Attention Boys & Girls


Please follow these instructions to the Letter and then the day will run smoothly =D>

The Advanced Party which consists of Malcolm, Chris, Ian, Marc and Nigel will arrive at the Gates for 7.00am and we will need to set up the Stand before you all arrive, so please don't turn up before 7.50am :!:

However you must all be parked up on the Stand by 9am otherwise risk being sent to the Public Parking Area :!: :!:

Please allow plenty of time getting to the Event :thumleft: as this is a extremely popular show so the queues will be big :(

You will need to print off a Stand Pass (See Attachment) in Colour and unfortunately we only received this notification within the last 48hrs so not been able to send them out with your Ticket's #-o

Upon arrival at the Gate (See Attachment) you will then be directed to the Blue Area and we are on No.38 next door to the Paddock Signing On Office :thumleft:

Once you arrive Nigel will show you where to park so please follow his Instructions and as we will be trying to keep the Track Cars separate from the Show Cars, be prepared to know the answer when asked by Nigel :thumright:

Those of you who are doing the Track Session between 14:00 to 14:15 , we (Events Team) will be handing out Printed Track Passes. (Some of us have Spare Helmets that you may be able to borrow =D> )


MSV Track Instructions (See Attachment)

Please bring DVLA driving licence with you. If you have a crash helmet, please bring this too. Helmets may be hired from the circuit at extra cost. The noise limit for all cars will be 105db which will be measured statically and 92db drive-by on track, as per the MSA 2018 bluebook procedure. Please ensure there are no loose items in your car’s interior compartment or boot. We advise you fit a fire extinguisher and full safety harness. Only one passenger is allowed at any time and must be sat in the front passenger seat. Seat belts and helmets MUST be worn by occupants at all times. Please enter the venue via the Scratchers Lane Paddock Entrance. On arrival, please park in the area indicated and sign on in the paddock office. Signing for drivers and passengers on will take place from 9.00am in the Paddock Office next to the scrutineering bay in the upper paddock. Driver briefings will take place in the Paddock Office approximately 45-minutes before each session. ALL DRIVERS MUST ATTEND. You and your passengers (if applicable) will be given a wristband that must be worn in order to gain access to the circuit. 15-minutes before your session is due to start, please proceed under the tunnel to the Assembly Area at the end of the pit lane, following the red route shown above. Once in the Assembly Area, please await marshals’ instructions. At the end of the session the chequered flag will be shown Please continue around the lap at slow speed and exit the circuit via the pit lane entrance. After leaving the circuit, return to the parking area in the paddock following the red route shown above. Please follow marshals’ instructions at all times and observe the 10mph paddock speed limit.

We will have the usual Catering Facilities under the Club Gazebo being controlled by Caren and Events Team :thumleft: , Bacon Rolls, Hot Drinks, Soft Drinks including Water, Snacks and Sweets =D>

At lunchtime you are welcome to use the Cooking Facilities to knock up Beef Burgers etc...... but a word of warning shows like this aren't cheap when it comes to buying Food and Drink, so strongly advise you bring yourself a Pick Knick for Lunch :thumright:

This is a word of WARNING to everyone who is taking part at this Event or driving the Track Session : If you act like a prat on the Track or around the Stand, then you will more than likely be banned from any future Exclusive Events that the Club has taking place throughout the year :!:

So all that remains to say is have a cracking day with your Car Club Friends =D> =D> =D> =D>

Really pleased for the club for the deserved club stand win, well done to all who organised it.

Many thanks for all you guys who showed me so much consideration out on track, while I tested some latest tweeks on the race car before my next race up at Silverstone

All in all a great day out with great people =D>

Well done to everyone involved. That's a great endorcement of everyone's hard work. We should say a huge thank you to the events team that puts so much into the organisation, much of which happens behind the scenes. I also want to say massive thanks to our members, who turn out such impressively presented cars for every show.

Big thanks to everyone who helped organise this, even without going on track it was a great day out and nice meeting some more members. Well done to all for the Best Club Stand win, hopefully some nice publicity from that as well.

Well done everybody involved in any aspect of the organisation, =D> thanks to Caren and any others involved in cooking the bacon rolls, providing the lovely cakes and to everybody for the good company. It was so hot though ... I had to take my jacket off. :shock:

I'm sure my brother will let me have a selection of his better photos before long so I can post them up here.

Thanks to everyone involved for a great day! Awesome that we picked up Club Stand of the Show, a testiment to all the Event Team's hard work and the great attendance from members as per usual. I think it was Nigel's 'Artistic Parking' that just nicked us the win :thumleft:

Good fun on track too although definitely didn't have the same pace as a few of you guys on Federals etc, confirmation that a set of semis are next up on the to-buy list. Hopefully everyone had a good session, and it was good to see some new faces and get talking to a few more of you, now looking forward to the next one and the OPL in December!

I was very impressed with the Federals and the car seemed to be glued to the track. Almost more satisfying was the way my home built street ported engine performed faultlessly and seems to pulling better than ever.
Next Saturday it's track time at Donington Park.

Well what a fantastic day we all had and then going on to win 1st Prize for Best Club Stand out of 66 Stands :shock:

Sorry if I appear not to be smiling in the group photo :( , but was mainly in a state of shock and amazement that after all the hard work that goes into organising an Event for our Club that we then went on to win this Award =D>

Nigel Ashley from MSV - Time Attack Events Coordinator said to me that we were the best laid out Stand at the Event and that our Exclusive Track Session didn't have any RED FLAG's for the whole Session :thumleft:

Anyway to achieve all this a big thank you goes to the Members who came along to make it all possible =D> =D> =D> =D>

I like to thank the Advance Party for joining me in the Morning to get things set up plus a big thank you goes to Caren for cooking all them Bacon Rolls and making all those Homemade Cakes as it is much appreciated by the Team and Members :thumleft:

Nice to see lots of happy faces during the day plus a few New Members joining all of us :thumleft:

Hopefully we convinced Ollyr3 to join the Club and jondkent to do more Track Days :thumright:

So all that remains to be said many thanks everyone for supporting your Club =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

I can only echo what Nigel has said. Particular thanks to Caren for the bacon roll and delicious lemon drizzle cake - several portions were consumed, despite my best efforts to restrain my calorie intake ;) :D

This was my first outing to this event and I want to thank everyone who turned up and made it such a great day, helped by the fantastic weather. Seeing everyone enjoy themselves makes all the work behind the scenes (mostly Nigel for this one) and for Nigel, me, Ian, Chris and Marc for getting onsite early to setup the stand, worthwhile.

Our track session was fun and I compliment everyone for the track etiquette I witnessed =D> No breakdowns, no offs and no red flags either :D

Here's my track efforts on video. It starts just as the pace car turns off into the pitlane and I try vainly to keep on the tail of Ian.M (nice driving Ian!). I'm still a wimp and braking too much on entry into Paddock Hill and my lines start to get a bit untidy towards the end, but I'm reasonably happy with a 60.7 sec lap that RaceChrono recorded on a clear lap towards the end (probably when I was vainly trying to keep in touch with Scott's Integra ;) ).

It was great to meet a lot of old friends (old in terms of how long I've known you ;) ) and some new people too. As always, these days go so fast so I didn't get a chance to speak to everyone, so apologies to those people I missed.

Good to meet jondkent and Ollyr3 and see them take their first steps on track, I hope you are tempted to do more after your experience on Sunday :D

For those of you who saw smoke emanating from my passenger side front caliper after the track session, it turned out the outer bleed nipple had somehow loosened ever so slightly, allowing a small amount of brake fluid to escape and create a lot of smoke. A very slight nip on the nipple (ooh er!) and the problem was solved. It didn't cause any issue on track, only manifesting itself about 100 metres from our stand on the way back from our session. Really weird, as that bleed nipple hasn't been touched for months and had no problem on a full trackday at Snetterton :?
