Assen

When we went, we got on the Eurostar from Folkestone (lived in Kent) and then rode up via France, Belgium etc.  Really really boring ride.  In Holland the roads are so damn straight and wide it was no fun even on the smaller routes, they were the same as the motorways just with lower speed limits.

I'd say the route depends on where you live.  You can get on a ferry from Hull and also from Newcastle which might be a better option.

Get yer hotels booked NOW !

My mates always do the Gp in holand .He had the last room available in the "nicer" hotels in Groningen ( best place to stay, best fun ) I can recommend a hotel call the wouldzoom  in a village called speir or spear .Its a few miles from the track very nice but quiet in evenings .It has a spar ,steam room  and jacuzzi and very reasonably priced if you`re taking the missus.But Groningen is the THE town ( a cheaper mini Amsterdam ) Unless you can get a mate ti get you in a room at Asssen town forget it , you gotta book that  before Xmas all the french ,germans Spanish and the rest of Europeans all aim for there .Hope this has helped You .

Stay in Groningen

Assen is simply too small to cope with all the visitors.

Bastion hotel about 10 mins outta town is good. Bit like a travelodge but with bar and breakfast. decent clean rooms and decent price.

Like others say route depends on where from.

we do Calais, Antwerp, close to utrecht then up the coast motorway is think route 7 but not checked, definitely better than the altenative via Amersfoort etc

camping

there is plenty of camping, but the longer you leave that you will be further away from circuit, as said b&b etc needs booking early,

the route i took was from calais, and if i remember right there is only three roads to remember, not very exciting,

but the atmosphere when you get there makes up for the shit ride, great flowing circuit....enjoy

Yeah and

If you go on ferry, make sure you havnt drunk a good while before you get off and go into Holland.Oh and on race day and morning after aswell . Cos the cops are very keen with the breatherizer at the Hook port.
