***TRACKDAY Oulton Park - Friday 13th November £145***

Post by GreySilver Beast » Thu Dec 26, 2019 12:39 am

I've driven this awesome track 2 times now =D>

This Open Pit Lane event will be managed via Mazdaontrack, who will be in attendance on the day. It is restricted to 72 cars, so there should be very little queuing to get onto this long circuit.

Are you a newcomer to trackdays? As on all trackdays, they are well managed and marshalled. There will be a comprehensive, compulsory, safety briefing at the start of the day for all drivers, followed by some slow “sighting laps” behind a lead car. There will be plenty of experienced trackheads present who will be only too happy give assistance to any novices.

Here's an old video clip taken in 2010 with a keyfob camera, mounted low on the nearside, just in front of the foglight..... keep an eye out for the spinning Peugeot ;)

The sound is a bit LOUD, so turn it down a bit!



Provisional timings for the day are:
Sign On 7:30 till 08:30
Safety Briefing 08:30
Sighting Laps at 09:00
Lunch break 12:00 – 13:00

Screw it, need something else to look forward to and Oulton is still one that I've never been to. Booked at early bird price along with the premier inn for the night before.

I will ask NickD to put the 3 Garage Bookings together, but will be up to you to ask Marc and Ranjan nicely if you can put your stuff in their garages and if there is any further charge :roll:

Please note that Adam and Nick are already sharing with Nigel and paying for the privilege =D>

I have just booked this with a garage and also booked the Premier Inn for the Thursday night.
Folks are welcome to stow gear in the garage but I am not sure about second cars due to social distancing rules, if we still have them of course!

It depends how much you like paying for a trackday Tom :rolleyes:
