Maybe mrs Alpine and I are up for it, we have a couple of vouchers yet to be expended. PI is THE best place we have for car stuff too did it there a couple years back, was awesomeness.

I may as well use my voucher at some point so I'll check out the dates when you have the info. Don't leave it too late as it gets bloody cold, wet and windy down there after the brief Southern Ocean summer.

Hopefully it's not just a safety lecture / BMW promo spiel followed by a speed restricted convoy for a few laps. Been there done that.
Be good to drive PI though.

Unfortunately, our voucher is only for Intensive Training. I will need everyone's name and email, their date is not yet set for next year. I might setup a facebook group for this.

If we have got a few more people who hasn't got a voucher, I might try to negotiate a group discount. Of course a track day is always going to be cheaper, but you are using someone else's car.

Lol, well, I am sure we can do it another day. Once or M voucher is used up. . Besides I am not sure if Kamal is ready to take his car down. I am not sure putting down that many highway Kms either to take the car down. May be EC, but PI is probably a tad too far.

A truck will make it very costly.

I would truck it down if I can get a few weeks away from work and would love to go and chill at my gfs beach house in Berrara and maybe drive the coast a bit. But away from work next year seems unlikely!

We don't liking driving our beasts long distance. The beasts look good in the garage. Best enjoyed with a cigar, a glass of whiskey and Frank Sinatra.
