Lightbulb Track riding in southern Europe

Hello everybody!

I am new to this forum, so let me introduce myself:

I am a norwegian track riding addict... I have until now spent some time in Japan, going from track to track there, riding on all the track days I could come over It has been good fun, the tracks there are simply excellent! Maybe the best in the world? When I start riding other places, I will know

The problem for me with riding in Japan is that immigration is very strict, even for a Norwegian (I never understood why the Japanese are so worried about letting in someone from such a peaceful and wealthy corner of the world, but if they don't want my $$$, then so be it...)

Without a proper visa, it really becomes a hassle to get some riding done, you can't buy a proper phone, can't register cars in your own nambe etc etc. Plus, the weather is not ideal for riding, it rains too much in the summer, especially.

So, I have been thinking of relocating to somewhere in southern Europe, most likely Spain. I am thinking of going really serious: Either buy a camping car and haul a big trailer with all my toys and gear in it, or one of those buses with a place to live in the front and a room for the toys in the back.

I guess my biggest hurdle would be to register such a car. Obviously I don't want to register it with Norwegian license plates due to our ridicilous taxes on cars...

So, if anyone has some useful advice to give, it would be most appreciated. Escpecially regarding the car, but also general tips, like where exactly is the best area to be in, links to local forums, etc etc.
