FAQ's

What can I expect from the day?

A fantastic, fun filled day where you can explore your cars performance safely and with friendly, like minded individuals who will be equally as interested in your car as you probably will be theirs. Safety is paramount but the day is yours to enjoy, you will have lots of track time available to you, yet you can relax with us and other guests as much as you like.​

What format will the event run in?

We will have 3 sessions on a rota basis, after the safety briefing your car will have a small, removable coloured sticker placed in the corner of the windscreen, so if for instance your sticker is red, your track session will be with the other 'red' group. These individual sessions are 20 minutes long, then it will be the turn of the next group and then the next, so you will have a 40-minute break before going back out again. if this doesn't sound a lot, bear in mind 20 minutes of hard driving will be a reasonable amount for most road biased cars so it will allow time for your cars' tyres and breaks to cool and allow you some time to take a break and spectate. Later in the day as and when people start to depart, it is likely you will have more time as there will be less people occupying the track at the same time, but it of course depends on the day and how many people stay until the very end.​

Will the event still go ahead if it's raining?

Yes, it will, we will carry on and just be more careful!
