Couple (4) days razing around Almeria a few days back.  30+ degrees each and every day :-)

So bloody jealous lol

looks like a great way to pass the time

Lord Danoir the first

Planning to get out there next year. I quite fancy the Andalusia/Almeria back to back event, plus it's only a couple of hours from ours.

Almeria looks nice and technical, which I really like.

Looking good 😎

Track looks quiet, if it was as busy as our May trip the future is looking grim.. pit lane and garages was barely half full, seems like the cost is killing it for people. Repatriation Insurance is limited and the price has gone astronomical, car hire costs have gone mental, tyres appear to be in short supply!

Better for those that are going I guess as the place is not packed any more like sardines in a can!

Hoping to make time for another trip in September if the stars Align.. want to do Jerez again...

Fast group was between 10-15 each day, the higher number when the local experts arrived to show us how to do it (insert sarcastic grin) ....

Ahh yes I forgot about the huge uplift in daily fuel costs for the bikes, time to take up bowls or something less expensive perhaps  :rofl:

Ive done a few uk double dates now.
Like snet and donny so a bit of travelling.
They're working out around £1,200 with everything included. Thats kipping in the van where possible.
Absolutely mental. But its all I go to work for so Im not quitting but might have to do less.

That's the price of a good holiday, should go to Spain and do both 😉

I know. But euros have gone up as well. Out in portimao with FE atm. Flights nearly doubled, fuel is well over €2 ltr. Fuel can hire from fe has doybled to 10€ now  :cry: the only saving to be had is what track you choose to ride.
