Ok so there are a few questions I’ve got about the dates of events.
Le Mans, British GP, Isle of Man TT, and Goodwood FOS, are any of these traditionally held on a particular weekend? (Like Monaco is with the Ascension Holiday)
How many days does The TT go for? I know there are several days of practice and the like, but how many days of actual racing?
@BeneBoy, do you need previous experience to become a marshal or do you need to attend training days prior to the event? I’ve looked into and am considering becoming a marshal here in Australia so do you know if once trained here I would be eligible for the TT?
@ S.J.M I know from my limited History at school (I had a rather dodgy History teacher) that the Western Front is massive. I would love to attend an ANZAC Day dawn service at a battlefront where Australians fought. ANZAC Day is April 25th so it would certainly fit in with the timeline of this trip. And the Ashes are due to be in England in Summer 2013… ;) Prepare to get beaten…
@TrueF1Grit I would rather not think about the cost just yet :. I work part time after school and am trying to save as much as I can but I realise it’s going to be VERY expensive but very much worth it.. And as much as I would love to see an F1 race in Spa, it would likely add an extra month of 2 to the trip and which would increase the cost. Are there any other major races held there between May and July? Le Mans Series maybe? Spa 24 Hour?
Here in Australia, there is a company ( http://www.wickedcampers.com.au/ ) that hires out camper vans, specially designed for tourists back packing. Are there any companies similar to this somewhere in Europe? Hiring a van like this would help to majorly cut down on accommodation and travel expenses
Keep on coming with the suggestions… :)
