Latest post of the previous page:

I went to Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in 2005 and 2006 for the F1 weekend. Both years, I came on all 4 days. I also went on Friday in 2009 and 2010 for the NASCAR Nationwide Supports pratice/qualifying sessions. I also walk the track once or twice a year :)

Went to the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières in 2002 and 2005, both years I came on all 3 days.

In fact i have "visited" another track. The "Pagedal-circuit" in my hometown Stadskanaal. It hosted 2 moto races and was abandoned after a fatal accident during the second event.

Well can't say I've had the money to race or go watching abroad but have visited on numerous occasions:

Mallory Park
Cadwell Park
Silverstone
Donnington
Snetterton
Lydden Hill
Oliver's Mount (Cock o' the North)
Alwalton (stock cars)
Foxhall stadium (stock cars)
Croft
Billown (Southern 100)
IOM TT course (A spirited drive round with my dad, scaring the shit out of my mum)

Strangely, even though it's practically on my doorstep I've never been to Rockingham
Planning a road trip next year or year after to take in Spa, Nurburgring, Monza, Monaco, Clermont Ferrand, Le Mans, Reims and Rouen.
