Can we discuss UK drivers stop overs etc? From London to ....
Which transport and times you are taking!
A possible on route meet might be good  ;)

Thanks,

I would echo Kemal's point regarding a meet up somewhere en route may be good but is anyone from the north of the UK travelling via North Sea Ferries Hull to Rottedam?

I haven't finalised my planning yet but I'm currently thinking of driving from the middle of the Netherlands to Merano in a leisurely way. We'd probably leave on the 20th, in the morning, from the Middle of the Netherlands. Getting to Meran is a 1050 km drive (via motorways). I typically use the book "Links und Rechts der Autobahn" to find charming hotels on the way, depending on how far I get. So I do not pre-book.

First night about halfway, around the Karlsruhe-Stuttgart area (I've been to the Mercedes Museum a number of times, but I might visit it briefly depending on time).

And then, rather than taking the road via Innsbruck over the Brenner pass, I might take the road through the Oetztal (which is a lovely sightseeing road), overnighting in Hochgurgl, where we have gone skiing many times. At the Timmelsjoch Hochalpen strasse there is a new motorcycle museum that might be fun for an hour or so. The road down from the mountain is pretty spectacular, with so many hairpins that you'll be tired of it by the end. The last time I drove it is was pretty hairy...

I'm not fixing anything, or booking hotels, as progress depends on traffic and so on, but if Pagoda's want to tag along... you're welcome!

Peter, I have tried to follow you on previous outings in our SLs. "Leisurely" is not how I would describe your driving style!  ;)

That said, and being that I'm not too far from you here in the lowlands, I'd be happy to tag along for a "leisurely" drive south. My only uncertainty right now is whether I can leave on the 20th, but I think I can. My friend Tim may be joining me again, but he's not sure yet about his travel schedule in September (he works for an Italian auto supplier now, so he is frequently making trips back to headquarters, often with a layover in Amsterdam). So we have some coordinating yet to do.

Please keep me posted.

Best,
Brian

Brian, I'd like to remind you, that those times it was Karin driving, not me. I'm much more relaxed as I'm much older...

I'll keep you informed on our plans. What is Martijn or John, and Rick doing?

Ha! Yeah, sure, blame the wife. Though, I agree, Karin seems to share your preference for the fast lane, too. Must be why you two get along so well ...

Martijn and Jon also plan to drive.  Not sure about Rick.

I have made my flight reservations for the Euro event. I arrive the morning of the 20th, so am not inclined to jump in and drive on that day. Martijn and I are planning to head out on Wednesday, to arrive in Italy on the 22nd.

Ok and we're back .

So the Event is only a few months away, and we are working on several things at the moment to make this a smooth and enjoyable Event.
The places still available a month ago are all filled and booked now. And for now we're not taking any more in.

So its time to send in your introductions ... with these guidelines ;

A small introduction :  Max 20 sentences ( Who are you....Where you're from...  What you do for a living  ... Why you love your car ... Who is the one sitting beside you ...) you what we mean ...  With a picture of you and your car... That's it.  Please send this to my mail address before the end of this month .... Yes I know not much time but it will take you no more then 1 hour of your time ...  :)

Then for those who would like make use of our  "half way Hotel " In Freudenstadt Germany ... Please let me know this month .

A new newsletter with extended information about our trip is in the making and we will add a lot of information about the program .

And last but not least ... The additional Payment of the budget should and must be in before the end of August . So if you are planning a holyday make your payment before you leave ... Or it will be spent I know how it works.

For questions or remarks please contact me directly or with a PM .

Greetings from the 2016 Euro Event Team ..

Good question .. I will send each and every attendee a separate mail . Because there are some single members that will attend , there is some deduction in cost for those .  The team will work out how to calculate this . It will not be as simple as to divide it into 2 ... because there are costs that will not be affected if there is participation with one or two. We normally work with the knowledge that there is a team present.
And yes a single attendee is discriminated in costs ... As is usual the case in Hotels . I will contact you all for this asap.
Normal teams ( that is with 2 present ) can transfer the amount stated in our flyer , but again we will contact you as well. 
 
Then there is a question how to send the introduction ;

 Well a simple text document and a not too big picture separate please . You can even just put your text in a mail ( only max 20 sentence )   and enclose a picture separate .

Greetings the 2016 Euro Event Team
