I know they aren't for everyone but looking through some of the threads below it seems that there are at least a few others who enjoy taking their cars out on track?

Looking at it I guess a lot of people are using the Facebook page now instead of this but I never seem to hear or see anything on their that is even the slightest track day related.?

Has there ever been a track day organised through the forum for the dedicated few? 8-)

i do quite a few, plan to do as many tracks as possible next year in the new car, idea is not to spend any money on other than service parts and just spend it on trackdays, also doing a few more European tracks ( mainly tourist sessions) but doing red bull ring, Hockenheim, Monza and Paul Ricard to tick them off the list.

Yes count me in. I am at Oulton Park on Friday. I am planning on doing a number of them next year. Rockingham is a very well organised trackday.

I'm in the fortunate position of being only 15mins from Brands so that works for me, wouldn't mind a trip up to Oulton Park though as I need to tick that one off the list in the EP3.

brands is a little boring if i'm honest, down a few there but much better tracks in the UK. Bedford is cracking for first timers or just for a laugh as its big flat and nothing to hit. Silverstone Full Gp is also a lot of fun. This time of year most are ridiculously cheap. IE today you could have done Oulton park with garage included for £100, madness.

Also worth noting which organisers are good and which ones are a bit meh. Circuit days are probably one of the best in UK, always well organised. Trackdays.de are great too for any overseas ones you see..

The full Bedford GT circuit is great fun and it's almost ideal for those who are new to track days or prefer the extra run off on the corners. Downside is it does have stricter 102dB static noise limits for a lot of events which may put some people off..

That's it mate, would be cool if a few of us booked in at the same hotel, introductions, beers and chat. What's not to like :lol:

Maybe we could get a list going of people who are interested and their track experience, like some have already mentioned, the likes of Bedford have loads of run off for those new to trackdays and worried about having a bit of an off.

I'll start...

Part of the reason why I haven't done it yet. I think a full day open pit lane you'd get bored fairly quickly. More of an evening track to blast around for only a few hours. The full track would be better but it's a lot more money.
I liked Snetterton 300. Fairly flat with a mixture of long straights and an infield.
Javelin have a weekend at Spa in April. That'll be a box to tick.

I'd be up for this. I've done Brands and Goodwood before, and I'm doing Goodwood again on 5th December with HOT. I'm happy with anywhere as long as it's not too strict on noise.
