This is a belated report on my going to all the Gps in Europe last year. First of all, it was brilliant! I started at Jerez in April and finished at Valencia in November. Most of the races were separated by two weeks or more and there was plenty of time to get from one to the next. Mugello and Barcelona were only a week apart, and I had to make progress to get to Barcelona by thursday; and Brno and Spielberg were a week apart and they are very close to each other. Because I had never done this before, I got quite paranoid about entry tickets and camp sites, and I bought all the tickets and camp site accesses before leaving the UK. I now know this is not needed. Provided I could be at the next circuit by the thursday morning, campsites were easily available and there were always tickets for sale at the circuit. They may not have been the best seats, but it was always possible to get a ticket. The most expensive circuit was Speilberg. The camping was 200 euros and the entry tickets were expensive. It is not possible to get a general entrance ticket for the whole circuit, One had to buy a ticket for- I think - half the circuit and then leave the circuit and walk round the other half. The spectator facilities were not wonderful and it was important to be able to see a big screen. Coupled with the lunatic who had bolted a CBR600 engine to a dexion frame and made an open megaphone that ended about a foot in diamater, which he ran on the rev limiter 25 hours a day on my campsite, this was probably the one I would be least keen to return to. The up side was the quite magical drive away from the circuit on the Monday morning. I could wax quite lyrically about it for hours. Sometimes things happen in my life that are indelibly etched into my brain, and this journey through the Austrian mountains at dawn will remain with me forever. The other end of the spectrum was Brno. I stayed on a campsite about a mile from the circuit. There was electricity, breakfast, evening meal, hot showers, decent toilets and a strip show every evening. I arrived on the Wednesday and left on Monday for the princely sum of 100 euros. The strippers were that good that people were bribing them to put their clothes back on again, Because I am over 65, I simply had to show my passport to get in to the circuit for free. The open spectating areas were really good, and the enormous crowd was full of joy and happiness. This is already turning into a bore, and I could go on forever. Anyone into Motogp should do this once in their life. Because it was a bucket list project, it cost what it cost and I did not monitor the expenditure. I do know that between November 2016 and November 2017, I added 21000 miles to the van, although not all of it was on the Motogp trail. If any of you want more information, let me know. The new season is now underway and the only meeting I will definitely attend is Valencia. Looking more long term, I am putting a plan together to do to Austin in 2019. You all have to go and see Marquez in real life. This man is rewriting the way to ride a bike, and he is simply astounding to watch. I have goose bumps thinking about it!
