Novice Only Bank Holiday Track Day 13/04/2020

Post by jackrhysgreenwood » Fri Jan 24, 2020 7:55 pm

Hi All,

I and a couple of mates will be going to a novice only track day to make a start on learning how to race properly before hopefully heading over to the Nurburgring later in the summer!
Price is £149 with an additional driver price of £15.

It is hosted at Cadwell park.

The day will include:

Brake boards and cones around the circuit to help you master the track
Limited number of cars on circuit.
Turn-in and apex cones to help you learn corner lines
Experienced instructors on hand throughout the event, offering advice and in-car tuition.

Hope to see you there!

Might have to buy some jetex decibel reducers for mine though, fairly certain that my toyosport decat and backbox will be a tad over the noise limits.

Just an opinion on this - I attended a novice only day at Cadwell back in 2016 and it was phenomenal. The brake boards etc. really help you get your eye in initially and knowing that everyone else is in the same boat as you helps.

The only thing I would point out is that it's not only novices that join such days, though... I had 2 idiots in M3s running semi slick tyres who were motoring around everyone and had clearly been doing it before...

Proud to say I kept them 'honest' so to speak ;)

My experience of these "novice" days is the same. It's a cheap "practice/shakedown" day for race cars at the start of the race season, so not unusual to see a few out on track on these days. Just be aware this might be the case. Hopefully, the track operator will ensure they play nicely!
