So leading on from this being mentioned in the Top Gear thread, who'd be interested in a trip to the Isle of Man next Spring / Summer??

Ferry across with the Steam Packet company, our choice of accomodation - from £60 downwards, a trip out to http://www.duketrackdays.com/ for a karting event, and a few spirited drives in between.

quote:Unlike the UK there is no national speed limit. There are speed restrictions in built up areas, but after passing a 'National Speed Limit' sign there ceases to be any speed restriction, although people driving in a reckless manner may well be stopped by the police.
Not to forget the 24 hour pubs and clubs in Douglas :D

I was just talking to my mates about that yesterday. Definately up for that. We should see if we can rent out the track/airfield as well. Would love to completely let loose knowing there are not walls/barriers to slow me down.[:-banghead]

Kin I'm glad you didn't go up north with us cause you would have really suffered without the Spa, but we did have secure parking[:-bonc01]

Massage is always nice after a long drive or trip, might sound girly but its the best. [}:)]

Underground parking is essential though, I would think anyway.

Do I know Mr Berlingo? [:-boggled]

Am trying to get prices on the ferries - but I don't think theres a ferry over during the winter months, so it won't display a price online! Have sent an email to try and get approximate prices

I think this is gonna be a hell of a lot of fun...let's make this happen and book it early.
Try explain fun to anyone else in your office, they all ask is...

"So you are thinking of going over to the Isle of Man with a loads of BMW cars? What are you going to do there?" [:-boring]

KM "Errm, no speed limits there outside of the town centre." [:-dopey]

"So you are going over just so you can speed around the place?!" [:-indifferent]

KM "Errm, I got to go... do some work" [}:)]

"You going to check your car again!?" [:-irked]

Who fancies the Hilton??

Have also found out theres a package where they close off the section of track used by Top Gear the other night for private use... that might be a bit too much though :D
