IMPORTANT ANNOUCMENT ABOUT FRANK'S CHARITY TRACK DAYS @ BLYTON

VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!!
PLEASE READ!!!

Things have come to my attention lately that I never thought I would have to address at my charity track days.

As of now, the number of free extra drivers/passengers is limited to 2 per car, and I MUST have their names in advance of the day.

If for any reason you want to share your car between more than 3 of you, please contact me in advance to discuss, I'm not unreasonable, I just want to check that everything is ok, and above board.

Under no circumstances is anyone attending my days allowed to sell their extra drivers spaces as "experience days", to try and get commercial gain from a charitable event.

If I find out that you are profiting from these charity days, you will be asked to leave with immediate effect, not be allowed back on the track, and banned from future events.

THIS IS NOT IN THE SPIRIT OF THE DAY.

Thank you for your time, cheers Frank.

The person in question has been advertising an "experience day" and charging 100 per person.
At the last day they had 7 extra drivers... :-(

I have emailed them to let them know they are no longer welcome at my days.

Good on you Frank, apart from it tarnishing a great & cheap day out I shudder to think of the consequences if they had hit someone.

This is sickening.

My usual comments about money and greed purveying everything these days.

So sad.

Well done for dealing with it far better than I would have!!
I would have let them take bookings for the next one and once they turn up with customers, told them to go away. I did wonder why their car seemed to be going rather slow.....

Shocking behavior this really.

As I suspect you can't name and shame, can I ask whether it is a private individual or a 'company' as I have an experience day booked at Blyton Park on May 7th.

Cheers All

I suspect that it is the same company, but May 7th isn't one of my dates, mine are the March 18th, and September 16th.

EDIT: I charge 100 per car at my days, and include extra drivers and passengers free of charge, and have never limited it, I also include photos.
I don't earn anything out of these days, all the money is donated to charity and good causes.
The day in March raised over 1500 towards treatment of a little girl that has a very aggressive form of cancer, and a further 200 to a small children's charity that I support.

Just read on FB that not only have MK got the cheek to have done this - but even now they are still advertising these experience days at Franks TDs.
Crappy behaviour.

I wish I didn't have to do what I've done, but naming them seems to be my only option as they won't reply to my emails or remove my dates from their website.

There is another way to talk to the offenders...... it involves a doorbell.
