Drivelimits has replace Carlimits which is now owned and run by Mark Robins =D> =D> =D> =D>

Facebook details are Here

Website details are Here

The cost will be £1,600 ÷ by 20 cars = £80 per car/person and payment would be set up on DriveLimits Website =D>

This saves me the hassle of collecting money from all of you, as we know it's like getting blood out of a stone :lol:

So have asked for either Monday 7th or 21st February 2022 as you will most definitely learn something in cold and wet environment :thumleft:

If we get over subscribed, then can organise another day :thumright:

So those of you who are on the list, can you please confirm you would still want to do this despite it being more money, than in the past under the old Carlimits banner :?:

Never done one before but am interested.

Anyone got any overview of what they actually do? Carlimits old website is vague and the new website still doesn't say🤷‍♂️

The group days were less focused than the 4car days when carlimits ran them.

I remember doing the high speed turn where the aim is to prevent a Spin and complete the turn at the highest speed before crossing the imaginary wall line. This is done without TC on and often involves spinning.

We also done a timed circuit.

It's a great day and fun and I have probably forgotten a few bits that are done during the day.

The format may have changed

For anyone who is curious about what activities were done on the former Car Limits Activity days, here's my videos from the 2017 day. Forgive the giggling after I just about saved a 4 wheel drift on the short sprint course...



I also went back the following year and did a dedicated 4 man day, which was very worthwhile:
