    Default Irmscher 2008 Suggestions....

    Hellooo.... I know its a long way off, but could we have an option, next year, of extending the time we spend away. So we are not driving around like mad people without much resting time.

    What about extending it to 5 or 7 days... so that we can have a good look around Germany, Belgium, Luxumberg, France etc..etc..

    I'm sure we could turn it into a mini (or major) holiday !!

    Just a suggestion....

    I agree, as much as I loved the weekend, and this is not in any way, shape, or form meant to be seen as a criticism, because it is not meant that way at all, I would also like to see it extended.
    I came home absolutely shattered, feeling like I didn't stand still for five minutes over the weekend as time was always against us. And that was even with a relief driver which I know helped a lot.
    I'd love see next year made a longer event.
    I do think though, that the option of a shorter stay should still be available as no doubt the extra cost of a longer stay will put some people off.

    Sounds a plan.

    Shorter stay may be helpful to some like you say, Otherwise, you could even include going down to Italy, back through the Mont blanc Tunnel, past Le-mans, possibilities are endless!

    Option of a longer stay is definitely a good idea, and stick with the shorter one too as people may not be able to get all that time off, or the cost may be an issue too.

    Apart from the short bit from Brussels when I was doing the car-to-car photos, I did all the driving in my car so I know what you mean about it being very tiring - plus having to deal with other bits 'n' pieces that cropped up.

    Just imagine what it'd have been like if I hadn't persuaded Cabby to change the third night from Germany to Belgium!!

    I think the dates are already set for next year, don't think they fall under school holidays though. Would be handy for us too as Jane is a teacher. She was due back on Monday after being off for Easter, but managed to take it off.

    hey GG.....you were "shattered" wimp

    The possibilty of a 2 stage event looks like it would be attractive to most i.e. upto & including Irmscher for all then those who have to can return home then stage 2 for those who have got more time can carry on touring Europe........just a thought though...........either way if it's half as good as this year it'll be fantastic

    After looking at the fun you guys had, me and the Zaf VXR (oh and wife) will defo be coming on this one. Bring on Irmscher 2008.

    It would be great if it was during the holidays as being a teacher I have no chance to get time off.
