Malcolm and I are planning on booking dinner at either the Stag or Angel Pubs after the trackday, for 5:30pm =D>

This breaks your journey from going straight home and also means you can relax for a while and unwind, before the long drive back down South :thumright:

So who's interested then :?:

Please post up so as we can add you to the list and then we can book with numbers =D>

I don't suppose there is anyone on this track day with a relatively stock S1 car (non PZ edition)?

Scott and I are planning some videos back up by lap times on improving the Rx8 handling.

Interesting. Needs to be the same driver in each car for a meaningful comparison if you're recording lap times.

Also I imagine there will be multiple variables between cars, which makes it harder to quantify the effect of an individual part.

Will be interested to see the results, although I expect it could result in some healthy debate depending on the specs of the cars compared and the methodology used.

Emailed Chris today to find out how many places are left and the prediction is this will sell out within the next two weeks, so if you are still thinking about it, then strongly advise booking a place as soon as possible =D>

Would there be any objections if I share this on my business page to see if we can get a few more Rx8's on the day?

The trackday code I have is open to non members and given to me in good faith from Circuit Days to sell as many places as is possible, plus it becomes more exclusive to drivers who know each other on the whole within the trackday world :thumleft:

There will be about 50 cars there approx and so far we have taken 19 of the places =D>

If you're still thinking about it, I urge you to book as soon as possible :thumleft:

Just booked this but may be in the M3 given the circuit and that on the two preceding weekends the R3 is currently doing the Two Ball Lakes Rally then the Prescott Hill Climb. Something every weekend in September plus probably attending the Surrey meet too!!!
