Donington, the fantastic Midlands circuit with the famous Craner Curves, is back to its ususal place in our calendar this year. We hope to see 50 MGs of various models having safe fun on track. We extend a welcome to LoT who will be taking one of the sessions making the day up to 75 cars. This is a three session per hour day with 7 sessions each of 20 mins.We expect each car to have 2 hr 20 min of track time during the day assuming no stoppages. There will be plenty of space on track, running 25 cars on the two mile circuit will give each car an average of about 140 yards separation.
This track day will also have a special 'First-Timer' offer! We appreciate that your first time on track can appear to be a little daunting so we are running one of the sessions especially for first-timers or inexperienced track drivers; offering extra support:-
Instruction and Coaching
We regret that instruction or Coaching 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.
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 £42!. Book and pay at the same time you book your place by selecting the coaching option.
Helmet hireSecond Drivers
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.If your second driver's experience is significantly different from your own please email the event manager below.
Three key items worth mentioning before you book :
You must bring your FULL driving license to the sign-on - or you may not be allowed on track.
All persons going on track must wear a suitable crash helmet of recognised manufacture and have arms and legs covered.
Don't forget to add your MGCC number before you book to get the member's price
