We've had a long hard think about this and we are definitely in. There will be me and Caren, Scott, Joe, James and maybe Will. That will be 4 cars.

Post by GreySilver Beast » Wed Dec 13, 2017 9:28 am

From what we have heard through the grapevine is that Chris at Circuit Days is having trouble getting a date that suits them in the first week of April :xmassad: and Chris is hoping he will have a date to release by the end of this week :!:

Javelin are yet to confirm their 2 dates that have been allocated to their Company in the first week of April :!: :!:

On a plus note a few of us are also looking at doing Spa on 1st October or 2nd October or 9th November and possibly going back to the Nurburgring on 26th October as well :xmaseek:

As soon as I know anything more, I will post up the details :xmasthumleft:

Pretty pricey once you factor accommodation in. For £380 you can do the ring in April and get cheaper accommodation

True, but it is a once in a lifetime kind of track for me. I don't think the price of the track day itself is prohibitive, but it may result in me staying in a hotel a bit further away and catch the ferry over to save some pennies - but I'll wait to see what the plan is etc. as I also don't want to be unsociable :D

Have just found out through Kelly that Circuit Days couldn't secure a date for Spa that suited them in April :(

So if any of you want to go to Spa in April then it will have to be with Javelin or with one of the other Track Operators like Gold Track etc.... :thumleft:

By the way the reason we (Marc, Kelly & Me) think it is expensive is because this years was £249 and if you wanted to do both days ie the double whammy then it was just over £440 :!:

Can I also please remind you all that this isn't an organised event in my capacity as the New Events Coordinator for the RX-8OC :!: :!:

Anyway I leave it up to all of you what you would like to do and Google is your Friend when it comes to searching for Hotel Locations and Ferry or Train prices etc... :thumright:

Just to reiterate, there'll be no convoy or group booking but I will pass on whatever deals we've got, and so far we've got some good offers for you to book that just need confirming with the organisers.
