***TRACKDAY Snetterton - Wednesday 17th June SOLD OUT***

Post by New Duke » Tue May 19, 2020 9:33 pm

I've booked this with MSVT. I think bigpete is booked too. In case anyone else wants to join, at the time of posting this there are still garages available.

https://www.msvtrackdays.com/car/calend ... une/17-sn/

There are new guidelines (attached to this post) regarding social distancing to be aware of. One being that garages can no longer be shared and only two people in a garage at any time. Takeaway food is available from the cafe, but no more helmet hire. So it's worth reading the guidelines before booking. You can gather in a group outside of garages and shout at each other from a distance though.

Hopefully some of you will want to blow out those lockdown cobwebs. :race:

EDIT: I should add that it looks like MSV have suspended all discount codes. I couldn't get the ones I have to work anyway.

NAMES LIST
  1. New Duke (Haydn)(R3) - PAID inc Garage
  2. Nickp47 (Nick)(R3) - PAID
  3. GreySilver Beast (Nigel)(GT86) - FREE inc Garage
  4. bigpete (Pete)(RX-8) - PAID

Booked this with garage while doing my pre-flight checks; who says men can't multitask [-X
Be home in about 19 hours.

Wonderful! Good on you both.

I booked a garage as well. Nearer the time I'll email MSV to ask that any garages we collectively have are near each other.

Thanks Nigel. Yeah there's huge demand right now, every Javelin event until the 17th is already sold out. Every TDO seems to be selling tickets very fast.

MSVT were informed this Morning by Ranjan that I will be taking his place on the 17th June :thumleft:

This will be the 17th time driving Snetterton 300 (3MPS MKII x2),(RX-8 R3 x1),(GT86 APS x13) since 2011 :shock:

Once again thank you Ranjan for his generosity :inlove: =D>

Have a good day guys :thumleft:

Looks like a warm day for you, 20-21ish with a light breeze. Dry in the morning with possible light showers in the afternoon. However, we've had showers forecast for here today, but they didn't happen and it has been a glorious day 8)

Good to see you guys yesterday. We were lucky with the good weather.

I was annoyed that the majority of cars there were race teams pushing way too hard, being dangerous a lot, and causing almost of the constant red flags in the morning. Seems to happen more and more and defeats the point of a public track day. And that Radical that dumped oil the entire length of the track and lost us an hour of track time... :x [-X . Was a shame as well that we weren't allowed to share garages or park behind each others... especially when elsewhere it looked like a free for all. For a portion of the morning three guys from a race team treated my garage like their club room. Until they backed off when I tried to run one of them over after a polite word hadn't worked.

Towards the end of the afternoon I had the track to myself and it was glorious. Completely empty track to myself for ages and finally got a lot of fast clear laps in. Holding 4th on the back straight right up to 10k rpm each lap made the engine run very hot. But it was so worth it.

Thanks to bigpete for taking off my air con belt in the morning. Very kind of him. Looks like that's been the cause of my engine bay noise. Maybe the bearing in the pulley has failed... will see.
