***TRACKDAY Blyton Park - Saturday 17th October SOLD OUT***

Post by GreySilver Beast » Sun Jun 28, 2020 6:08 pm

BLYTON PARK (Lincs), Saturday 17th October.

This is with Mazda On Track; Price £139 Inner & Outter Circuits, one will be AM and then one will be PM Image

GSB-TDU will be doing this Track Day and others are welcome to join me.

This is an equally brilliant event for anyone who is experienced on track or has never been on a track before. You really cannot (safely) explore the superb handling of the RX-8 to its limits on public roads.

The Blyton Park circuit is not a race track. It was specifically designed and laid out as a test and trackday venue. This means it doesn’t have lots of intimidating “Armco” and tyre walls around the circuit. It has an excellent smooth tarmac surface and, should you try a little too hard there is concrete run-offs on most of the circuit. At other areas you worst you are likely to do is to run off into a field of cabbages. However, this is HIGHLY unlikely to happen unless you make a HUGE error, as the RX-8 is so forgiving and the DSC so good.

With acknowledgement to other RX8OC members, here’s a couple of videos of what it’s like to drive at Blyton



Don’t worry about massive tyre wear during the day. As long as you’ve got 3mm+ of tread at the start of the day and your tyre pressures are correct, you are good to go.

Blyton Park is situated 1 mile from Blyton village on the B1205. Here's a LINK to the Blyton Park website where you can get more details.

Address
Blyton park
Old blyton airfield
Kirton road

Got this booked in! 👍

This will likely be my 1st ever track day (have booked a 20 min tuition session) so would be delighted for any help in the day.

Booked this.
2nd test session for the mx5 with all the additions to see how the extra weight, wider tyres, and the Clubrace coilovers affect the handling.

Guys,

I have cancelled this and taken a track credit as I intend to book another one.
I have found I am on flying duty that week so will not be able to attend.
These track days are filling up fast in the UK, might have to try Europe to finish off setting up the MX5.

Unfortunately I'm now out on this, along with the other track days. Hope you have a good time Nigel.

Shout out to Nick from MOT also for being kind enough to do a refund so close to the day.

***TRACKDAY Blyton Park - Saturday 17th October SOLD OUT***

Post by GreySilver Beast » Sun Oct 18, 2020 3:16 pm

What a fabulous day I had at Blyton Park with Mazda On Track =D> =D> =D> =D>

Had plenty of track time throughout the day and only saw one Red Flag when I was on the track :shock:

Speaking of which drove a total 90 miles on the track and used just over a half of a tank of 97 Ron fuel on Map2 (225bhp) :thumleft:

Called it a day at 3:40pm, was starting to flag and taking too many chances around the track :(

So have driven Blyton Park 7.5 times on a Trackday and 0.5 Sprint Day in total now and still one of the best tracks within the UK =D> =D> =D> =D>

Glad you enjoyed it Nigel.
It's always good to know when to quit🤕
Something I learned at oulton park many years ago when I ran out of talent on the last session of the day...!

Yes managed to get all four wheels onto the yellow part of the track on one of the corners, which is when I knew that I would crash if I carried on #-o

So took the car round one more time to do a cool down lap, then came into the pits :!:
