    I agree with most of your review Lottie but agree with the others that the Belgians were generally great hosts. First race I’ve had to pay for toilets.

    Unfortunately someone went through our campsite on Sat night and stole quite a bit of stuff from us and others, which ruined our weekend. The lack of security was disgraceful, including no one to diffuse late night trouble in the bar either. By Sunday morning having had to wait for the Police the race seemed a bit irrelevant, we couldn’t bear another night so tried to leave – to see everyone stuck & the LR Disco I hoped would pull me out also stuck with road tyres. With a bit of planning & a secret rear exit we got out & after the race we moved to Liege and toured Bruges on Monday, which was great.

    We were in Gold 2 and the view was awesome. Trackside there’is a high fence like Monaco so you don’t get decent close shots, but the cars are going so quick by then anyway. Great view of Les Combes and all the way up the hill. I did the whole 3 days in flipflops, just in case you saw me :)
