What you've said
Just wanted to say thanks for such a super weekend in Assen. The hotel and staff were spot on, the organisation was excellent, and my 3 clients had an amazing time. I can say without doubt that I will use your company again in the future.
Just a note to say how much we enjoyed our trip to the Assen MotoGP last weekend.
Everything ran smoothly and the hotel, staff and organisation was excellent. We would like to attend again next year (assuming the dates don't clash with anything) and so would like to know if you are planning the same package again for 2015. If so are you able to advise us when you have the full details so that we can book early and don't run the risk of missing out? We might even do one of the other events as well. Anyway, thanks again for a great weekend and we look forward to hearing from you regarding the above. Kind regards.
Richard and Esther Toll.
I would like to thank you for another fantastic MotoGP-event. Organization were top-class! The seats for the Race were perfect, with a good overview of the first section of the Track. And regarding the race you couldn't ask for more. Thank you again, and until next time.
Jonas from Sweden
Good afternoon john
sorry i didn't get to say goodbye before we left early this morning, very early in fact lol but just to say thanks for a superb weekend, well organised, good hotel, great atmosphere and the others there made it even better. i was thinking i had missed out not not getting with big rock but with hindsight i am pleased they had fully booked as preferred the way things went the way they did and also not being in assen itself
i hope to see you again in the future and hope that everyone got back safely
Many thanks for the Assen GP, we had a great time and everything was organised well. Further to our conversation at dinner about next years Misano/San Marino MotoGP, we definitely would like to book a package with you. We will be travelling by motorcycle (route yet to be determined) and would like to book a VIP package, but further to your comments regarding being confined to the start/finish grandstand on race day, we will require general admission tickets also. Your advice would be appreciated on this matter. You mentioned that this GP gets booked quickly so please advise when we can book.
Many thanks again for Assen and hope to join you next year.
Neil & Catherine
We invite guests to return to this section after they have attended the race and to share their enjoyment of the event with others.
