Lol, t'was an overnighter.... Wouldn't have been bad if I'd have actually slept. £100 gets you 2 ferries and 1 night "accommodation" (known to L&D lines as a reclining chair, ha).

I can make it this year, combination of other events and other expenses, sorry.
2 Highland Drives, 1 Full JAE, 1 Part JAE, 1 France Trip, 1 North Wales Run, 2 Dyno days, 3 Karting Events (Current Champion), 1 Scotland Meet, countless Yorkshire Meets and even more Northwest Meets later... Im MR2-less, for now!

I agree. I have committed to several events this year. For each, my expectation, budgeting, and preparation are all known factors. Unfortunately, for me this one isn't atm.

Yes. Failing to plan is planning to fail. It's one thing if you're on your own: quite another with a whole group of people.
If you're not living life on the edge, you're taking up too much room!
