April is too soon as that only gives you 5 months to save about £1,500 to pay for the trip :( , hence why we are suggesting October instead :thumleft:

That’s a surprise James. At 410 miles return drive it to far for me to drive and too costly.

I’ll be rebooking Silverstone GP with Javelin for 2022, as soon as the November date is released.

Was probably my favourite track day so far, and keen go back! Would be great for it to become a recurring event for the club.

Silverstone have announced they will not host 3rd party TDO events in 2022 which suggests any track days there will be more expensive than currently with independent TDOs.

No dates announced, but their website says ‘from £319’..

Looks like that was the first and last time I’ll be driving Silverstone Image
