Might be a little early, starting to put together some plans. Not sure whether it would better to stay in Amsterdam or Bremen? How is the seating? Is it worth to go VIP or just sit with the commoners? Would it be better to rent a car or shuttle there?

TBH, the VIP at the last two events seemed underwhelming. Other than the warmth and dryness - I wouldn’t think it’s worth the money.... and full disclosure.... I didn’t set foot in either of them.

Me and the wife are going, then doing 4 days in Amsterdam then 2 weeks in Italy. Should be a killer time.

Sort of interested in this.. and there is plenty of time to make it happen. Flying out of Vegas to Amsterdam and back is anywhere from $950-$1300 as of now. Found a cheap room and would likely be going alone. Probably wouldn't be very smart of me since I've never left the country and also haven't been further than Salt Lake City.. lol. Probably get a poll going on if I'm ever seen again

crew in michigan thinking about it as well. thinking straight flight into amsterdam then an hour to the track.

You guy's need to be there to back your team if they have any chance or not of winning. Add in what you're going to see and experience while over in those parts and it will be a trip you'll never forget and probably life changing moment

I stayed in Groningen just to the north of Assen for just about two weeks during the 1984 ISDE, the town and locals were very nice as were the downtown bars from what I can remember.

Make Amsterdam part of the trip!

Rent a car.

Stay local to Assen on Saturday. Soak up the atmosphere into the night! Don't waste your time driving from Bremen or Amsterdam to Assen and back both days, you're talking 8+ hours in total man, that's without getting in/out of the track. You'll half that by staying local Saturday night, head to the beer tent and talk moto!

VIP is ok, but save your money, the atmosphere is better with the commoners in any case!

Consider staying in Groningen Sunday night after Assen and checking it out the following day - cool place!

I used to live over there, Groningen is the place to stay during the races, just catch a 15min bus or train to the track. Also camping by the track is unbelievable fun if you wanna go that route too.

Of course while there make sure to visit amsterdam and do the usual tourist stuff.

In my experience, the Netherlands is one of the easiest places for an American to travel in Europe as almost everyone speaks English. Fly into Schipol, stay in Amsterdam and do the tourist stuff. Then, rent a car and stay closer the track the weekend of the race. Driving is easy just brush up on the local laws. I like orbitz for car rental as you can see the actual size car that you are getting. When they say compact, they mean compact.

Traveling to Europe is awesome and the Netherlands is a pretty cool country to visit, but it is flat, I mean like southern Florida flat!! However, I fear the top Americans don't show up this year though after the poor showing at Red Bud. And, holding a motocross race on a pile of sand in a road racing circuit is a bizarre choice. There are so many cool tracks on the GP circuit, I never heard the back story of how they chose this location? Was it just who would pay Luongo the most money?

As above, try & stay Groningen for race weekend if you're not camping at the track. Traffic can be slow and i wouldn't fancy 2-3 hr drive each way from 'dam to the track each day.

the grandstand viewing is really good but even at the GP it's really busy and anywhere undercover is taken all weekend. Not sure how they are going to fit everyone in for MXdN as there isn't really any in-field viewing for GP.

Why in God's name would you stay like 2 to 2,5hrs of traveling away from the event?

Amsterdam is beautiful, but Amsterdam does not give you a good picture of the Netherlands. The Netherlands is more than the red-light district and drugs. I would say that you should view more than Amsterdam.

This, when I visited Amsterdam 2 weeks ago with a friend from Mexico. I told her it feels like a foreign city... I suggest staying in Groningen and like someone allready said, rent a car.

So have I in the past. But then you stay there for like 4 days and then go back. 5hrs is a waste of time if not needed. Just find hotel in Assen or Groningen.
