I have sent pm's to the guys that expressed interest just awaiting a response. If both reserves would like a place I was willing to drop to the 6th as I'm flexible with the dates. In turn potentially that would then fill both dates for best pricing.

Thanks for reply. So should my usual insurance be enough or do I need some special track day insurance?

I see there's a final spot on 6th in the other thread, so may go for that if you could confirm this bit for me. Cheers.

If there's a possibility for the 21st still (if other names haven't taken it), please could you put my name down in that spot? I can pay deposit tmw morning.

Cheers
Chris.

Chris, PM digitalrogue and see if any of the guys on the reserve list have responded to his PM's. If not then I assume you can take a place.

Just spoke with Jo to get a feel the for day as I have been looking at advanced driver training options.

Although this day fits around their Performance Driver structure it isn't as "track" focussed as you might think.

After a very good and detailed chat with Jo this is definitely the kind of experience and learning opportunity I was looking for so I've paid in full.

If you were thinking about some advance driver training or wanting to learn a bit more about yourself and/or your car then I would not be put off by the "performance" aspect in the name and give Jo a call to discuss what you're looking for as this day might be just the ticket for you.

Thanks Wes for sorting this out. Properly looking forward to this now!

Thanks Nick - that's good info. I've down for 6th May (or perhaps that last spot on 21st) but was just started to think "hmmm, will I be ragging my 2 month old car and risking stuffing it in the hedge?!" :)..... Jo just emailed the details and mentioned about the insurance aspect and said they haven't had an incident in 12 years....so those feel reasonable odds to me!

Yes, the "what if" scenarios were going round in my head. But if you think about it, the only people on the circuits/tracks on this day will be the handful of us and we're all under instruction.

We won't have the track day scenarios of someone else going in to you or causing you to make do something you didn't plan to so the risks, in my opinion, are much, much less.

I've never been on a track day before (either car or bike) and have only done experience days (corporate jollies..!) with the likes of JP Palmer or at Rockingham in someone elses car - again under supervision (apart from the single seaters). This will be a first in my own car so I wanted to be sure about it and speaking to Jo gave me the confidence to go for it.

fyi one of our training vehicles is a 330d ... amazing car ... so you wouldn't be out of place ... and honest, there is no 'ragging' of cars ... just exploring their capabilities and developing your own :thumbs:

Hi Jo....deposit just paid to you. Wes; PM just sent. I'll take the last spot on 21st if available, but happy to go on the 6th session if the others you've PM'd do come back and want that spot on 21st.

Thanks all. Should be a cracking day!
