I might also be persuaded to go.

Depending on how many want to go (and how much it's going to cost me for
hotel etc (might have to look into sponsorship?)) - I might be able to
bring a second car.  My insurance would cost me an extra £29 per week
(due to it being one of the countries that I'm exempted from in the EU),
though - I can quite happily put a second driver on for the duration of
the trip. (as I definately don't want to drive all that way)

Once the wiki page goes up - I'll add this info...
