Our traditional Season's closer at the ever popular Brands Hatch Indy Circuit. This is a three session per hour day. Sessions last 20 mins. We expect each car to have 2 hours of track time during the day assuming no stoppages.
Once all the bookings are in we'll assign the sessions into 3 x 18 cars on the basis of experience, so that one session will be more suitable for novices, one for intermediate and one for the more experienced track day drivers. Cars must be roadworthy and comply with current MOT legislation. You must bring your FULL driving license to the sign-on - that's the plastic card AND the paper version, or you may not be allowed on track.
Your first session on track has a high task loading. We have a very limited first session instruction available. The first 3 laps will be behind a pace car at lower speed with free driving thereafter. The instructor will sit with you during this session and show you the way round the circuit, pointing out markers, sight lines etc. As the sighting laps are carried out at a lower speed with no overtaking, there is more opportunity to practice correct car positioning and learn the best line. Please book and pay at the same time you book your track day place.
We encourage all drivers to take the opportunity of instruction with our Association of Racing Drivers Schools (ARDS) Grade A qualified instructors. We strongly advise all levels of experience to take advantage of these, but it is especially beneficial for first time and novice drivers. Please book and pay at the same time you book your track day place.
Please note we are unable to provide more than two instruction sessions per car. Any additional booked will be cancelled.
MGoT is pleased to offer an opportunity to develop specific areas of you driving skills and so to increase your track day enjoyment. Before you spend any more cash on improvements to your car consider this. MGoT will now offer drivers, dedicated, one-on-one coaching with an ARDS instructor for your entire afternoon track time. Places will be limited and the cost is an unbelievable £30! Book and pay at the same time you book your place by selecting the coaching option.
We have a small number of helmets available to hire on a first come, first served basis and these can be booked online at the same time as you book your place.
You can book to bring along a second driver but we can only allow one additional driver per car. The second driver must sit as passenger during the sighting laps and then perform his own sighting laps at a lower speed during his first session on track.
Please especially note the following conditions of our track hire, over which MGs on Track has no control; all circuits are subject to local planning regulations to allow track days to take place. Over the last 12 months they have all become much more strict in enforcing these regulations. Any participant who cannot comply with these rules and is excluded from the participation in the event will have no recourse to a refund from the circuit or MGs on Track:-
1) Exhaust : The static noise test for this day is 105dbA and all cars must pass this test, in addition a drive by noise limit also applies. The drive by limit is 92dbA and is measured at various points around the circuit, a car exceeding this limit will be black flagged and must return to the pit lane. The driver will be given an opportunity to address the noise issue, fitting an extra silencer for example, but if the car exceeds the drive by noise limit a second time it will not be allowed to take any further part in the event.
2) Tyre Squeal : Any driver causing excessive, constant, or unnecessary tyre squeal will be issued with a warning. If the driver does not modify his driving and a second warning is issued then the driver will not be allowed to drive any further in the event.
Details about the day
