JDM Castle Combe 2017 - PASSENGER OFFERS/REQUESTS

Post by casey » Fri Jun 02, 2017 1:08 pm

The Events Team have started this thread to keep the main JDM Combe trackday thread as clear as possible for more general questions :D

If you can OFFER a passenger ride then please post in this thread which session(s) and whether you are looking for an experienced driver to help you, or whether your are an experienced driver and can offer some tips to others.

If you would like to REQUEST a passenger ride (or are an experienced on track and can offer help from the passenger seat) then please post up stating which sessions and whether you'd simply like a ride or can offer advice.

Hopefully we can use this thread to do some match-making :inlove: :lol:

Please remember that Motorsport is inherently dangerous and, although the risks are low, you passenger with someone at your own risk.

If you have already arranged for a driver/passenger pairing and it's not listed on the Trackday Session thread (LINK HERE), then please post up below and we'll keep things updated. I know some Members have already made arrangements on the main JDM thread, but we don't have time to trawl through 26 pages to find them all :D

It is inherently more dangerous with some drivers than others ;)

I am out with DrewPZ in session 1
I can do a couple of others probably, from first timers on track to full race tuition (send me a pm first please)
I also have medium open face helmet spare

:D :D Updated the passenger list and helmet list Pete.

Found these bits in the main thread, not sure if sorted?
  • Highland R3 looking for experienced driver in session 3 - sorted, passenger with Ian.M
    Lemon looking to passenger with an experienced driver in session 1 - sorted, passenger with Ian.M
    Ian.Mothersole (experienced) offering passenger seat in sessions 2 & 4 (if not already booked)
    Chris Holmes (experienced) offering passenger seat in sessions 3 (if not already booked)
    Dan.NJ72 (experienced) offering passenger seat available in sessions 4
For the above, probably best anyone that can help sends a PM to the individual first, then post up here once agreement reached :thumleft:

Out of ten, how quick will she want to go? :lol:

I've put you down to passenger with Ian.Mothersole as he's offered a place in all sessions. I'm sure Ian will be OK with that :thumleft:

That's a good choice to passenger with

I recommend people who are new to track driving use an open face helmet as the visibility, hearing, weight etc is far better.

would anyone experienced enjoy a boring trip around in session 1 showing me the ropes? Alternately would anyone not experienced like a terrifying ride around session 1 as I attempt to keep up?

I'd like a ride for session 1 in exchange for session 2 or 4.

Fast/experienced driver a preference, but not a requirement.

Would rather have someone who would like to go out with me in session 2 to pick up on my mistakes.

Good listener.

Sorry if I've missed this. Is there any charge for passengers? My +1 is keen on coming out on track with me for both sessions.

May have a spare seat in session 3 if 1 session is enough for him though..!

You buy passenger passes (armband) for cash on the day £5 I think it is.
Available from the office (Strawford centre )
This enables the person to passenger all day

I'll put Wagner down as a passenger with Dave in Session 1, swapping over in session 2. If you want me to change that, let me know :thumleft:
