^^^TRACKDAY Snetterton - Monday 25th March - £129^^^

Post by New Duke » Tue Jan 22, 2019 11:16 pm

I've booked another one. The latest date I could book at Snetterton before the seasonal price increase. But hopefully late enough for mild weather (dammit, that's cursed it).

Details here: https://www.msvtrackdays.com/car/calend ... rch/25-sn/, but don't book online!

GROUP BOOKING ARRANGEMENTS NOW IN PLACE!

10% off prices below on anything you book via the MSV booking number; 0843 4533000, quoting the Group Booking Code.

BEFORE you call to book, PM casey or New Duke for the code you'll need

Track place £129
Additional Driver £30
Passenger £10
Helmet Hire £10
Tuition Session £25

You'll need to provide your credit card details, which won't be billed until later (typically about 10 days before the event).

Plenty of room for newcomers to trackdays too, we do our very best to look after everyone and show you the ropes. Light refreshment services also included for free in our garages. If you've not driven an RX-8 on track before, you should try it at least once during your ownership!

If you'd like to stay for a meal afterwards (and avoid the rush hour traffic!) we usually book a table at this pub A lovely, cosy place that does good food, less than 10 minutes from the track on the way back down the A11 (where most people will be heading). Simple let us know and we can book a suitably sized table.

First timers may benefit from browsing through this section of the forum:
Trackday Info and FAQ's
and this topic, specific to Snetterton:
Snetterton Guide

Noise limit is 105dB(A) static and 92dB(A) drive-by.

Address
Snetterton Circuit
Norwich
NR16 2JU

For those unfamiliar with Snetterton, here's some in-car 2015 footage of what it looks like to drive :D

I was looking at this event a couple of days ago! Fits OK in my diary.

I'll contact Stuart at MSV later today and see if he can offer us a group discount of 10% and a few garages for free too ;)

Referring to the Snetterton day, would this be suitable to come along to with a friend, with the intention that we share the driving? Or does it require only one driver per car?

Extra drivers are not a problem, the additional driver has to pay an additional fee though. I can't see that stated fee anywhere at the moment, but typically between £25 and £40, can be paid on the day (EDIT: £30 for an extra driver, less 10% if done on a Group Booking, see next post).

Discount code is currently valid for minimum of 10 cars. I can ask for more places if there remain unsold places. Get booking :-)

I'm interested. Will be booking on Monday when the lines are open.

The car needs a shake down before I go to the Ring in April to check for any gremlins.

Malcolm, did you manage to arrange any garages too?

I have finally got around to calling up and booking! I've left my card details with them which will be billed nearer to the time, with or without the discount depending on whether the group fills up. In case anyone was wondering, I can confirm that the £129 is still applicable (for some reason, I thought it was supposed to go up over time). For the sake of the first post, I'm Mike and I'll be in an S1.

I should have said too, if you want to stay for a meal afterwards, there is a nice, cosy pub about 5 minutes from the track that we have used a couple of times. Just let us know if you'd like to stay so we can book a table;

I have a neighbour with a new (to him) first generation Z4 who may well be interested in giving a track day a shot. Since we appear to be two places away from the discount, would you like me to invite him?
