          Weekend will cost you about 5-600 quid, thats having a good time with track time as well. We were last there in Sept and ticket was 70euros for 4 laps

          Insurance is up to you. You normal insurance more than likly wont cover you, you will need track insurance for the ring( think its about 3-400 quid for a weekend, Spoons can advise on this)

          Take with you spare wheel small selection of hand tools (nothing major) get a decent tyre pressure gauge then the normal legal stuff for europe..... high vis vest, bulbs 1st aid kit (dont have them and your stopped you get a big fine m

          The Green Hell Club is arranging another trip again around May/June time, be careful on dates as its a busy time for the ring, as yet the ring have not given clear track dates for normal users due to vln racing. It will show on the site that the track is clear to go on, but you dont want to book, turn up and find out a vln race is on that weekend, and you end up with about an hour on the sunday afternoon.

          Last thing, just have fun, its not a race, enjoy the place, its fantastic, the vxr's were made for that place, but you dont want to kill it there , for your 1st time try and go with a group, people who have been before will show you how to enjoy it the most
