<<<TRACKDAY Snetterton 300 - THURSDAY 28 October £179>>>

Post by casey »

Another date for your trackday diary next year :thumleft:

This event is being run by Nick Dougill and his friendly team at Mazda on Track, who always provide a good, fun, day. Priced at £179, at one of my favourite circuits, due to it's great variety of corners, from a tight hairpin to Coram, a 90mph+ bend that goes on forever :D

This event arose from telephone discussions between myself and Nick Dougill waaay back in February (pre-coronavirus!) in trying to organise a venue for the the 2021 Club Annual Meet. Nick agreed to approach MSV The track operator) and the MX-5 clubs to organise an exclusive "Clubs" event, knowing we, as a club, would be unable to fill/afford to book this circuit on our own. Arising out of that initial discussion was this event which, sadly, as a Club, we could no longer support due to the difficult decision we reached to postpone next year's annual meet.

HOWEVER, the event IS proceeding, as Nick has had a great level of support from the MX-5 clubs. The event is limited to just 80 cars, which is fine for the very long Snetterton circuit, with a trackday car limit of up to 45 cars. Static noise limit is 105dBA. This is NOT an RX-8 OC Events Team supported trackday, but highly recommended to get an early trackday fix, as there are some spaces still available!

Expect a "Club" friendly atmosphere to the day, which is far preferable to a "public" Saturday event where driving standards can be a bit, shall we say, "variable". Many of the cars will be MX-5's, so no need for constantly watching in the mirrors for GT3's approaching in a blink down the two main straights and cutting inside you at the corner...... (I speak from experience here!)

Highly recommended to get an early trackday fix!

Getting events like this as pressies would be much easier if they could be after my birthday!

I'll speak to Sarah.... A month before the wedding will be okay right?

Simples for you compared to me fitting the Pettit supercharger kit with a revised heat exchanger cooling installation, remote oil filter etc; and get it mapped to suit the RRP 11psi pulley set! Not to mention kitchen tiling and oak work surface sealing, walk in cupboard construction and redecorating!
