Winter sun

#1 PostAuthor: Robw » Sat Nov 05, 2016 4:11 pm

Already have had enough of the crap weather, so I am off to Cartenga in February half term. Not sure if the endurance bike or Zx7r will be the worthy participants.

Rob, only caught up with you briefly at Donington.
How was it?
I'm thinking of doing a Spain one next year?

Really good, very tricky circuit but fun. No limits organization is spot on and the hotel is quite good value.

Brian, I did Jerez last year with No Limits. Absolutely loved it. Fast circuit, not too difficult to learn. Beautiful weather. Jerez is a fantastic city too and the hotel No Limits booked us to was wonderful. I've just come back from Estoril in Portugal. Not such a positive experience. Took me 3 days to even come to terms with the track. Estoril is past it's prime as both circuit and town. Luckily a short train ride takes you to Cascais which is a jewel.

I am very tempted by Parc Moto near Barcelona for next year if anyone fancies it?

Martin, I could be up for that as I will soon become a teacher without responsibilities and can choose my working days. Well that's the plan.

Parc Moto is one of the tracks I'm interested in riding - has a crossover bridge so equal amount of RH and LH corners.
Cartagena looks tight and twisty with only one main straight so also interests me. Though not sure if I'd use a classic bike on either.

Brian, really enjoyed Cartenga, it is a tricky circuit. I took my Zx7r and wouldn't take my Lawson as I would get everything grounding out.
Hopefully I will get away for more winter sun next year.
