I only done it for a giggle
Don’t forget , us in our county have officially been on lock since start of September.
I was lucky enough to have mid glam on my driving license not caerphilly so sneaked 3 in .
Just to add
Anglesey isn’t exactly local
It’s a longer drive for us than oulton park

It’s also a great driving road I think, unless you are in a van towing a trailer with an RX8 on it, shame!

Or wading through impromptu rivers... Really hoping we can do a trip to Robs in good weather to enjoy those roads next year.

I’m not sure
But you could pay a tenner and say your a passenger
If your Covid clean
Could have a passenger ride with a mask on anytime

Assuming that we aren't locked down in December [-o< , then I urge you to book trackdays in December as they will sell out soon :( , because anyone who had a booking in November will possibly swap their Credit to December instead :!:

Please note some of your Club Members are attending the following trackdays :
  • Cadwell Park 12th Dec
  • Donington Park GP 18th Dec
  • Mallory Park 29th Dec
Also hoping the Mazda On Track Day goes ahead on 4th December [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o<

Following the cancellation of Silverstone GP on 27th Nov, I had an email today from Javelin advising a date has been set up 8th December so have booked it using the credit.

Can understand that, tbh I am mainly keen to do Silverstone so I can drive the circuit (being a F1 fan) at a sensible price (£199).

Further 2020 disappointment, Silverstone have cancelled the 8th December :( Not due to Covid but because they don't want to overlap with their Lapland event apparently.

What a pain! I'm currently enjoying the week off unable to do anything and just keep thinking about Oulton! Hey ho I went for a little drive up and down the estate in it and did some pops and bangs to ensure any neighbours working from home are still awake. Roll on whenever this finishes.

Sounds like a good reason to come to Donnington! Not much difference to Mallory.
