I'd be up for it - as long as it's not too soon, I need time to arrange myself. :hihi

The main thing I'd want sorted before going is insurance. If I stacked my car, I'm not too fussed - I'd cry but then buy another one. But I've heard a lot of stories of people getting billed for armco barriers, track closure fines, damage to other vehicles (even if there's no collision - ie oil left on track) etc etc.

If plans are made for sometime in summer next year, then yes, I may even buy a car just for that or take the motorbike (if the g/f has a change of heart which I doubt) if someone lets me bung the pieces in their car if I crash :D

I've done the ring on the bike before, bloody tiring and very hard work, but rewarding when you get things right. Also its a hard track to learn and too many people get cocky easily and crash!
