If you've heard of the norwegian auto festival called 'gatebil' I dont need to say much more! If you haven't heard of it, its europes largest automotive festival spaced over 3 days (12th-14th July this year) In Rudskogen, Norway. Why have I started a thread you ask? Because we are planning on driving to it this year!! It is approximately 1200 miles EACH WAY, with a eurotunnel crossing and a ferry crossing, I have spent a bit of time yesterday working out the ins and out's of the financial side and can give you an approximate sum from MY requirements, Interested? Here's the Brass tax involved.... On the basis of 4 people sharing Fuel in 1 car capable of an average of 35mpg you are looking at £420 each Which includes: Fuel there and back (slightly over estimated) Eurotunnel charges for the car and everyones ticket to cross European break down cover Travel Insurance (just incase) Ticket for the event (full weekend) Camping at the event Now I haven't factored in beer and food, and have scheduled it in a way that with 4 people sharing a car shifts could be worked to break the driving up between each person in the car making it pretty much a non-stop 22 hour drive straight through (with rests for toilets/food/drinks) Gatebil is notorious for being expensive for EVERYTHING! So beer would be picked up in either France or Belgium and food can be worked out for yourself, either extend your budget and eat there or take essentials. Obviously you'd require a number of things to make a UK Legal over in europe such as light reflectors, stop triangles etc but theres plenty of time to work such things out. Now, Who'd be interested in the convoy? This is a chance to drive through 5 countries and back for an amazing weekend full of motoring enthusiasts and ridiculous cars and driving! Here is a little video of the event should you be struggling to make up your mind! Oh and Let me know your thoughts!
