Hints and Tips for all things Track Day and 1/4 mile.
I'm off on a novice track day at Oulton Park in July, I drove a GTR round there on a track day last summer and been to a few race events there so I know it's a great circuit and looking forward to taking my (currently) 100% stock FN2 round there.

The one concern I have is over brake fading / glazing. I'm planning on checking my pads beforehand and replacing them if they're close to worn. Question is, how do the stock pads hold up on a track day? Should I replace them with new stock pads if they're worn, or should I replace them regardless with some more capable pads? The car needs to be drivable in normal road conditions too so any non-standard pads I fit need to work just as well when cold & wet. Any recommendations and tips are welcome...

Christ! Change your pads. personally the stock pads are gash even on fast road use. I'm using stoptech pads at the moment but I've toasted these as well. As Lewis says the ferrodo ds2500 are ment to be really good. I'll be getting those on for next summer no doubt
