Never been on track with a supercharged one before, so looking forward to seeing you there. You'll probably surprise most of the FD crowd with that thing.

As it is most likely a simple strip, check and fit new seals job keeping porting as is so as to match the map already on the car and then as I am pulling the motor out myself I may as well go the extra mile and do the strip and build myself is where my head is at currently.
That is if the motor does actually require a rebuild as with compressions of mid to high 4s it starts fine hot or cold.

Hello,

A little update for everyone and hopefully good news! Price is still hanging on at £179 and I have been informed that Blyton is stoked about hosting a rotary track day so close to 7s Day. As a result, if we manage to sell out by 1st June, that is 24 confirmed cars then the price will be dropped to £160 and everyone will get a £19 refund by Magnitude Events!

Remember, this track day includes the track day, breakfast, lunch, snacks, free photos, driver training opportunities, and passenger rides in a 620hp supercharged E92 BMW M3!

Also, it's club format so there will be limited cars on the circuit at all times to ensure you don't get held up by anyone on the circuit!

Sign up or lose out! I think we have 10 cars signed up and paid so far, so there are 14 car spots left AND don't forget you can book as a spectator/passenger to come along to the track day even if your RX-8 isn't working!

I'm quite interested in doing this but not having done a track day in my RX8 yet I'm am a little worried about passing the noise limits. My RX8 is street ported with a decat and catback and runs a pop and bang map so although it sounds amazing is it likely to pass the 95db drive by test? If it's going to be marginal is there an easy way of testing it?

It is the crackle that is likely to be the biggest noise issue. Is the decat a straight pipe and what is the back box? A ghetto decat with a Toyo back box on my old car came out at around 90db FYI

The decat is a straight pipe and I'm not sure what make the back box is. If yours does 90db I'd guess mine probably is pretty similar. I'd probably have to be careful not to suddenly back off when I'm at 9000rpm as when you do it makes a heck of a bang :-) I just wish there where more tunnels near where I live in Malvern! Maybe I'll try doing a test drive by a decibel meter app to at least give me an idea of where I'm at.

I wouldn't worry on the track day. The last time I was there they had a Lotus Exige Cup 430 that was outputting 111 dB on my phone app and they never black flagged him despite you being able to hear the car from a couple miles away, haha.

Giving this a bump. Given the recent success of the Combe day, I know we have more people who'd want to support a rotary only track day!

What time does it start and finish? I just moved to the UK from Australia, I brought my Rotary car but it’s very very loud. Do they have any issues with sound at the track? It’s a N/A non turbo car but has a little over 400 bhp at the wheels as it’s a 13bpp periferal port. Hopefully it will be ok, if so I’ll book my ticket. Oh does it matter that I don’t have an RX8? It’s a 1974 RX4 coupe, I was hoping to come with the RX8 guys as they don’t have an old school Mazda club here, am I able to attend?

Mazda Rotary Club, www.mazdarotaryclub.com is UK based and welcomes all rotaries. However, a lot of us on here love old school rotaries too :D

Subject to noise, I can't see why you wouldn't be allowed to attend this "rotary only" day. There is usually no "formal" static noise test at Blyton Park, but there is a drive-by noise mic, 20m from the circuit at "Twickers" bend, which trips at 95dBA, so you may well exceed that limit?

Have a look here for the full track noise policy:
