The Tornadiac Tour 2011 - Back To The Track

Who's attending where, when and with whom?
What are your plans?
Still trying to decide between Qatar with you, if that offer from the old site is still on the table, or Mugello. May also hit Indy again since it's cheap. My brother will be going with me where ever we end up choosing.

Kneel down, ye sinners,
To streetwise religion,
Greed's been crowned the new King
Hollywood dream teens, yesterdays trash queens,
save the blessing for the final ring,

I'm going to try and make Jerez. Anyone else going ?
A member of the old forum (dunno if he transfered) lives in Jerez, I'm pretty sure he's going. He came to Estoril last year. I'd love to. I miss Jerez.

I've got a hotel sorted for Jerez at the circuit, in the golf course hotel so it's a 10 minute stroll to the track. Estoril will be the same, so that looks to be the way I'll go.
Silverstone is a lock, staying in the hotel 5 mins drive from the track this year, and I haven't been to Assen for 3 years for varying reasons, so I've got a hotel sorted in Assen - Wednesday to Sunday.
I'm afraid unless the flights to Monterey come down, Laguna will be missed, again. I've got the time sorted out, but I refuse to be ripped off £800+ for that flight. I can go to Indy for £400 and Sepang for £450. I have limits in terms of getting fleeced by travel companies/airlines.
Second half of the season I haven't decided on.
I'd say it's looking likely I'll do Jerez, Estoril, Silverstone and Assen, with maybe Sachsenring if Laguna doesn't pay off. I've never been to the Sachsenring and I have a feeling a few people might decide to fly in for that round.

I suppose the timing coincides with when they run out of pot in Brazil?
Hey, there is a lot more to the Netherlands than pot and prostitutes. I love the place and am envious of Hugo, although I'm not particularly crazy about Amsterdam (or any large city for that matter). Every time I say I like it there someone assumes it is pot or hooker related. It's old world Europe, the food is great, they are friendly and they all speak English - what's not to like?

Matt, I don't particularly want to put too much personal stuff on the open internet, so I'll just say that Qatar is looking highly unlikely for me now in terms of getting medical cover and getting the flights I want in the timeframe allowed. So I'd say it's 99% certain I won't be doing the season opener. I've not been to Jerez for many years, so it makes sense to start 2011 closer to home at Round 2. It also means I can slip down to Estoril with Goncalo for Round 4.
Ahh alright man, that sorts it for me then! Makes my decision easier Although I've badmouthed Qatar before, saying there's nothing to view there (their official sight seeing travel website only has a handful of things listed for crying out loud!), it was interesting for me due to the all access passes you mentioned on the old site. And the fact that it's just different from where everyone else goes on vacation.
Mugello it is then! I better get planning.
