Update for 2016

Everyone who came on the last one has now asked me if they can do it again (next week)!!!!!
I'm happy to arrange another one for club members with the rest of the team GSB (Nigel) and Casey (Malcolm)
I can only give an update at the moment.
I am in discussions with Circuit Days and we are trying to get a closed track day at the Nurburgring Ring to coincide with a day at Spa Francorchamps :thumright: :thumright:
Were still waiting for dates and I will update when I can.
Regards
Pete

Spa & Nurburgring would be killer. Double bucket list. :twisted:

I'd be tempted, but if the house purchase we're looking to make goes through then next year is going to be a lean one for track days. We're already planning the AGM, and we'll likely only get one other. Spa was amazing, and I'm really keen to do the 'Ring on a closed day, but the numbers need to add up. It would likely only be the Nurburgring if we did this trip, funding constraints to blame.

Tentatively interested :)

I'm potentially up for this but I need to clear it with the boss as she told me I wasn't to take the RX8 to Europe again after the complete engine failure at the nurburgring earlier this year, haha

I nearly wet myself with excitement when I read Nigel`s pm. I'd already looked at booking the javelin days at spa in 2016. I'll hold fire now.

I'm so in btw.

Do what we did and make a proper holiday out of it - that way you'll both enjoy yourselves and it won't seem quite so one-sided. I guarantee a few nights in Bruges would go down well :thumleft:

Count me in!

Most suitable time for me would be from April to the end of May as I'll have my other car on the road by then.
The dates that Javelin have up fit in perfect actually and £255 with the club discount!

Braking on track should be like doing a really nice poo...tapered ends and fat in the middle.
