I've just paid.

Should we book a table at the Black Horse after the event for something to eat?

Titanium Grey, bling wheels (set number 6) Now gone but will never be forgotten, sat nav, I-mob tracking, SS Strakes, full set of RB grills, K&N Filter and Borla zorst. Now lowered.

Just ask me where anything is, it will be in the boot!!

What time does it start and finish? I just moved to the UK from Australia, I brought my Rotary car but it’s very very loud. Do they have any issues with sound at the track? It’s a N/A non turbo car but has a little over 400 bhp at the wheels as it’s a 13bpp periferal port. Hopefully it will be ok, if so I’ll book my ticket. Oh does it matter that I don’t have an RX8? It’s a 1974 RX4 coupe, I was hoping to come with the RX8 guys as they don’t have an old school Mazda club here, am I able to attend?
Hi Rotadave,

Blyton technically has a noise limit of 95dB drive-by but they are very relaxed about it. We had a FD RX-7 owner at Blyton this past weekend that tests at 103 dB static and he was fine. Last year we had a Lotus Exige Cup 430 which tests at 111dB and you can hear it from miles away. He was also fine. I would suspect you will be fine and if you aren't there is only one microphone on the circuit and you can lightly lift when you go by it.

I hope you can fill all the places Roy. After the effort you've taken to organise it, I hope it will be supported, and maybe run again next year.

Just a shame you picked a date I can't make this year :(

It would be great to have variety like that in addition to this mysterious RX-4 owner Rotadave that doesn't appear to be on here anymore.

For those still looking for a room I have booked at the Beckett Arms where there are a couple rooms still available. It's also a gastropub like the Black Horse Inn and is a halfway house between the one BP station that sells 97 in the area and Blyton Park.

I have just PMd and emailed Rotadave but he isn't a member yet so may have decided not to join the club, not that its necessary to do so to attend this day.

Is that all? Come on guys.

We had 63 cars on track at little old Kirkistown last year, of which 58 were rotarys, plus a few more just there for the craic.

I'd say definitely. It's a relatively easy track and you'll be in the company of experienced 'battle hardened' fellow owners.

Blyton Park is "novice friendly" as it's mainly used as a test track and not for competitive racing.

This means that there's lots of run-off in most places and very little armco or anything else to hit, as they don't have to protect any spectator areas.

Spin out far enough and you could end up in a field of turnips.

The track surface is also fairly new and consistent, and there's very little change in camber, and no elevation changes, all of which means that the car behaves is a predictable way.

Of course. Good idea. I thought I did it back then but to be fair that forum is so dead I probably forgot to login to the site. However, if anyone on there is keen we might as well try as I have publicised this track day everywhere else, i.e. UK RX-7 and RX-8 clubs plus Facebook.

Deadline to book and ensure it is a Rotary only day is 17th May. After that the final spots will be a free-for-all to get to 24 cars.

If we get 24 cars then the cost of the track day reduces from £179 to £160.

People are booking at the Blackhorse Inn and the Beckett Arms but you can also book at the Fox & Hounds Country Inn.

So far we have 11 RX-7s and 8 RX-8s with one possible Westory attending...
