Just letting you all know that the Trackdays in July with Javelin are selling out fast, so get booking using the Club Discount Code :thumleft:

If you are still thinking about joining AdamGaltress and GSB at Croft in August, then we strongly suggest booking a place as this will sell out pretty soon once all the July dates sell out :!: :!:

MOT - There are still places available on Blyton Park October, Oulton Park November and Brands Hatch December =D>

Circuit Days - Dates from August are still available =D>

MSVT & OpenTrack = It's hard to tell the numbers as there websites don't give any indications on their track lists :(

When you get track insurance do you tell them you have a disability badge on the car?

Only just found out Spa in October is not happening.(by reading on here) .Think we booked it through Track Time ,(a mate did all the organising) , so when I told him what i had read on here ,he checked and they confirmed Our date was now gt racing or something... What a P!sser.. Anyway we have had a refund for the track day and decided to still go on them dates (covid allowing) and watch a bit of the racing and go to the Nurburgring for a few laps there, so all's not lost.

From Dave Woodall aka OpenTrack :thumleft: - Events Team
A quick update for the 4th July "Your Independence Day"

Passengers must be from the same household or support bubble. Additional drivers are OK with the car being cleaned during swap over. There is a maximum of 2 additional drivers and 2 passengers per car. No spectators. An essential helper is OK.
From the 4th July 1-2-1 in-car tuition (by our instructors or private hire ARDS instructors) will be permitted. Driver and instructor must have either a full face, visor-closed helmet, or open face helmet with a face mask. Private hire ARDS instructors must show their license for checking. Passengers that are not providing professional instruction must continue to be from the same household (or support bubble) as the driver.
From Saturday 4th July overnight camping will be permitted at all venues (except Donington Park and Bedford Autodrome) the night before or the night between two consecutive track days. In line with the restriction on access to the venue, camping will only be permitted for staff, participants and essential helpers. Toilet facilities will be available overnight. Showering facilities will not be. Catering will continue to be a takeaway service with outside seating.

2M distance from everyone that is not from your household including our team. Consider the needs of others. Don't come if you are isolating/shielding/have the known symptoms etc.
