. The once to be used anti clockwise in France. Really a nice place to have fun.
PS I say Pau circuit en ville because there's another track named Pau-Arnos located few miles away from Pau town.

I can see how that having both events on the same weekend would cut costs considerably, and ease local disruption, but I also think that it would reduce income for the locals that make money from the racing?

It would also reduce the amount of races that could be held for historic cars over the weekend, I would have thought.

Heaven forbid.... logic in a motorsports forum.
(I agree wholeheartedly)

Mike, agreed, again. There's enough history, experience, knowledge and will to have a little Monaco there. As you say two weekends will bring more spectators, even if different ones, more paying competitors meaning more money for hotels, restaurants, gaz stations, bakeries and croissanteries and even more money for the highway tolls.
I already said it, as an organiser the question was not how much money we could make but how to manage not to lose money! We had to deal with numbered seats in the grandstands which didn't help to satisfy the spectators tho…

Delta, dont mention it, my pleasure
