I take my plates off but there is no trail anywhere of any of my cars on forums that can identify the cars I take on track with me.
Why do you feel the need to hide the identity of the cars you take on track and why are you on any forum if you are not posting about the great cars you drive. I do find it odd you don’t post any photos, even of the cars you own.
I had a really bad warranty experience once that makes me very nervous about tracking a car that can be easily identified. It all got sorted in the end but caused a load of grief and hassle. Removing plates does not totally prevent id but does help. Modern telemetry logging also leaves a trail.
Still don’t get why the Tesla owner wants to cover his plates when already known info?
I do share photos of cars mainly road only on other make specific forums and may well do here once I have been around a bit and if peeps are interested?
Why are you being so mysterious with your comments?

Why do you want to cover your plates up?

I just don't want every Tom Dick and Harry taking loads of photos with my Private Plates on the car, hence wanting to cover them up :!:

Unlike Opentrack, Javelin, MSVT and Circuit Days who give an indication on how their trackdays are selling on their respective websites =D> , MOT don't give any indication what's so ever :(

So one minute it could be still available and then the very next minute it could be sold out #-o

Please don't be disappointed if you are waiting to leave booking MOT trackdays to the last minute this year :(
