    Anybody going on this trip? My first time with Focussed Events after the sad demise of Circuit Moto earlier this year.

    I might do that, although the dates are just after I should pick up the keys to my new place over there.

    Done Cartagena the last two years in early March, was quite nippy first thing, but once the sun had a couple of hours it was just nice, i know the Almeria circuit is off the coast a bit, I take it, itís quite high up as well?

    Stopped there when crossing Spain in October (it was still nice and warm). Runs alongside the N340a so easy to find. I don't think it is much above sea level, and is inland a bit. Looks a great circuit to ride.

    And yes Craig, still living the dream, although back in the cold and wet UK for a few weeks. Cant wait to get back!

    Yeah it's about 30 miles inland and nearly 2000 ft up, we went there with FE in Feb about 3 yrs ago it was sleeting and blowing a gail. Having said that it wasn't that good down on the beach at Mojacar where we stayed so we probably just picked a bad week.

    Obviously a 'Gale' blowing Gail at the circuit would be wrong

    Lol, keeping the fingers crossed, I sold my wets on wheels last year. Surely it wonít rain four days on the bounce!

    Really looking forward to it, the section of track after the big horseshoe turn 3 looks fun.

    2 days down, 2 to go. To be honest Iíve struggled with this circuit until lunchtime today. Probably trying too hard. 2:02 yesterday and 1:59 today.

    Itís fast and technical, and rewarding once you start to put your lap together.

    James Hillier is here doing 1:41ís Plus Taylor McKenzie, but heís not got a transponder on.

    Glad it's going well Craig. I heard it's a bit more technical than Cartegena.

    Still in the UK otherwise I'd have popped down for the day.

    Enjoy the rest of your trip.
