Additional Information

Donington, the fantastic Midlands circuit withthe famous Craner Curves, is back to its ususal place in our calendar this year. We hopeto 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 makingthe 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 dayassuming 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 140yards separation. 
 
First Timers
This track day will also have a special 'First-Timer' offer! Weappreciate that your first time on track can appear to be a littledaunting so we are running one of the sessions especially forfirst-timers or inexperienced track drivers; offering extra support:-
  • There are a limited number of FREE instruction sessions which we are offering to genuine first timers. This is limited to one free session per car.   
  • an instructor will give special, first-timer, group classroombriefings during the day to provide guidance on the circuit and trackdriving.
  • experienced drivers will offer a buddy system. You will beallocated a buddy who will help you learn the ropes - from sign-on tothe end of the day.
Instructionand 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 ourAssociation of Racing Drivers Schools (ARDS) Grade A qualified instructors. Westrongly advise all levels of experience to take advantage of these, but it isespecially beneficial for first time and novice drivers. Book and pay at thesame time you book your place. Please note we are unable to provide more thantwo instruction sessions per car. Any additional booked will be cancelled. Tohelp us schedule the instructor's time between the groups we have separated sessionsinto three types :-
 
SightingLap Instruction. - Thisis ideal for first timers, your instruction will be first thing in the morningduring the sighting laps whilst there is no overtaking and cars are running ata slower pace. This allows plenty of time for the instructor to describe andguide 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 mirrorfor approaching cars.
 
NoviceInstruction - This is our standard instruction, carried out through the morning novice groupsessions. Please book this only if you are a novice or first timer.
 
Advanced& Intermediate Instruction - Thisis our standard instruction, carried out through the morning intermediate andadvanced session. Please book this only if you are Experienced or Somewhatexperienced.
 
CoachingMGoT is pleased to offer an opportunity to develop specific areas of you driving skills and so to increase your track day enjoyment. Before youspend any more cash on improvements to your car consider this. MGoT will now offer drivers, dedicated, one-on-one coaching with an ARDSinstructor for your entire afternoon track time. Places will be limitedand the cost is an unbelievable £42!. Book and pay at the same time youbook your place by selecting the coaching option.
Helmet hireWe 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 asyou book your place.

The second driver must sit as passengerduring the sighting laps and then perform his own sighting laps at alower speed during his first session on track.If your second driver'sexperience is significantly different from your own please email theevent 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.
