Indded, that's a concern. I could fix that though by buying KTM 690 SMC-R which will mean my top end is only 110mph :D
deal done yet !.?
LOL no.... the XSR will be going to Portimao :)

We're all gonna be needing re-patriation insurance next year so I remembered that FE covered this in one of their missives earlier this year.

Food for thought....

I'm guessing that you must have fallen asleep or something before you finished that sentence - I've added the missing words on the end....

Well i'm not sure anyway it matters as we're going with NL so what FE once said or didn't say is of little significance.

I'll ping NL a mail today to see if they have any preferences/exclusions/thoughts and we'll go from there.

Personally i've never had anything but good experiences with Kev at FE, but i'm well aware plenty who have not. I think sometimes it can come down to how you approach. Last time at Silverstone i wanted to move to Inters despite the timings putting me in the lower group. It transpired i was 0.5s off moving to Inters automatically, so he allowed me to move up, that made things a lot better for me as i then picked up a bit more time and was much more on the pace of the group. But i think the fact i didn't walk over there ranting and demanding certainly made the discussions easier than they could have been :)

So no preferences or exclusions..... looks like i'll wait to see what comes up in the next few months. Had to laugh when i looked at NL site that almost every Euro date they list for next year is sold out already :D

The track is going to absolutely blow your mind.

The elevation changes, corner speed, the drop into the last turn, scraping the knees, just epic.

Oh, yeah, there's a strip bar too

I still can't get an answer out of my pals here as to whether they're going. Penny is taking the car over and we plan 2 make a 2 week holiday out of this if the lads skip it.
But a coupe of the lads have talked about popping over on the last day, then we go off on a 2 week biking holiday, which we already had mapped out anyway. Seems a bit daft for me to make the journey back here, only to go again a few weeks later.

We'll see :mrgreen:

If they havent already booked, its fully booked from what i saw on their website.......as are pretty much all their euro dates for the entire year apart from a few at Cartagena
