What is holding you back from taking your car on track?

Post by Bulldog » Tue Oct 16, 2012 11:37 pm

In standard form the 8 is a fantastic track day car.

I am wondering why more OC members dont take the plunge and see what their cars can really do on the track. So if you've not been on track before can you say why?

I'll add to this :)

I have wanted to do a track day for years but never really had the sort of car. I even came close to doing one in my old Omega, sure I would have had some funny looks but that thing could shift and was hilarious in the bends. When that had to go I was just looking for a cheap runaround until I completed my house, but on discovering the used prices I had to get the Rex. Then, seeing how much some of you do this and how many events there are to choose from I have been chomping at the bit.

I almost did this year but the main reason I avoided it is the brand new ditch finders it came fitted with. Connan Pete did tell me not to worry about them and drive to accomodate them, but honestly these autogrips don't grip, they would have been shredded in a few laps. (And this is my daily car)

Instead I have pottered around on them using money to change all the other bits that needed doing, and now junked them for some winter tyres until next season. I will then be getting some tasty UHP mumbers and joining you!

I will do a track day again (the last one was with Nissan in 1997 :shock: ) but time is problem for me as I have a large young family and a business to run. I will make it a priority next year :D

Money. The cost of the day, the fear that I'll need new tyres/pads/etc after a day of razzing it about. It seems like a very expensive day and so it's kept me from it as I'm not exactly minted.

That's probably true for many of us. Second set of wheels and tyres, almost certainy a pad upgrade and possibly a change after the event. Travel, accommodation, track fees etc and not forgetting insurance. It all adds up.

I'd like to do some track days at some point but I'll have to wait until there's some cash to burn :)

Only just got mine, and am on the verge of a track day. Have wanted to do one for (20 :oops:) years, but would have need the car in as well.

Now I have the Rex, definitely something I will do, but the nearest to Bournemouth is over 2 hours away I think! I would definitely like some on-road tuition and track tuition (not that I need it :roll: ).

I 100% echo what Will said about taking a standard car. I did this for my first few trackdays and had enormous fun in a standard car. Because I got the trackday bug I then started to mod the car to optimise it for track driving, without undue compromise for road use.

If you are lucky enough to have a track within "day travel" from your home then you can save on fuel and overnight costs. Don't worry about tyre wear, it's unlikely to be significant (unless you try drifting every corner, in which case you'd be black flagged anyway :D ). A spare set of front pads, just in case, and some oil (half a litre or so) is all you'll need. Rear brake pad wear is minimal on a standard setup. If you come along to one of the days where a bunch of us turn up then we've pretty much have several sets of tools on hand as well.

So, if you are close to a track, with some trackdays at around £100, all you have to add is fuel for the day, a spare set of front pads, helmet hire at £10 (if you don't have one), and some oil. Bring some sandwiches and drinks and you can save on buying food at the track too. Insurance is optional, but could cost you £75+, depending on the value of your car.

The best trackday for anyone to start with, and on a budget, is the AGM Blyton trackday next year, assuming you are within reasonable distance from the track. Even if you have to stay overnight, you don't have to stay at the AGM hotel or stay for the AGM, you can still get a cheap Travelodge or cheap B&B in the area. As it's a club exclusive day at a track where there is very little to hit, insurance is something you could forego (at your own risk of course).

Hi Danny, I reckon Brands Hatch and Castle Combe are the closest to you, both ~2-2.5hrs hours I guess? Thruxton would be closer, but they don't seem to offer many trackdays. My first couple of trackdays in my standard car were at Brands Hatch. It's quite a short circuit and easy to learn, but also has a wide variety of corners and gradients. It's not a bad track for a first outing, given that Blyton is quite a trek for you.

If you tag along to a trackday where there is at least one of the "regulars" then we are only too willing to offer advice to get you started. We operated a "buddy" system at Cadwell Park last month for the first time which seemed to work well. Basically, 4 experienced trackies paired up with people who were new (or relatively new) to trackdays and the "buddies" stayed together as much as was needed for the first part of the day, taking passenger rides to show lines, etc, until the "newbie" felt they were OK to go solo. It turned out we had some very capable trackday drivers who were soon buzzing around very confidently!

It's generally a bit quieter over the winter, however there are a few trackdays and they're generally cheaper, they're often wet though.

Agree with Phil. I have no problem with spare pads or anything like that for the day, and would love to do a track day, I've done a few driving experience type things in the past and they've been awesome.

I'll look at this more after Christmas I think, as the first quarter of the year things tend to die down a bit in work too. Phil mate if you want to look at doing this as well perhaps we can look at one at the same time, it'd be good fun I think.

Not much usually takes place over the period Jan/February, but then the "season" starts again on March 16th with the Club AGM and trackday weekend - a trackday at Blyton on the Saturday and club AGM on the Sunday. You don't have to attend the AGM, but if you do you will get a subsidy towards the costs. It was a cracking weekend last year!

AGM+Blyton Trackday link

After that, we have, for the last two years, done multiple track sessions at Japfest, Castle Combe in May. We'll probably do the same again next year. We easily filled 4 sessions of 20 cars each last year.

I have, for the past few years, picked ~4 trackdays and invited people to join me. I've tried to spread them throughout the year and also through the country (with apologies to those in the very far North and Scotland as Croft is pretty much the limit for me to travel).

In fact, I've just posted up this thread to gauge views on tracks for next year;

Trackdays 2013 - your input

These events have generally attracted between 10 and 20 cars, so there's been an excellent social side to the days as well.

I'm also VERY pleased to see other people posting up trackday dates they are attending and inviting others to join them. If we get people doing that we can build a very lively calendar of trackday events. Personally, I'd really encourage anyone who is close to UK tracks to "adopt" their local track and post up an event they plan to attend and inviting others to join in. The price and availability of our cars is now at a level where we seem to be naturally finding a growing number of people who would like to do a trackday. I'd certainly think it's something that every owner should do at least once whilst they have ownership of an RX-8 :D

Bob, no excuse if you are close to such a fabulous track :D . You won't be crap, the car is so forgiving on track that if you enjoy driving on fast B roads, you'll have a lot of fun on track too. Helmet, no problem to hire on on the day for a tenner.

Thanks casey,

Yes, that's what I reckoned too. I'm sure I read about on-road tuition too?

Danny.
There's no road based tuition on these days, but I, and others, are very happy to take anyone out on track to show them the standard cornering lines, braking points, etc (**), then sit in as a passenger to give some advise to the driver. I'd then strongly advise taking a professional tuition session, generally around £25 for 20 minutes, and well worth it.

** most tracks have cones positoned to show "turn-in" points and apexes to aim for on each corner. Some may also put out additional cones for braking points and corner exits. VERY rarely, no cones are present at all. Also, by lunchtime, a few apex cones may well have been knocked out of position, or run over, so they are not to be relied upon :lol:
