@shylo1981 Hey, I’ll be there for the weekend although staying in Frankfurt and catching a train each day but would be up for a beer between some events.
@shylo1981 well I’m not sure about that. May be a surprise to you but I am only 16. Sorry to disappoint you! However I just found out last night that the legal age for drinking beer and wine in Germany is 16 and it was my birthday last week. I guess Friday the 13th was not unlucky after all! sorry again
@hoolyF1 haha, well yes surprised, well if you and whoever is bringing you want to catch up is fine also. I spoke to the receptionist in my hotel last night, they said easiest way to get to the track is taxi, train would take around 2 hours supposedly. Taxi is only 40 min @ 35 euro. Happy to share a cab with you guys everyday. Give me a shout when…[Read more]
@shylo1981 My travel won’t be so pretty…..07:00 flight out of Dublin on Friday which will involve me getting up at 04:00. Flying in to Frankfurt and then train down to Heidelberg? Don’t really care about getting up early though, I’d do anything to get there. Looking forward to it. Is it your first GP?
@HoolyF1 yuk, couldn’t do it. Haha. Send me an SMS or call me when you’re in either Heidelberg on Friday night or at the track on Friday, will catch up for a beer… +61 403 498 682. No not my first GP, have done a few before, this is my first European GP though, should be an awesome race with how the rest of the season has been.
@shylo1981 I am staying in the Regina Hotel near the University. My aunt and uncle lived in Germany and it should take roughly 40 mins to get from Heidelberg to Hockenheim by 2 trains.
@shylo1981 I am also staying in Heidelberg. What hotel are you staying in and how are you getting to the circuit each day?
@HoolyF1, I am staying in Hotel Perko, what about you? I haven’t yet figured out how I am getting to the track each day, figured I could ask the hotel when I get there, if worst comes to worst will just get a cab, its on about 15 mile i think.
