130i track day at Bedford Autodrome - Saturday 27 October 2018

Post by Synchromesh » Mon Aug 20, 2018 10:42 am

Following my previous thread, I'm organising a track day on Saturday 27 October at Bedford Autodrome.

It's a chance for all us 130i owners to get together, see each others' cars on track and compare notes.

Novice and seasoned track drivers alike are welcome. If it's going to be your first track day I'm sure one of us more experienced guys will show you the ropes.

The cost is £199 but please don't book yet – I'm going to try and negotiate a group booking discount.

Let me know below if you're coming. Would be interesting to know what you've done on your car too, and roughly how many track days you've done.

Don't hesitate to comment if you have any questions either.

I’m keen. Just looked at the MSV website and noted it had no ability to book a garage. Wonder if all sold out? I bring a lot of carp with me these days

Can any non 130 also come along? :)

It’s too early for me to confirm but I’d love to come, probably in an M4 though.

Cheers all who've replied to far.

The track day is open to anyone but I'm just going to manage the booking for the 130i group for now. It's the first event I've organised on here and I want to make things as simple as possible for myself. If it's a success I'll do another, and maybe then I'll think about adding other cars.

I also know 130is are in the minority on here - if I make the group for everyone we'll be overrun my M135is!

Hi,
I should be able to make it let me know if you manage to work out a discount with them etc, its a 4hr drive for me from cumbria so will need to sort out some accommodation for the Friday night, once we know its a definite I can look at that though.

Thanks for confirming guys. I've added an up to date list to the first post.

Does it work for everyone if I do the booking mid-Sept?

Hi,

I’d like to come along but my car isn’t in the setup I’d like for track use yet.

However I’d like to come along & see everyone’s 130 & show them my own?

Thanks
