I can book tickets now there and back for £29!!! tues to tues. This frees up budget for the rest of it.
that's from station to station, how much it will be from the airport to the station I don't know
What I need from you all is a definite body count.
So, who is going and who is not?
now......just gotta get plane tickets, hotel in Bologna, figure out when to visit Florence, Siena, Modena, & Venice, figure out train schedules, and learn to read & speak Italian.........hmmmmmm
I shall be there!!! hmm i think food could be sacraficed to pay for it ;) certainly not drink! ;)
Sorry to take the convo off track for a moment, but are you doing the Minardi launch in Melbourne, OzMinardi? I mean, getting a press pass organised?
How tomorrow sound instead? I have the day off so any time is good. What time works for you?
I just talked to Murph on the phone and he was not sure.

Murph has a few more details but I am waiting on a solid body count.
People - let us know if you are in or not - there were alot of you interested so now is the time to say ya or nay. I then have to give this number to Faenza and start work on their end.
Remember too that this is their home GP and that with a proper count of people they are going to try and get us a seating discount and possible set us with other Minardi fans/clubs/employees etc.
RJ - need to talk to you real quick on dates and times. Look for an email from me.
I'd better face it, the only hope I have of ever seeing a GP is in Indy. Lodging is free, travel's cheap, meals are paid for by cronies.
Just once, though, it'd be nice to go to a foreign race...
This is going to be the F1 race of a lifetime.
are we looking at a weeks trip??? As the faster us Europeans book airline tickets the cheaper they are (well on the economy airlines they are anyway)
Are we going to get a group booking at a single hotel??? That would work out as cheaper. Im wiling to look into that........... sorry got interupted by a virus turning my pc off, now what was i going to say?........
Id try and look at the hotel options if i knew the number of people??? in bologna??

I think it would be a good idea for all the Brits to sort their travel accomodations etc. RJ is close and Salvo is coming from Palermo so ....
This is why we need EVERYBODY to confirm if they are going or not and what their plans are.
Today, talked to Emmo on the phone about rooms. We thought it would be advantageous to try to book rooms close to the RR station and that we could hopefully all be in either the same hotel or in hotels in close proximity.
This evening, I started to go through a number of hotel websites, to see what was available. I was distressed to notice that some of the hotels that showed they had rooms available last week for Sunday April 17 (when my wife and I would arrive from the states) till April 25, were now booked. Now, most were not booked all 8 days.....but were booked over the weekend of the 17 and also were booked on April 24. I searched and found a hotel near the RR station that had a double room available for 690 Euro's....I booked it but when I attempted to book a twin bed room for the Irish Brigade, the room was taken ...yet it had been available just a few minutes earlier. I cancelled the double room and continued searching. I finally was able to book 2 of the last 3 double rooms available at the Hotel Executive....the good news is that the total cost for the 2 rooms for 8 nights was $1500 dollars, US....comes to $750 per room which is less then I will be paying for 5 nights at Indy this June for the USGP. That hotel is just about 1 mile from the RR station. I got these 2 rooms through www.hotels.com ..... I have emailed Emmo to let him know of the hotel situation so that he can start searching for rooms for the Left Coast set........the Irish Brigade is now set for rooms.
Obviously I'm not from Bologna, and I don't want to cause a general panic for those looking for rooms in Bologna....but I would encourage any and all who are partaking in "Minardifest 05" to start looking to see what hotels are available in their price range.......here are some hotel web sites I have been searching through.....
I hope some of this info will be of some help and that I actuall wrote down the CORRECT urls........ Looking forward to meeting many of you on what will be a memorable adventure for all.
ciao (working on my Italian.....that is all that I know at this time)
