  1. @PaulCP Thx, good hint! Will definitely do next time! Ferry companies have a „lowered car“ category and I was surprised that the tunnel operates don‘t have that.
  2. We‘ve just arrived in Maidstone for the night break before we head super early tomorrow morning towards Hethel. 1,5hrs traffic jam in Belgium... Friday afternoon driving fun! Any meet ups or convoys towards the festival site that we can join? We plan to arrive at around 8am in Hethel (so we can get to the club stand before the festival opens) which means we will leave Maidstone at around 6am 😵 Looking forward to finally meet you guys in person! (Photo attached - GT430 Sport on the tunnel. I was slightly worried about getting my first scratch in the rims!)

    EVO GT430 vs 911 GT3

    What, does actually no one else around have a _Sport_?
  4. Okay, I‘ve checked the calendar and more than happy to attend with the GT430 Sport. i would need two tickets, happy to pay for them as well. Will also appreciate recommendations for hotels / appartments nearby for Fri - Sun. Thanks!!
  5. Does anyone from Germany plan to go? I‘m thinking of leaving on the 28th and am happy to join a group of people towards the ferries / the tunnel.
  6. I absolutely love the idea and was considering attending, have to check my calendar! Thanks a lot for organising it, @Bibs

    Thanks Scotty! Say hi if you‘re around as well Yes, it was quite a trip and only the second time a looong drive for the car. I‘ve spend most miles on the way to the Eifel area and around the Ring (only a few miles actually on the Ring...) on weekends so far. Getting some coffee and then queuing up for the gates to open soon.

    We successfully made it to Campsite H after leaving this morning at 6:30am from Germany. Nice drive in beautiful weather, looking forward to the festival opening tomorrow!

    Thanks @BibsWill definitely show up and say hello! Can you bring some TLF stickers to proudly decorate my car? Obviously paying for them. Question to those that have been there before and did the camping: Are you able to leave the campsite with your car during the weekend or is this forbidden once you‘re on there?

    Hi everyone, I hope that I haven´t missed a topic (or even a whole subforum?) anywhere else, I searched a lot and only found a topic for 2017. It will be my first FOS and I am taking the Lotus all the way over the canal. I assume a couple of TLF guys are going as well? Lotus seem to have a tent in the manufacturer paddock this year, do they offer some goodies for their customers usually? Maybe there is even an (un)official TLF meet somewhere?

    Yes, both in the same colour... Battleship Grey. Absolute crazy. Also saw a couple of Exiges, we were really lucky with the weather today as well. Forecast said rain, but it didn‘t start raining until the track closed down and everyone left for dinner and drinks

    I had a very strange moment today, leaving the Ring entrance parking lot at Devils Diner, waiting at the roundabout. Couldn‘t believe my eyes when i saw „my cars sister“ 😂 What a coincidence! Same spec besides GT430 instead of Sport and the black brakes. We stopped at the car park and had a nice chat, the owner is a real car enthusiast and also has a Lancia Stratos 😮
