Looks like I'm off to the Spa 6hrs this weekend having "almost" gone the last five years. 

Any tips?

hi David,have a good weekend as the local sat/sunday weather forcast seems ok at the moment.there used to be a good veiwing spot on the exit of hairpin with a gap in the fencing.this provided the chance to get more than close enough to the action as a spectator but i doubt if it still exists if my recent visit to brands hatch is an indicator of the way safety measures are progressing[safety fencing BOTH sides of the druids hairpin approach now -what next a 'lid' over the top?there was  a small motor museum nearby but was closed last visit.time permitting a visit to the original road cicuit may be of interest and also the nurburgring is not too far away.there should be a bit of a social in the clubhouse on saturday with entertainment  etc.last visit we camped near to a local pub and had to eject an intruder who was in one of our tents[remember that P.Jennings if you are here?]lots of interesting stuff on the entry list i expect!best regards richard

Follow this link to PistonHeads and its only 15 euros...  How much is three days at Goodwood?  Much as it was a shame to miss Goodwood this year I've soooo long wanted to visit Spa.

The challange now is a balanced diet over the weekend - how many beers per bag of chips?

Take a stroll to the far side of the track, soon use up the calories!

Great weekend of racing at spa, as well as the six hour race it included a full programme with World Sports Cars and Grand Prix Cars. All for twenty five euro. The weather was also unbelievable. Finally caught up with David in the Media Centre. Retro-Speed magazine supported three cars, the first, a Mustang blew it's diff but the Shelby 350 managed a fifteenth and the lightweight E Type 24th. Sorry no Lancias.

I now have a YouTube channel.  Its just taken with an ordinary point and shoot camera but the sound is good enough to take me right back.

One camera does nice small MPG files, the other huge great AVI files... Anyone know how to compress an AVI to a sensible enough size to upload?
