We are very pleased to be returning to the Silverstone Arena GP circuit this year having been unable to run this event in 2016. We will be operating from the Heritage pits, not the new Wing complex. The curcuit is as used for the British Grand Prix. It is 1/2 mile longer than the previous GP circuit and the new Arena section is a real technical challenge. This is a three session per hour day with each session lasting 20 minutes. We expect each car to have 2 hours of track time throughout the day, assuming no stoppages. There is only one MG session with the two other sessions being taken by partner car clubs.
Beginners / First Timers please note that due to restrictions in our contract with Silverstone we regret that first time track day drivers may not participate in this day. Please check your website user profile to make sure the experience level recorded there reflects your current status.
MGoT is pleased to offer an opportunity to develop specific areas of your driving skills 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 are very limited and the cost is an unbelievable £42 ! Book and pay at the same time you book your place by selecting the coaching option.
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 this. Please note we are unable to provide more than two instruction sessions per car. Any additional booked will have to be cancelled. We regret that instruction is not available in cars which are not fitted with seatbelts
We have a 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. If your second driver's experience is significantly different to your own, please discuss this with Dave Pearce.
