Who has started booking up 2016 track days !?!?

I have and even surprised myself.

First track day of 2016 will be in under 3 weeks. Early by even my going.

Get booked, get driving!





Track days ARE the best thing since sliced bread, until I get a supercharger that is!

Nothing yet. Considering my options for next year and seriously considering selling the Velocity for something a little more practical.

Got my eye on a Caterham R400 with weather gear

My country wide sprints are arranged, Liverpool to Goodwood

Think they start April and run to October.

I will also do the 2 X FDMC events and probally one of Frank's days so a relatively busy year.

Just got to finish off the cars now, buy a HANS or tax & MOT.....

Do it ! You only live once....

I'm booked on a Caterham only track day in Flombray (France) in April - we drive down on the Friday, track day Saturday, drive back Sunday. They don't allow any trailers so it's a few hours for me in the car - which is going to be fantastic. #cantwait

I also got a load of MSV vouchers for Xmas and birthday so I'm going to try and book at least one a month next year. I'm mid point between Snetterton and brands so it's going to be exciting next year 👍🏻

Silverstone just does not interest me for some reason.

If my car had longer legs i maybe interested.

I thought the same - but did the GP circuit back in Sept and both straights (Hangar and Wellington) are no where near as long as they look once your on them, braking late into maggots and linking to becketts well is just a joy in well balanced car, and copse is just a lovely bend. Had a chap in a Z4 come up and ask what I had done to engine as he couldnt leave me straights and it was just down to the car giving me the confidence to carry speed. If youve not done it its well worth it, and at 169 (if you book in next 24 hours!) is a bargain.

Hmm ok. Something to consider. Apparently the maggots becketts complex is up there with the best GP circuits
