    Cool, I've done 3 of the trackdays over the last few years! Thruxton, Rockingham & Brands...can't go wrong at £95 for about 1.5 hrs track time, plus BBQ! Best bit is not having abuse your own car

    Cool, I've booked the Owners evening at Silverstone. It's just a shame Thruxton sold out within hours, but there is talk of VX adding another date...fingers X!!

    Well I loved the Anglesey trackday experience, hospitality was tops, weather was hot and it was a bloody good laugh and well worth the money, - hot lap with Tom Onslow-Cole won't fade from the memory fast either

    Anyone going to the Power Festival as James Martin was getting some practice in ready to race at Silverstone
