OK boys & girls have arranged a Club Activity Day through Carlimits for all of us to enjoy on Tuesday 11th August 2020 :thumright:

This is known as a 20 Car Day


The Cost will be £56 payable to my PayPal Account {n.p.t.communications@btinternet.com} to secure your place :thumleft:

Please NOTE I Reserve the right to withhold the Payment if you can't attend after you have paid me :!:

Below is some useful information from Carlimits about timings and directions etc.........

GreySilver Beast - Test Drives Unlimited

North Weald Activity Day
Merlin Way
North Weald
Essex


If using Sat Nav, we haven't supplied the postcode as it takes you to the wrong place! Please get off M11 at Junction 7 and just follow the signs to 'North Weald Market'.

DIRECTIONS
North Weald Airfield is off Junction 7 on the M11. Follow the signs for North Weald Market and this will take you straight to the airfield. There will be only 1 gate open on the day, next to the Air Traffic Control Tower. The person on the gate will direct you to where you will need to be.

You will need to bring your driving license with you on the day. There are food facilities located on the airfield. The day will begin at 9.00am and finish at approximately 4.00pm. Spectators are allowed onto the airfield but there are no facilities for them to sit and watch.

Please note that as your vehicle will be cornering at speed, you may need to inflate your tyres more than you would normally. Vehicles such as the Lotus Elise, Caterham etc are usually ok as they are lightweight and designed for high speed cornering, but cars such as Subaru Imprezas, Porsches, Mazdas, TVRs etc are recommended to inflate their tyres to the maximum stated on the tyre itself to protect the side wall of the tyre. There is a garage just off the M11 roundabout (on the A414 towards Harlow) where you can do this before the event. We usually have a tyre pressure gauge so that you can decrease the tyres before your journey home :!:

LEARNING THE CIRCUIT
The circuit we will use is shown in our Carlimits game – why not have a play to help you learn where you need to go on the day. Don’t worry, they’ve used a bit of ‘artistic license’ we don’t really have helicopters and people to mow down on the circuit!


http://www.carlimits.com/game/

ITINERARY
Meet on the airfield.
07.00am - Food available in Billy's Red Bus Cafe.
08.00am - 08.30am and Pump up your Tyres.
08.30am - Will be a briefing by the instructor.
9.00am - 12.30pm - Start
12.30pm to 1.30pm - Lunch
1.30pm to 4pm - Finish


A large group day with the following activities;
High speed bend.
Small circuit.
Medium Circuit
Sprint Circuit included weather/time permitting


Lunch Address:
Billy's Red Bus Cafe : (used to run the Squadron Cafe)
Merlin Way
North Weald
Essex


Just to add for those who haven't been before,we do stop for lunch (not included in the price).
Also you will be throwing your car about so loose objects are best removed. They normally let you store some of the stuff in there Reception Room on Site.
You may wear your tyres a lot,depending on how you drive,so make sure you have enough tread to get home.There is plenty of advice available from those who have been before so please don't be afraid to ask.
A must for the hi-speed bend and (ideally) for the other circuits,you need to run your tyres at much higher pressure than normal ~40psi for a RX-8 & this is because there's no chance for them to warm-up to normal operating temperatures plus the cornering forces round the hi-speed bend would be sufficient to pull a normally inflated cold tyre off the rim.
Anyway your first task when you arrive will be to get the inflater out and start pumping :P
