Hi Guys

Just putting it out there as I know full blown track day can be too pricey for most so hopefully this is a happy medium between a 1/4 mile event a trackday day.

As said this has been on the cards for a while now but just going to drum up some interest now to see if we can organise this.

I’ve spoken to David who organises the events themselves. It is basically a 10 cars requirement and the price for the day is £550 which equates to £55 per person.

It’s a sprint track which will run from 10am – 1pm and then – 2pm until 5pm.

November is free, and no doubt some of October (lighter day still) – The only issue is that it will be a weekday event, so usually a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday affair.

Is anyone interested in this?

http://www.curborough.co.uk/curbcnr.htm

It has on site toilet facilities, we could do a bit of FSi Picnic/BBQ/Trackday here if people would be interested as you can just have fun and you don't have to have your runs timed. We'd basically have full reign of the track all day.

Here's a video of the track.



Personally I think it would be awesome, but I would say that as it's my topic!

Any thoughts? It's Midland's based again so northerners and southerners have equal distances to travel.

Need to drum up interest to see.

2. Des
3. Happypaul

9.
10.

Bloke at my work went there in his S2000, loved even though it's a basic track.

Great prices though for the full day :D

When you thinking of it? I wanna go in whatever car I've got! Drifting in the Beemer, or powering the Pulsar :D :lol:

Yeah but you'll come away having higher limits, just do un-timed runs, see what the car and you can do as you take the corners a bit more each time and see! I probably won't bother with the timer as I'll be there to make myself grin, not compete with other times. (Okay I may do one or two timed runs just to see..!)

Des - I don't know, Maybe September+ time looking at their schedule. :)

And hey, 3 minutes from this place is Midland Karting for people who want to organise a mixture of activities :lol:
