you must Mark.  Didn’t Les put a final date on the rooms being reserved?

The lovely Eleonora at the Belvedere has pencilled in the rooms until Christmas, but the others are first-come-first-served bases. 

I don't think any of them required a deposit, so it's worth sending them an email and getting your rooms booked soon. 
I also suggest contacting the Henry II via Email, as they seem to be difficult to get hold of on the phone.

Is there any space still on this trip? I’d love to come along.

Hi Ben,
We are currently at capacity with the hotels and Redbull, but as it’s over a year away I’m sure there will be some who dropout.

If you PM me your mobile number, I’ll add you to the list, and as soon as someone drops out I’ll call you.

Well, that's emails away to the three hotels.  Not sure what I'm doing on the way back.  If Steve's off to the Eagles Nest and Belsen, I wouldn't mind tagging along on the way back.

Glad you're all booked.
If you travelled to Zeebrugge the night before, you could head into France and meet up with the 20 other cars as we come over in the morning.  Alternatively, we could find a place on the way south to rendezvous. 

53 weeks to go.....
 


Neil, that sounds logical to me also. I think the best meeting place would be the Reims GP track.  Cuts out a days driving and a hotel.

Mark,  Dachau is my plan, promised the wife to take her a long time ago, Belsen us on the far north.  Dachau is just outside Munich which is only an hour from the Eagles Nest. Dachau is a much more evil place.  Not been for 30 years though. But it left a big impression on me. So did Belsen,  but for different reasons.

Evening all,

Just trying to double check everybody is still attending and have started to look at booking your channel crossings etc. Lots of you all have been in touch on the group chat. But I know you all don't use it. 

Les is looking at sorting a group discount for the tunnel. Some of us are making our own way to Reims GP track for the first Rendezvous point either by ferry or as having crossed the channel earlier in the week etc. 

Can everyone please confirm their attendance. 

If anyone wishes to be added to the reserve list please get in touch.

If anyone on the attendance list already, wishes for an electronic copy of the roadbook just PM me and I will send it to you.

Regards

Steve.

Will be meeting you all in Reims as the other half won't go in the tunnel.

Ladies and Gentleman, It is apparent that we need to make it clear this trip is fully subscribed. If you wish to join us we can put you on the waiting list. Please do not just book everything and assume that means you are included in this trip. 

Regards

Steve

Sorry guys, due to circumstances, I have decided to cancel. I have cancelled the hotels, so there is a spare place. I hope that the trip goes well for those that decide to go ahead.

OK everyone. This is looking better as each week passes. France has now announced all hotels, restaurants and cafes can re-open so we are pretty much good to go. They have quarantine in place still for UK arrivals. But unless we have a second wave I'm sure that will be lifted before the end of July.

Dinner with Christian Horner and our pit lane access is probably not going to happen now, but everything else looks like it will be on the cards.

Although I doubt Monza will be admitting fans by September. I still think they might. As I cannot imagine football can survive without fans for all of next season. So there will be some considerable commercial pressure for fans at events in the near future.

F1 have already stated that they're looking to open races to fans towards the latter part of the season as long as they can do so safely, so there's some hope yet.
