My first and only track day so far was in the wet, and I found it very reassuring to feel how the car handled at the extremes, which in the wet are very much less extreme than in the dry. You'll have a blast.

I agree, I think one of the most fun track days I've been on was in the wet. Leave DSC on and you'll be fine, and you'll get to experience how awesome the RX-8 DSC is ;)

Also, less tyre wear, which IMO is a massive bonus (and less brake wear too I guess?)

Although if you find yourself slow and in space on the wet track... DSC off can be fun, too... ;-)

A reminder for those going out on track that you can collect your "Track Packs" from 8am in the Club Marquee.

The packs will contain:
- Your Track Pass(es)
- Your Track "hangers" (one per session on track, collected by the marshals each time
- A Track Briefing.

It would be good if you bring a pen with you to complete the Track Pass (a fascimile of which is in the briefing pack - see below).

A limited supply of "Novice X" stickers for your rear window will be available for collection at the same time. If you are new to trackdays and/or Combe, then you are advised to take one to alert faster drivers approaching from the rear to give you more room.

The track briefing is available to download to read in advance here:
Castle Combe Track Brief Final.pdf
(1.78 MiB) Downloaded 23 times
Remember that non-compliance with noise regs, clothing requirements, etc, means you will not be allowed on track.
You MUST have your driving license with you in case it needs to be checked


The weather forecast is changing by the hour :? For those who have access to semi-slick tyres it'll be a difficult decision. Well worn semi-slicks and a wet track are not a good combination, unless you like sliding about a lot ;)

Still got to get the Cool Box in the car on Friday Night or early hours of Saturday Morning plus a few more drinks that are being delivered Friday Afternoon :P

Boot is almost full as well :shock:

Some items will go in the Passenger Footwell but seeing I need to get the car cleaned Friday Morning they are currently behind the Passenger Seat as the Cool Box will eventually go there :lol:

It is truly amazing what can fit in the GT86 :shock:

for those who will be needing fuel, there is a BP garage as you aproach chippenham (after leaving the M4 head south down the A350 through 2 sets of lights and at the first roundabout take the 3rd exit) current pricing for unleaded is 115p a litre (so 125p for ultimate) otherwise there is a sainsbury's on the south side of town where their super is a good deal cheaper (not been there this week though so not sure on pricing but usually around a 7p a litre saving over BP)
Thanks, Stu
