This is the second of two visits here in 2017 and will be a four session per hour morning with open pit lane in the afternoon. Each morning session will have 12 cars and last 15 minutes. We expect each car to have one hour of sessioned time in the morning followed by 3 hours of open pit lane in the afternoon when a maximum of 12 out of the 48 cars attending will be on track at any one time.
Morning sessions will be allocated according to driver experience and car so that one session will be more suitable to beginners and the less experienced track day drivers, two to intermediates and one to the more experienced. In the afternoon, there will be a mix of experience on track at any one time.Each session will have 12 cars and last 15 mins. we expect each car to have one hour and forty-five minutes of track time during the day assuming no stoppages.
The sessions will be allocated according to driver experience and car so that one session will be more suitable to beginners and the less experienced track day drivers, one to intermediates and one to the more experienced. 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 regret that instruction is not available in cars which are not fitted with seatbelts.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. Book and pay at the same time you book your place. Please note we are unable to provide more than two instruction sessions per car. Any additional booked will be cancelled. To help us schedule the instructor's time between the groups we have separated sessions into three types :-
Sighting Lap Instruction. - This is ideal for first timers, your instruction will be first thing in the morning during the sighting laps whilst there is no overtaking and cars are running at a slower pace. This allows plenty of time for the instructor to describe and guide you along the best line through the corners. There being no overtaking, you don't have the additional task load of keeping an eye in your rear mirror for approaching cars.
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. Second Drivers
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 James Mumford at JamesM@MGs-on-Track.co.uk
