brands easter friday/CSS easter sunday

i will be do doing brands indy on good friday (25th march)

and myself and rob (electric sheep) will be doing the CSS at rockingham on easter sunday both on level 4 i think.

would be good to see anyone else who wants to join in on either of these. i think we will stay over in rockingham on the saturday night.

i'll be on my desmodue bike so i'll be good practice for anyone wanting to hone their overtaking skills

Michael W and I are are off to almeria with the css to try to learn to ride these monster things. I may try to come to brands on the 25th if the price is low enough, who is running it.

focused events are running brands on the 25th.

yeah really wanted to do the almeria trip but couldn't get the time off work. dont have the money either really but would have done it anyway. very jealous.

could struggle on the back straight there a bit on the monster. will probably have people going past you doing 50 mph more or so!

Hey Dickie - depending on which days off at work are the problem, you could fly to Malaga and hire a car. 3hrs or so to Almeria according to the AA so not exactly close but later flights available.

If you don't need too much sleep and could leave early on the Friday, you could get the Easyjet flight from Stansted at 18.00 (gets in 21.55, so not to bed 'til 1ish) returning home on Sunday at 21.55 (arrival 23.50).

Or if you really can't leave work until later, Luton - Malaga at 19.25, arrival 23.10 and back Sunday 23.55, arriving 01.40 (or back to Stansted if you can get the train on the way out and Mrs DD will pick you up).

Go on, if you can, it'll be fun

I would like to make a better suggestion........

Come to Cadwell Park on Thurs 24th, yes the Thursday before Easter.

You will get training of a standard equal to ESS, especially since most of our instructors teach with them

We also go further, we teach you tips on mental approach, how to look after yourself to get the most out of your day so that you learn more.

We teach in a classroom as well as on the track

You get lunch and refreshments all day, included in the price

Best of all, you will be supporting two of your members in a new venture, as such we will give a discount to DSC club members.

Phone me to reserve a place
