^^^TRACKDAY, Knockhill - Sunday 14th October £79^^^

Post by minisaki » Sun Aug 26, 2018 8:10 am

Monthly meet for October will be this track day. This is an excellent opportunity to see what your car does and the difference to driving on the road. (I'm by no means that fast on track as it's very different to driving on the road). It's a session day so hopefully with enough of us we'll almost have a session to ourselves. Knockhill is an excellent track (although we seriously lack grunt for the uphill pit straight) and it's a fair price especially compared to other tracks. Although I would strongly encourage you all to get out on the track still come along even if you don't want to. If you bring a helmet (I'll be bringing a spare) you can obtain a passenger band for £10 I'm happy to take people out and sure a couple of others will be too.

Please follow the link to buy your track time:

Sign me up, though I may have to wait a week or 2 before booking/paying for it!

Never been round a track before, what sort of kit to beg/borrow/buy? Assume a helmet will be the minimum, rock climbing ones not count?

Cheers,
Kris

You need a helmet although you can hire one from Knockhill, No leaks from the car and nothing loose in the boot. Remember to bring your driving licence. You get all details about rules etc in the drivers meeting in the morning. Your first time on track can be a little nerve racking however don't be worrying as accidents are pretty rare considering the environment. Nobody goes wanting to crash (the whole time I've been there I've only seen 2 serious crashes, 1 was a lad who was trying to drift a Pug 206 went sideways in the gravel and rolled however he clearly left any talent at home an the second was on a parade lap down to one guys stupidity)

Looks like a good day for it considering the recent rain! Hope you chaps enjoy it.

Sorry I didn't make it along. Been doing bits on the car all week in prep only to find yesterday the rear calipers were in a bit of a state so ended up staying up to the wee hours sorting it and tracking in a couple of hours sleep didn't seem the best idea. Next time!
