To verify that, a Brands Hatch trackday in December a few years ago was called off due to a foot of snow on the track :shock:

The TDO, Mazda on Track, offered a full refund or a place on a rescheduled day on the following 31 January.

The only risk is a trackday might commence and run OK for maybe an hour, then be called off due to adverse weather making it unsafe. In those circumstances it's likely there will be no refund.

Good grief, you are correct Nigel, it was 2010. I'd no idea it was that long ago!

Nigel & Malcolm,

What are the chances that this will go ahead?
Just heard that the UK is under quarantine for 4 weeks starting Thursday.
It means I will not be back in time to take part if it goes ahead unless I get back by next Thursday.
Could someone please find out and get some information, it would be much appreciated.

Ranjan.

Keen to know too (in due course of course), was/am really looking forward to this one after such a strange year. I had Silverstone booked for 27th November so will wave goodbye to that, fingers firmly crossed for this to go ahead.

I think we will know more once we have heard from NickD regarding Oulton Park this coming week :thumleft:

Ranjan, as Ray was sharing with you on the day, have you got a car he can borrow for this trackday, encase you can't make it back in time :?:

Just a thought :-k

The mx5 is being transported down by trailer by my guys whether I make it or not for Ray to use as I did not want to let him down for the 5th year in row :oops:
So all good.

But it looks like I might have to return on Wednesday anyway :x ](*,)

Could the club ask MOT the chances of this running on the 4/12? This will most likely be my last trackday before I scrap the Rx8 for something else, really want to do Brands in rex.

Ramesh if Lockdown does finish on the 2nd [-o< , then this trackday will still go ahead =D> , but at the moment it's too early to ask MOT what the future plans are :(

On Facebook nick stated at the moment this event is still scheduled to go ahead as the venue hasn't cancelled it. But as mentioned, if the lockdown gets extended past 2nd December it will no likely be cancelled.

We will work on the assumption it's still running, until notified otherwise.

If the lockdown ends on 2nd Dec and we return to pre-lockdown conditions, then I see no reason why it shouldn't go ahead. But no-one can know what restrictions may be in place on 4th Dec at this stage.

Steve, the night before, Thursday 3rd Dec ought to be OK for staying at the Premier Inn.

Premier Inn website:
"England – Following Government restrictions, from Thursday, 5th November until Wednesday, 2nd December, overnight stays for holidays in England will not be allowed. During this period however individuals will still be allowed to stay away from home for work purposes, education or other legally permitted reasons."

Raanjan please do not go to any trouble on my account I would just be happy to be present at Brands as I have not missed since our first time there. Never having driven an MX5 before and as yours is a little more powerful I would hate to drop it in the kitty litter on exiting the pits #-o . With your guidance as to the handling ability and with you sitting in either the drivers, or passenger seat, I might have a better idea of the cars habits prior to giving it some welly [-o< , but otherwise with my heavy right foot I am at risk of spinning out, as per my drive in your TVR at Snetterton. :oops: :lol:

Ray,
As an ex-racer, with loads of experience and talent, you will have no problem taming a pesky little mx5.
Remember that Caterham clone we took down all years back, I spun that twice on one lap while you had no problems as I remember correctly; that was a cold, slippery day.
Anyway, looks like I will be there so no excuses dear boy [-X :thumright:
