WSBK Monza
on: March 10, 2013, 08:06:58 AM
I'm going down to Monza with my son for the WSBK round in May - anyone else going to be there?

We're going through the Eifel, Black Forest, through Chur and over the Julier Pass (open all year).




I have to buy a tent now because my son wants to camp, and I need a very comfortable 'matress'. Any recommendations?

Why not leave your son camping and book into a nearby hotel  :164:

Mika,


I would say, that your recommendation is the best there ever could be.


Doc ????  You have been advised.   :164:


Tho your son may not like it !!!! :003:

Keep it on the Black Stuff or Dirt - BUT - Rubber Side Down.  Else it hurts!

Mmm...

...abandon my son in a camp site surrounded by pissed-up Europeans burning each others wooden funiture on a makeshift camp fire that was the B-B-Q just a few hours earlier...

...I could do that.

Top advice on this site... :745:

PS. Just remembering Monza, May 2000. Hotel sounding good. :028:

Will be at Assen on the 28 April too - day trip from here!

5th and 6th in first race  :028:

Hi Doc,
I was in Monza WSB in '11, and the camping is very funny.
Total mayhem including bikes hitting limiters, car engines mounted in  shopping trolley's just to be revved, chainsaws with the cutting bar removed just to be revved etc but come about 12.30am all the noise stops and its quite peaceful until about 6.30am... I thought Assen was crazy (it is!) until I went to Monza

I have one of the "Therm-a-rest" type, selfinflatable, light-weight mattresses. Very small too, you get them in trecking shops or the like. Not the cheapest, but the best  :062:
Around the world and back ... driven Honda motorbikes all over Europe, Australia, NewZealand, Japan, Russia .....
