Quick question.......

I've got the 4 track sessions booked. It will be my First time.

Is it best to have a full tank of fuel or would half be enough?

If it is dry [-o< then you will want a fairly full tank of fuel for 4 sessions.

Fuel wise you'll be fine if it's wet! lol. I got all the way through the Silverstone track day last year on a single tank (I usually use 2 tanks on a track day) - although that was partially to spending most of my time in the pits due to red flags... :lol:

Mine is being cleaned by the local bods as we speak! :D

Will most likely have to clean my own zorst pipes as they don't normally... The advantage of the cobra system, though. Can take them off when the car has cooled down, clean them, polish them up and fit them first thing in the morning! :D

Regular is 112.9 so id imagine its 118.9/L for "Premium"

117.9 for super from sainsbury's, it's open 0500 - 2300 monday through sunday

But if he's over 16 and pays £5 for a passenger band he can go round the track :)
I guess he is so not too much beer the night before ;)

I will warn everyone, I'm just here for the track sessions and looking at nice cars. I don't mind leaving mine in a shed somewhere or under a camouflage netting.
