This is the third year we will be joining our good friends at Lotus-on-Track at the Lotus test track at Hethel. Numbers are very limited so early booking is recommended.
Details of the circuit can be found here http://www.lotusdrivingacademy.com/hethel/track
There will be a session dedicated to MGs so you won't be mixing with the 'Exige club' on circuit although our session it will be open to all MG experience levels. We are sorry but this day is only open to MG/Rover registered members. Cars must be roadworthy and comply with current MOT legislation. You must bring your FULL driving license to the sign-on.
All persons going on track must wear a suitable crash helmet of recognised manufacture and have arms and legs covered.
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. We regret that instruction is not possible in cars that are not fitted with seatbelts.
The following rule applies at this circuit: ANY vehicle without a hard top or fixed roof will require occupants to wear full face helmets.
We have a small number of helmets (all full face) 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 from your own please email the event manager below.
Details about the day
A burger van is usually available on site, alternately you can bring your own food or take a trip to the local Waitrose, which has a restaurant, during the lunch break.
Access to the Lotus site is restricted. We are happy for you to bring a second driver or a passenger but they must arrive with you and you will be checked in at the gatehouse at the main entrance. The venue is not open to the general public or spectators. Cameras and photography are not allowed as there may be development cars around and Lotus obviously do not want these appearing on Facebook! In-car cameras are OK but must be solidly fitted, no suction mounts.
We will e-mail an event guide with final instructions during the week before the event, please read it carefully when it arrives. This event guide will also be posted in the Forum.
