    Exclamation Track-day - 27th May 2008!!

    Hello everybody!

    Im arranging a track-day at Curborough Sprint Track on Tuesday 27th May (following bank-holiday Monday).

    Ive got 10 places available and it is a first-come-first-served basis.

    We will have use of the site, track & toilet facilities for the whole day (09:00 to 16:00ish). All those wishing to take part will need to sign a disclaimer accepting full responsibility for themselves and their property. Therefore, the track, its owners, AOC/ Astra-sport and the organisers of the event can not be held responsible for any damage, loss or injury.

    Now that we have got the legal bit out the way, we can concentrate on the fun part! The track is around a Kilometre long and shaped similarly to a kidney bean. Tightening corners, the chicane, adverse camber and the hair-pin make the track quite technical and to drive it well, will take some laps. We will all start with steady laps to warm the cars up and get familiar with the track. From there, you may progress at your own pace.

    There are a few rules:
    Only one car out on track at a time
    Maximum of 2 laps at a time (depending on how we are getting-on, this may increase to a maximum of 4, but at organisers discretion)
    Passengers are allowed in the car
    Seat-belts/Harnesses must be worn by all
    The driver must not use a mobile phone/ camera/ video recording equipment when driving on site
    If anyone spins-off, no other vehicle can go onto the track until the vehicle is recovered and is back behind the safety barriers
    We ask all persons to act sensibly and responsibly and if anyone is acting dangerously, then they will asked to stop using the track and they may be asked to leave the site
    Off track, vehicles are to stay to a 10 mph speed limit and no fooling around in the cars off track will be tolerated
    Any damage caused to the track or its facilities will be paid for by those causing it
    All rubbish to be removed from the site
    We must respect the track and the facilities, or potentially, all in attendance and the club may not be able to use the track again!

    Track time will cost 40 per car and this is payable on the day before going onto the track.

    Non-members are welcome, but members take precedence.

    Please post your user names in a list below to provisionally book your place. There is a reserve list incase anyone has to pull-out. Confirmation that you will attend will be need by May 13th. If it is not received by this time, then your place will be offered the first person on the reserve. Places are available to persons out-side of our region.

    Any questions, please feel free to post. Look forward to hearing from you!

    Nobody interested?!?! I'm disappointed!

    It's 40 per car for the whole day, not like Castle Coombe which is 20 for 15 minutes! Also note that I said 'per car', if there are a couple of you that want to share your track time with one car then that's fine! Got a max on number of cars though, hence the 10 places.

    Here are some photographs to hopefully wet your appertites. If I don't get much interest soon, then I'll have to open it upto the whole club. Come on lads & lasses, it will be a great day on track for our region!

    Sign up!
    Kind regards,

    Russ

    Thanks Keif for your posts! Are you interested in joining us?

    WayneGSI, you can see where it is from the link Keif has posted, but I was planning on meeting everybody somewhere mutual (place to be decided when I know where everybody is coming from) and then go in convoy to the site.

    Glad you are interested though, and I hope you can get that day off!?

    Cheers!
    Kind regards,

    Russ
