Title: CALLING ALL EUROPEAN'S!!! Who is gonna make the effort for SCC 2015???
Post by: Lee.C on December 07, 2014, 23:26:40 pm
Right..... I did it in my manx so it can't be that hard!  ;)
(well I did have alot of help from Richie Webb and a few others!!)

I am talking about heading up to Gardermoen Raceway in Norway for SCC 2015.....

Over the last year I have made the trip from the UK to Norway/oslo several times and covered over 30,000kms so I have the route pretty well worked out now......

https://www.google.co.uk/maps/dir/Calais,+France/Deventer,+The+Netherlands/Osnabr%C3%BCck,+Germany/Puttgarden,+Germany/Rodby,+Denmark/Gothenburg,+Sweden/Oslo,+Norway/@55.0682351,-1.9706072,5z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m44!4m43!1m5!1m1!1s0x47dc3f75d7f1e363:0xacbed9e08cd279f4!2m2!1d1.858686!2d50.95129!1m5!1m1!1s0x47c7ebc9af5d5611:0xc1a40d18d98571e3!2m2!1d6.1552165!2d52.2660751!1m5!1m1!1s0x47b9e598697b5d4d:0x426cf7763005c60!2m2!1d8.0471788!2d52.2799112!1m5!1m1!1s0x47ad6442884ec387:0x880abdabe97badd8!2m2!1d11.216667!2d54.5!1m5!1m1!1s0x47ad43596af57bed:0x5f0aaca5390fda6e!2m2!1d11.389576!2d54.6937!1m5!1m1!1s0x464f8e67966c073f:0x4019078290e7c40!2m2!1d11.97456!2d57.70887!1m5!1m1!1s0x46416e61f267f039:0x7e92605fd3231e9a!2m2!1d10.7522454!2d59.9138688!3e0?hl=en

I will be doing the trip from the UK in 2015 as I am now living back in the UK but there is NO WAY I will miss SCC!!!

So who is gonna make the effort and come with me??

I am just gonna keep posting/adding info until I get some fellow road-tripper's  ;)

There is 3 cool shops to stop at on route through europe.....

PAT'S VW SHOP - Belgium

BBT-VW - Belgium

CSP - Germany


There is good restaurantes near all these shops so it makes a nice stop for a few hours to break up all the km's of Freeway  ::) ;) :)

Post by: Lee.C on December 09, 2014, 15:25:12 pm
Maybe if we time it right each shop could join us on the "Road Trip" up to SCC  ;) :)

I am gonna start a thread on the "Early-bay" forum and try and get some of the bus guys to come along.....
(Should be pretty easy to get them there when they see the prices of early bay stuff in norway!!!)

I really want to get some more "Outsiders" up to SCC, People don't realise just how many Cool/Quick cars there is in Scandinavia!!!

Maybe some other members could start some threads on Swedish, Danish, Finnish, & German forums.... Please  :)

Lets make SCC 2015 the Biggest & Best Yet!!!  ;D

Post by: Lids on December 14, 2014, 19:09:11 pm
As I said above, depends on bus.  But just out of interest how long does it take to drive


Title: Re: CALLING ALL EUROPEAN'S!!! Who is gonna make the effort for SCC 2015???
Post by: Lee.C on December 14, 2014, 19:37:25 pm
From London to Gardermoen its roughly 2day in an Aircooled car/bus.......

You can do it in less than 24 hrs but its nice to have a stop/rest somewhere around the top of Germany or copenhagen :)

The route I showed above is about the "Easyest" route, Very simple and straight forward, Lots of sign posts etc ;)


Title: Re: CALLING ALL EUROPEAN'S!!! Who is gonna make the effort for SCC 2015???
Post by: Christoph on December 14, 2014, 22:01:19 pm
This is exactly our route back from this years SCC, from Hamburg we were heading to Hannover. We started 10:00ish in Gardermoen and arrived home 3:00 next morning, heavy rain all the way. If I can make it next year ill considering the fairy Kiel-Oslo for both ways  ;)


Title: Re: CALLING ALL EUROPEAN'S!!! Who is gonna make the effort for SCC 2015???
Post by: Lids on December 14, 2014, 23:05:35 pm
how many hours per day driving is that?


Title: Re: CALLING ALL EUROPEAN'S!!! Who is gonna make the effort for SCC 2015???
Post by: Lee.C on December 15, 2014, 00:55:24 am
As many as you can do  :D :D :D :D

It depends on weather and traffic etc.......

The last section, Copenhagen- Gardermoen can take anywhere from 9-10hr up to 16-18hrs..... There can be crappy weather on this section as its near the coast... I have dome that section in 8hrs but it has taken me ALOT longer  :-\ :)

My normal "Plan" after the ferry to france is just to see how far you can get into Germany and go from there  :)

Rumours has it that a ferry service from Newcastle to Bergen and Stavanger is being planed. If so then that might be an option. The drive from Bergen or Stavanger to SCC is considered one of the best by Top Gear. You can also use the Ro-Ro freight boat going from Hull/Immingham to Brevik. It is not a full service ferry but the price is OK and the drive from Brevik to SCC takes about 2.5 hours or so. You are able to get a cabin on board.

Interesting, sounds like a more doable route with a kid in tow.

Great travel info there..... Thanks guys!

If I'm coming with a my VW on a trailer a more direct ferry & shorter drive sounds better.

I can understand people wanting "Less driving" but the only thing to remember is the extra costs on the ferries for trailers  :-\

Just be carefull as sometimes its ridiculas money.......

In my bus doing the route shown above its approx 4-5 tanks of fuel, depending on traffic/average speed/weather etc

The uk-france ferry is approx 40-100 return (depending when you book and this is WITHOUT a trailer!)

The Second Germay-Denmark ferry is approx 75.00 (you can get a return for approx 120)

The Bridge/toll into Sweden is approx 40

oh and the little toll into Norway is approx 3.00  ;)

Another tip is that Germany can be a little funny with "Card Payments" so some Cash/euros will be useful.... Everywhere else is fine with cards, But remember DENMARK, SWEDEN & NORWAY all have different Currencies ie NOT EUROS!!! This caught me out on my first SCC trip  :D :D :D

Please feel free to ask any more question  :)

If you do not want to do the tour "back to Germany" on August 7-9 there is a race at Kjula/Sweden that same weekend. I can HIGHLY recommend Kjula for those that are interested in drag racing, vintage, camping and a good party in their party barn. And Kjula is on the way to SCC the weekend after.

Too bad there wasn't more cars from abroad this year. Scc 2015 had awesome weather, perfect track conditions and a lot of nice cars!!
The skinne beetle almost made a 7 sec pass :)

Maybe we will see you next year?

Btw Lee.. Where you there?

With the Norwegian krone being at its lowest value ever toward just about all other currencies I would have thought that would help. I noticed cars from Finland, Sweden, Germany and Belgium being there. We had two fast Swedes on the track giving us a good show both days.

Next year with the new track and new depot area I hope more foreign visitors and racers will be tempted to come to the woods and have some fun with the rest of us.
