I just wanted to add a general point that all trackdays this summer are selling out rapidly at the moment. So if there's one that you're thinking about attending, think fast, or you'll miss your chance!

Click on Castle Combe for the Track Website :thumleft:

NOTE the 6th June was supposed to be for JDM 2020 Car Show that has been cancelled for this year :(

They still have £19.50 of our money for this cancelled event and seeing the day is now being used for a trackday, it would be nice to all have a Full Refund for JDM :!: :!:

I read something like that this morning with circuit days but thought they were swapped from October to the September days
Or is this a different TDO ?

I have been advised by a third party, not a circuit official, the The Castle Combe track day on Monday Will only allow shared cars for people from the same household ( not just same family) mechanics are allowed in the paddock only, but not on the pit wall or in spectator areas. All Entrants will be required to provide proof of their ID at the gate. No helmet hire or instruction.

I stress this is third party information which I have yet to corroborate for the track day on 6th June which several of us are attending.

Thanks Chris. Sounds similar to the new MSV rules at all of their tracks. Am attaching them below in case people missed these in the Snetterton thread.

Prepare for retailers to start running out of the cheaper helmets.
