I've heard it a lousy circuit, with sh*tty corners and the facilities are crap, not that I am jealous or so :whistle:

pleeeeeeaaaaaase take me with you to that Spanish motorsport heaven ;):D

Should you be able to hear the Ferrari V12 running, in which Klaas Zwart's son Erik, used to drive in Euroboss, pay attention. A Ferrari V10 sounds like a bunch of (loud) violins. That V12 sounds like those violins playing with a whole philharmonic orchestra in he background. I'm not a big Fezza fan, but last year F1 Clienti drove at Spa. There were a lot of V10 high nose F1's, but only one V12... I especially went to Spa to hear that car... such a treat. I'm told the only better sounding F1 engine is a Matra V12, but I never heard one myself.

I did ask of they'd do a cheeky barrell roll for us! Unfortunately that's just an upside down iPhone pic!

We flew over at 38,000 feet which just seemed to be a route small jets take, some of the others flew quiet close. Rather than go home the plane is staying here to take us back on Monday :)

Until recently the co-pilot owned an 88 carb turbo Esprit, too cool :D

Amazing day today. Got a few laps in a Radical SR3 and the hardware that's here is top drawer!!

For course cars they have Elise S2's and the track manager drives an Exige here most days!

Brilliant experience, Ascari is such a great place in all respects and Ronda is a great place to stay, fantastic food :)

I've got pics & videos to come Simon. It was a great trip, topped off with landing yesterday and the Evora being sat on the pan with the engine running, door open and heated seat on at the foot of the aircraft's stairs! Amazing!

I'm going to justify the place's awesomeness with a full report, watch this space :)

In the meantime, scroll up as I've updated the pics in this thread with decent sized ones!
