    You can just turn up and do a lap... or 2 or 3 or more.. Depending on how many people there are at the ring that day for how long you wait inline to get on it.. Also you can hire the ring taxi and take a lap and i think they still have car hire too.

    If you can, join a trackday at Spa-Francorchamps

    About driving fast in Europe, be aware... There are now tons of fixed speed cameras, lots of mobile controls, etc.

    If you're caught doing 100MPH and up, you'll likely end up with about 500$ of fine, ban from driving, etc...

    Only Germany is still "normal"...

    A GPS is a must. If you have a TomTom, bring it, and buy the maps of western europe on the website.

    A popular stop in France is the Reims Circuit. It was closed down a long time ago, but a group of local enthousiasts is trying to preserve the pit boxes and grand stands. You're quite likely to see other enthousiasts pull over. (The 360 on the picture below arrived about 5 minutes after I got there)

    I don't know if you have planned to come to the lake of constance area but if you will come let me know and we can go for a nice ride. It is a very nice area and a good staring point for great driving tours. If you need help with a rental car let me know.

    I don't know if I will get a chance to go to Italy on this trip, I'm going to be in and around the U.K. most of the time. But I did get tickets for the British GP and am waiting to hear back on tickets to see Top Gear

    I should check out the Lotus and Aston Martin factories though...
