Thinking of popping along to this, got them to test my tubby yesterday, came it and 98db, but I'm going to keep some baffles with me just in case I trip the drive by.


Anyone raced at this track before? - it will be my first track day and I felt the circuit looks fairly good for a beginner, and also has higher sound limits than bedford etc.

Hi mate


brands was my first time too.. that was an evening 15 min tester session..

its great track.. can get busy depending on how many are booked in..
you will love it first time you drop to the bottom of paddock hill bend at speed.. nothing feels quite like it [Smile]

just take it easy don't go made// do not go racing anyone, don't get annoyed if slower cars go past.. start at your own pace and build up.. otherwise youll end up with a wrecked car.. corning speeds and tracks speeds are a whole new level compared to when you think you are going fast on the road

alos if you are faster than a car down a straight but he catches you every corner... let them past.

just remember have fun

that would be awesome, where do you get your track insurance from? after a bargain! as it seems to cost more than the event itself!

Hi,
If you'd like a quotation for track day insurance then please feel free to drop me a line. I'd be only too pleased to try and help out.
