The Sachsenring.

Well unfortunately this is the last weekend of our trip, but this is a least partly made up for by being able to watch the Moto GP. We found our way to the track fairly easily using Mr Zumo, and parked the bikes for a small fee in a garage about 100 yards from the main entrance. We were also able to leave our kit safely locked up.

There was a party atmosphere, with large crowds for a Friday, and many food and retail stalls. Much more than I've seen anywhere else, and the types of food were very varied.

Our stand is close to the entrance for once, and we have a great view, with a giant TV screen opposite us. Race day should be good.

On the way back to the hotel I was pulled over by the police, as you can see from the photo. Elvie thought it was all very amusing, as she wasn't made to produce her documents. The young man spoke good English, but made the mistake of asking the purpose of my trip! By the time I'd only got half way through the lists of countries visited, I could see he regretted the question.

And now we are safely back at the Etap. There were a bunch of bikers from the Isle of Man sitting outside, drinking a beer and relaxing. They have recommended a restaurant in town, so tonight a taxi is in order. LB
