Track day@Blyton Park 8th of June 2024 £159 full day

Post by thatturborx8 »

Good evening boys and girls!
I will be hitting the track on the 8th of June at Blyton park.
Hopefully the weather will be great and we can meet a few more of us for chat,experience exchange and good times in general.
I will provide chairs,a tent and a toolbox :)
I also don't mind taking a passenger for those who want to experience the track without hurting their tyres :P
Tickets can be bought here:
https://javelintrackdays.co.uk/trackday ... k/BP080624

Track day starts 9am with sighting laps, then on at full speed until 12:30 when we get a one hour lunch break,then again full throttle until 5pm.
For those not familiar with Blyton,this is a good track,not too small,not too big and has been resurfaced this winter and some corners have been extended so the tarmac is fantastic.
Would recommend to turn up on a full tank as Blyton does not offer fuel services and closest petrol station is 5 miles away.

Hope to see you all there 🙂

That’s the track where my brakes failed and I went straight over the chicane. Fortunately it’s a very forgiving circuit with little to hit!! Will have to try it out again soon!!

It's very hard on brakes compared to most circuits. I turned all 4 pads to dust last time I visited, by doing a slightly longer than usual stint after lunch. Only 12 laps though.

I remember when you were doing your rear pads when we all went out the track on the club meet there?
