For me the Belgium event was great VFM. Unfortunately Belgium and the Netherlands were a money pit that sucked up all my cash reserves. Ireland has now developed into a new moneypit and I have no reserves to fall back on
I know the race itself and all assorted antics will be fantastic but cash is needed to be there so I'll not be.
SSUK is way cheaper, easier to get to and a further paypacket away giving me a wee bit more financial comfort.
Anyway going to the worlds somewhere exotic would be fab if I had the cash as opposed to the virtual UK with Guinness and Euro's
