    I have to warn you all.
    Please respect the maximum speed here in Holland.
    It is difficult. We have 100, 120 and 130 kpm.
    (62, 74, 80 miles per hour)

    Do not overtake via the (non existing) 3rt “line” at the left side of motor cars.
    There will be very much undercover police cars present (mostly black Audis) and speed control traps.
    And a wheelie = end of your driving license.
    Count on this: in the morning in the harbour: alcohol control.

    Some old Saabs, Daimler serie 3, and STR jag.

    Nope. I was there, just last week. Running on the track as part of the start of the TT-week.
    =2m10s
    You can see me running at 2:14

    And as Jaap mentioned, the police is out in force...
    Another thing to avoid are burnouts.

    My son is there, not me :110: This should be another great racing event - enjoy it!
    And congratulations, Ikkieman. Is that how the Dutch lay down rubber on the racing line?

    I do my best.  :018:
    Apparently there was a lot of rubber already on the asphalt. At least, the braking stripes were there.

    Probably the closest and without a doubt the best race this season, if not ever. Totally lost count of the different leaders/ overtaking of the front eight contenders. Great tight, close, sometimes touching fair racing, the way it should be. Bring it on. :821: :046:

    Got back to the UK Monday evening, first time in Holland loved the country the food and the way of life the roads it seems like a great place to live. Racing was excellent and thought the circuit was ideal a thoroughly enjoyable weekend.
